At the start of this year California became the first state to put a price on carbon emissions. The Cap-and-Trade program, part of California's Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32), forms a core part of that state’s ambitious energy policy targets.
As large energy consumers, how will this affect data center operators? What efficiencies can be put in place to take the new tax into account internally or should more focus lie on the utility grid?
And how will this impact data center investment? what will the continued trend toward virtualization and consolidation mean in this context? There will be fewer data centers, but will higher densities demand and energy demand counter-act any savings?
As converged infrastructure becomes the norm and network programmability on the rise, how is this changing the data center landscape? Is the world of many Clouds being made easier? And how will the continued evolution of virtualization, SDN and the emergence of the Software Defined Data Center make themselves felt? Is the continued move towards virtualilzation and multi-vendor networks actually simplifying and economising the data center?
With 5 halls offering up to date information from leading industry experts in the form of individual sessions addressing Power, DCIM, virtualization, Cloud Computing and the rise of the Software Defined Data Center, DCD Converged San Francisco is the event to explore the latest trends and technologies in the data center space.

Registered attendees of an event are able to access the majority of the material presented after an event. We are introducing a new system - PresentationPLAYBACK - which enables you to listen to a full sound recording of the session along with the PowerPoint and any associated movies in a single file.
You will therefore need to have a recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer in order to view them (Google Chrome Users need not worry about this, as it's pre-built-in). Although we now endeavour to record all presentations in this format, occasionally - for technical reasons beyond our control - it is not possible to fully capture all sessions; in such cases you will only be able to view a PDF.
To access PresentationPLAYBACK you must be signed into your account. Click on the MyDCD button on the top navigation panel which will take you to your personal homepage - on the right hand column you will find an area headed 'My Presentations'. Here are listed the conferences you have access to (see access and restrictions below). The links will take you to the programme page of that conference, and by clicking on a session you will be taken to the individual conference asset where you will find the feature. Alternatively you can navigate to the conference site you wish and acess the file directly from there - remember you must be signed in.
DatacenterDynamics Conference sessions with this feature available will display the PresentationPLAYBACK icon:
The player is simple to use. Click on the play button for automatic playback, or advance through the slides.
The conference presentations you can view depend on your membership level. Silver members only have access to those from the events they have actually attended, whilst Gold members have access to presentation materials from all our events around the world.
