World series conference organiser updates content streams to better frame the “North-meets-South” (of the rack) conversation

With release of the updated schedule of content tracks for 2016 DatacenterDynamics continues in the vanguard of a new-world conversation driving the data center sector forward into the unchartered waters of the zettabyte era, where cloud and IoT dominate. 

Layer Cake

“The technology and services that underpin both on-premise and shared digital infrastructure are evolving at such a fast pace that it’s difficult for both traditional vendor and end-user silos to keep up,” says Bruce Taylor, EVP, DatacenterDynamics. “Their existence is directly challenged by both automation and hardware commoditization, so we’re leading the discussion of ‘what’s next?’ across the full enterprise digital infrastructure eco-system.”

George Rockett, CEO, DatacenterDynamics adds, “Tracks are the essential content themes that will permeate DCD’s research initiatives, editorial content schedules and conference programs in 2016. Existing tracks have been updated and we have added two new ones; ‘Core>Edge’ that dives deep into network transformation and ‘Software-Defined’ which explores the evolution toward data-driven data center automation at every layer of the infrastructure cake and the move towards the truly Software-Defined Data Centers.”
