November 4, 2009, San Diego, CA – Energy experts estimate that data centers eat up as much as 3% of all electricity generated in the United States. Executives who are intent on both reducing the environmental impact and cost of their data center while finding ways to improve capacity, storage and efficiency, are looking for answers. Corporate, non-profit and government sector executives, who are not necessarily IT professionals, must become familiar with how resource consumption within their data center affects things like electricity usage and carbon emissions. These same executives must find ways to address the short term financial commitment to “greening” their data center while easing the budget pressures that come along with new regulations.
The Green Data Center Conference, hosted by the Global Strategic Management Institute (GSMI), scheduled for February 2-4, 2010 in San Diego will provide industry executives with answers tools and information that they need to navigate the seemingly complex task of “greening” their data center including everything from improving capacity, lowering energy usage and costs, to understanding the role of the facility and how to create a master plan.
Program topics include: Green Storage & Backup; How Economics, Regulation & Resources are Impacting Corporate Data Strategies; Cloud Computing; Outsourcing; Building Facilities; Quick Steps to Reduce Energy Consumption; Leveraging Virtualization in the Data Center; Cyber Security & Disaster Recovery
Confirmed participating companies and organizations include: I/O Data Center, Adaptec, IBM, Digital Realty Trust, Storage IO, Xiotech, Jones Lang LaSalle, the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) and many more.
Four separately bookable workshops are also offered: Incorporating the Human Factor in the Green Data Center; Smart Data Centers; Advanced Energy Efficient Data Centers; Financial & Environmental Benefits of Virtualization
