Webinar: Scalable Data Center Infrastructure: Benefits & Challenges to Modular Deployment

This is a recording of a presentation at Uptime Institute's Executive Symposium: Las Vegas in 2017.

Presentation Title:
Scalable Data Center Infrastructure: Benefits & Challenges to Modular Deployment

Moderator:
Kevin Heslin, Chief Editor, Uptime Institute

Panelists:
Doug Kindig, Regional Sales Manager, Starline
Dave Sterlace, Global Head of Technology for Data Center Industry Sector, ABB
Jeff Fidacaro, Senior Analyst, Datacenter Technologies, 451 Research

Summary:
Many data center owners are taking a modular or phased construction approach to reduce the costs of design, construction, and operation and build time. This approach allows companies to make a smaller initial investment and to delay some capital expenditures by scaling capacity with business growth. However, these benefits bring new challenges.

Data center infrastructure experts from Starline, ABB and 451 Research participate in a panel session moderated by Uptime Institute to discuss how the drive for scalability is changing the landscape of data center design and operations.



Webinar: Data Center Resiliency in the Age of Cloud

This is a recording of a presentation at Uptime Institute's Executive Symposium: Las Vegas in 2017.

Presentation Title:
Data Center Resiliency in the Age of Cloud

Speakers:
Andy Lawrence, Executive Director of Research, Uptime Institute
Todd Traver, VP IT Optimization Strategies, Uptime Institute

Summary:
The evolution of compute from single-site data centers to a multi-site hybrid computing model is enabling distributed models of resiliency that can achieve high availability and rapid recovery alongside improved performance. But there are also risks and limitations created by the complex software and coordination of new third-party services, as well as the technologies necessary to orchestrate applications and data. This session will discuss the pros and cons of four resilient architectures (traditional single-site, linked-site, distributed-site, cloud-based).
