Webinar: The Edge: Mission Critical Computing

Presentation Title:
The Edge: Mission Critical Computing

Presenters:
Luca Beltramino, Senior Vice President, Global Programs, Uptime Institute

Summary:
Join us for a discussion about the growing opportunity to bring computing closer to both users and data for reasons of simplicity, quicker deployment and cost avoidance. We’ll explore what it takes to leverage this edge capacity in mission critical infrastructures as well as the key value and application drivers for these distributed deployments. In addition, we’ll demonstrate that the core requirements for mission critical continue to apply regardless of deployment size, edge to core.

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.
