Executive Symposium: Las Vegas - 2017
Presentations & Recorded Sessions

Welcome Keynote for Executive Symposium: Las Vegas 2017

 

From Uptime Institute's President

"Life used to be easy when you managed one data center. Today, the typical Enterprise IT organization has data center assets they own and operate, data center assets they own that someone else operates, a number of colocation sites where they deploy applications, an array of telecom hubs and edge data centers to optimize performance and a number of cloud service partners - this hybrid enterprise IT strategy is what Executive Symposium: Las Vegas is all about."

Lee Kirby
President, Uptime Institute
