  • Enhancing Data Center Operational Performance via Wearable Technology Enhancing Data Center Operational Performance via Wearable Technology Jose Ruiz, VP Engineering Operations, Compass Datacenters Recorded: Mar 16 2016 41 mins
    As has often been reported, human error is one of the largest factors in data center outages. Since estimates of the average cost of an outage now exceed $740,000, the ability to reduce or eliminate man-caused outages can make a substantial impact on the organization’s bottom line. In this presentation, Jose Ruiz, VP of Engineering Operations for Compass Datacenters, will present a case study on how the introduction of wearable technology has enhanced one customer’s operational performance substantially.
  • The Calibrated Data Center: A Case Study in Fine Tuning a Facility’s Operations The Calibrated Data Center: A Case Study in Fine Tuning a Facility’s Operations Jose Ruiz, Director of Engineering, Compass Datacenters Recorded: Sep 15 2015 42 mins
    New tools have dramatically enhanced the ability of data center operators to base important data center decisions about capacity planning and operational performance on actual data and actionable insights derived from that information. By combining modeling technologies to effectively calibrate the data center during the commissioning process and then using these benchmarks in modeling prospective configuration scenarios, data center operators can optimize the efficiency of their facilities prior to the movement or addition of a single rack. In this presentation, Jose Ruiz will share a real world case study that illustrates how predictive analytics can lead to smarter capacity planning and more effective operational decisions.
  • The Changing Nature of Data Center Decision Making The Changing Nature of Data Center Decision Making Chris Curtis, Senior Vice President, Compass Datacenters Recorded: Aug 18 2015 46 mins
    The nature of the issues facing prospective data center operators are rapidly evolving. For many years data center related decisions were largely tactical and reactive in nature. With the escalating demand for the immediate delivery of information and content, coupled with the emergence of the substantial data processing requirements of innovations such as the Internet of Things, data center decisions must be made under an entirely new paradigm. In this presentation, Chris Curtis will discuss how the changing requirements for data centers necessitate that operators make their decisions within a larger strategic context to ensure that they are capable of addressing a company’s evolving needs for a decade or longer.
  • Unintended Consequences, or 'When Data Center Efficiency Attacks' Unintended Consequences, or 'When Data Center Efficiency Attacks' Chris Crosby, CEO of Compass Datacenters Recorded: Apr 28 2015 32 mins
    The road to data center efficiency is paved with good intentions…but littered with unintended consequences. In this presentation, Chris Crosby will discuss how the industry-wide drive to increase data center efficiency by data center operators, end users, IT equipment manufacturers and others can ironically lead to major inefficiencies and dysfunction that go directly against the objects of these efforts. Crosby will discuss how high-density server architecture, government regulations, virtualization and other efficiency-minded initiatives are resulting in unexpected challenges and negative results. Crosby will also talk through approaches to achieving data center efficiency that avoid these unintended consequences.
