    It’s Time to Commit to Driving Efficient IT Julian Kudritzki, Chief Operating Officer, Uptime Institute Recorded: Sep 13 2017 57 mins
    Join Julian Kudritzki, COO of Uptime Institute to explore the modern business challenges associated with delivering computing services in the new era of Cloud-driven IT. He will cover delivering these business services at the right cost, with a high level of efficiency and a keen eye on defending corporate sustainability. Uptime Institute’s Efficient IT assessment provides a management methodology that evaluates, scores, and benchmarks Leadership, IT Infrastructure, and the Data Center.

    Find out how this approach ensures close scrutiny, and eliminating waste, from data center power and cooling systems; the asset management of compute, storage, network; and—weighed most heavily—the leadership (i.e., energy management plan, technology adoption plan, cloud strategy, KPIs). Uptime Institute’s Efficient IT customers realize dramatic long-term savings in operational expenditures, significant increased asset utilization as well as directly support a strategic corporate responsibility profile. The Efficient IT Assessment is based on multiple decades of research and protocol development and for our Efficient IT customers, have identified cost savings between 3x-200x the cost of the assessment.
  • From Disaster to Recovery: What Hurricane Harvey Means for your Data Center
    From Disaster to Recovery: What Hurricane Harvey Means for your Data Center George Crump & Curtis Preston, Storage Switzerland, Christopher Brown & Scott Killian, Uptime Institute Recorded: Sep 6 2017 60 mins
    In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey that swept Southern Texas last week, colocation facilities and companies with data centers in the region (and elsewhere) are faced with the stark reality that a strong data center and disaster recovery plan is vital.

    Every disaster recovery plan has two major parts. One is preparation, the other is recovery. Join Storage Switzerland’s Senior Analyst W. Curtis Preston (a.k.a. Mr. Backup) along with Uptime Institute’s CTO Christopher Brown and VP of Efficient IT Programs Scott Killian for a live round table discussion moderated by Storage Switzerland Founder George Crump, as we help you design a recovery strategy for a Hurricane Harvey-sized disaster.

    In this session you will learn:

    1. How you should be preparing for a return while at the disaster site
    2. What are the first three steps to take when your primary data center is ready
    3. How you should de-stage your DR site when your primary is operational

    Join us live on Wednesday September 6th at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET
  • The Evolution of DCIM: Remote, Data-driven and Cloudy
    The Evolution of DCIM: Remote, Data-driven and Cloudy Rhonda Ascierto, Research Director - Datacenter Technologies, 451 Research Recorded: Jul 13 2017 59 mins
    New cloud services for datacenter management are transforming traditional on-premises approaches. By applying Internet of Things technology, DCIM-based cloud services can deliver the benefits of DCIM without the deployment costs – and over time they promise value beyond what is possible on-premises.

    Key Topics Addressed in this Session:
    • How DCIM data is being exploited today
    • How big-data analytics and AI is adding to the power of DCIM
    • What data will remain on-prem and what will go to cloud
  • Disrupted Data Center:cloud-based resiliency spread workload across data centers
    Disrupted Data Center:cloud-based resiliency spread workload across data centers Todd Traver, VP, IT Optimization and Strategy & Andy Lawrence, VP Research, Data Center Technologies at 451 Research Recorded: May 18 2017 55 mins
    Join Todd Traver, VP IT Optimization and Strategy at Uptime Institute and Andy Lawrence, VP Research, Data Center Technologies at 451 Research for a discussion on the opportunities, benefits and challenges to successful implementation of a resilient multi-site workload solution.

    The evolution of compute from single-site data centers with proven in-house engineering to a multi-site hybrid computing model is enabling distributed models of resiliency that can achieve high availability and rapid recovery alongside improved performance. The recent move by many to the public cloud is further accelerating this cloud-based resiliency approach. The benefits are potentially vast. But there are also risks and limitations created by the complex software and coordination of new third-party services and technologies necessary to orchestrate the applications and data.
