    Optimizing Data Center Efficiency & Cloud Operations - Expert Panel Session
    Peter Judge, TechWeek; Matthew Hawkins, CNet Training; Simon Campbell-Whyte, Data Centre Alliance; Michalis Grigoratos, HP Recorded: Aug 16 2012 56 mins
    Energy efficiency is one of the biggest issues facing a data center industry which is still in its infancy. If you are an enterprise or a medium size businesses, how should you go about eliminating costly waste from your data center - or would it save energy and effort to outsource it to the cloud?

    This panel looks at ways to tackle energy management, IT architecture, and the all important people issue.
  • Automated fibre management for cost control and increased uptime in data centres
    Automated fibre management for cost control and increased uptime in data centres
    Gady Rosenfeld and Rosemary McGlashon EU Product Manager 3M Communication Markets Division Recorded: May 15 2012 36 mins
    More enterprise businesses are capitalizing on the benefits of moving their data centre functions to private and hybrid cloud hosting facilities that provide cost effective scaling of physical infrastructure. Whereas numerous solutions to automate and remotely manage data centre power and cooling functions exist, fibre connectivity is still manually managed today. Automated Fibre Management (AFM) is a new technology designed specifically to automate, switch and manage fibre infrastructure. This webinar will discuss how AFM technology allows a data centre owner to remotely provision, troubleshoot and manage his fibre infrastructure, thus eliminating cost of downtime, reducing operational costs and removing barriers to cost effective scaling of data centre infrastructure.

    Sustainable fire suppression solution for data centres - 10am CET, April 3rd
    Bart Goeman, 3M Electronics Markets Materials Division Recorded: Apr 3 2012 48 mins
    3M has developed, introduced and commercialized an unprecedented sustainable halocarbon clean extinguishing agent whereby researchers have struck a balance of not only being effective in fire extinguishing but also demonstrating superior environmental properties in combination with a low toxicity and reduced space and weight requirements. It should also possess sufficient chemical/thermal stability during handling and in end use.. This halocarbon belongs to the fluoroketone class. The chemical formula of CF3CF2C(O)C(CF3)2 is identified in the new ISO 14520 standard by the ASHRAE nomenclature FK-5-1-12.
    Commercially known as 3MTM Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid and manufactured by 3M Company, this novel clean extinguishing agent has been shown to combine the performance and environmental attributes sought by industries that demand the high level of performance previously provided by halon until its phase-out. Compared to inert gas and water mist, systems using Novec 1230 fluid are much compacter and as such require much less space (and weight concerns).
    What is unprecedented is this fluoromaterial's environmental properties that are on the order of naturally occurring compounds. Novec 1230 fluid has a surprisingly short atmospheric lifetime and yet has exhibited the stability necessary for use as a clean extinguishing agent.
    Novec 1230 fluid was introduced in 2002 as a halon replacement alternative to HFCs and now has a history of use globally for the protection of special hazards / high value assets, especially in occupied spaces resulting in greenhouse gas emission reduction in industries where environmental objectives stress the use of sustainable technologies.
  • Delivering your next generation data-centre or server room
    Delivering your next generation data-centre or server room
    Dominic Wordsworth, Product Manager, Computerlinks Recorded: Apr 3 2012 49 mins
    The data-centre landscape has changed dramatically in recent years as virtualisation technology has matured and the hypervisor has become the platform of choice for deploying IT services. This first phase has generally involved less critical applications alongside test and development environments. Initial cost savings though have often been negated by the hidden costs of technology transformation – new licensing regimes, re-skilling costs amongst others. As organisations move to the next phase and start to virtualise more business critical applications, they are looking to address key issues such as improved management, optimisation, resilience and performance whilst at the same time reducing the operational costs involved. This short webinar will highlight some of these key issues and discuss some of the options available today to solve some of the challenges you face in building out your next generation data-centre or server room.
