  • Learn from the Data Center Big Boys: 3 DCIM Case Studies
    Learn from the Data Center Big Boys: 3 DCIM Case Studies
    Matt Bushell, Sr. Product & Corporate Marketing Manager, Nlyte Software Recorded: Feb 12 2014 46 mins
    Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) is rapidly ascending the CIO agenda as a way to manage data center assets over their lifecycle more efficiently. Huge cost ramifications are at play given that older equipment consumes much higher rates of power, new data centers can easily cost $100 million dollars to build, and the only constant in a data center is change.

    Hear from Nlyte Software, a leader in DCIM, on how some of their largest clients have benefitted in these 3 case studies:

    Banking – how did one of the world’s largest banks with over 1 million square feet of data center space, 25,000 racks and 120,000 servers spread across North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific reach their goal of replacing 15% of their data center assets annually?

    Consumer Electronics – how did one of the world’s largest consumer electronics and technology companies running nine data centers on four continents with a capacity of more than 18,000 racks and 350,000 individual servers come to replace 800 assets…per day?

    Retail – how did one of the world’s largest home improvement retailers operating four data centers with over 1,500 servers across a national footprint get over 500 users to participate in asset management workflow?
  • Server Energy Usage & Costs: Implications for the Cloud & In-house Data Centers
    Server Energy Usage & Costs: Implications for the Cloud & In-house Data Centers
    Jonathan Koomey, Consulting Professor, Stanford University Recorded: Aug 16 2012 34 mins
    This talk will describe the key driving forces affecting data center costs, developing and documenting detailed examples from available data, estimating costs and correcting them for inflation, and explaining the implications of the results. It also will explore some ways to improve data center efficiency, the most important and most neglected of which relate to institutional changes that can help companies reduce the total costs of computing services.
  • Storage 2012: In the Time of the Infrastruggle
    Storage 2012: In the Time of the Infrastruggle
    Jon Toigo, CEO of Toigo Partners International and Chairman of the Data Management Institute Recorded: Jun 13 2012 42 mins
    In 2012, IT planners find themselves in the grips of an “Infrastruggle” – a battle for storage strategy keyed to infrastructure and technology memes and bounded by economic forces. In this session, Jon Toigo, CEO of Toigo Partners International and Chairman of the Data Management Institute identifies the drivers of the infrastruggle and offers guidelines for building a business-savvy storage strategies that will provide a foundation for meeting present and future business data management requirements.

    Toigo will survey six trends that threaten to increase storage cost and data risk, while reducing productivity at exactly the time when business managers are turning to IT to make fewer staff more productive. Then, he will survey effective short and longer term measures that can be taken to improve the efficiency of storage infrastructure in terms of its performance, capacity and data protection management.
  • Cloud Storage: Determining Its Worth – Panel Session

    Peter Judge, TechWeek Europe; Alex McDonald, SNIA; Ben Woo, formerly of IDC; Hillel Kolodner, VISION Cloud Recorded: Jun 13 2012 59 mins
    With everyone talking about cloud storage, you would think it would be the end-all solution for many organizations wanting a better storage strategy for their infrastructure. However, is it a strategy you should be looking at? Join this panel of storage experts as they jump into the cloud to see when cloud storage is worth it and when it isn't.

    This presentation will cover topics such as:
    - the definition of cloud storage
    - security and legal issues
    - management problems by incorporating cloud into your storage strategy
    - the future of cloud storage and new technologies
  • Who Needs a Data Center? Mixed Strategy for Cloud Migration in Higher Education
    Who Needs a Data Center? Mixed Strategy for Cloud Migration in Higher Education
    A. Michael Berman, Vice President for Technology & Communication, California State University Channel Islands Recorded: May 16 2012 46 mins
    The availability of so many options and platforms for cloud migration seems daunting when you first start out. We started with the assumption that, at least for a smaller university, the economics of the cloud will lead to the end of life of our data center well before the end of this decade, but the benefits, costs, and opportunities for cloud migration are quite uneven and shifting rapidly. We'll share our journey and the criteria we use to decide what to move to the cloud (and where), and what to keep on premises - for now.
  • What Is The Cloud Doing To Your Data Center?
    What Is The Cloud Doing To Your Data Center?
    Owen Garrett, Director, Riverbed Technologies Recorded: May 16 2012 42 mins
    How is cloud computing increasing the pressure on traditional enterprise data centers, (both small and large) to react rapidly to the changing needs of the business and their customers? What new tools and working practices are emerging to enable technology professionals to create and deliver high quality services more quickly?

    In this session, we’ll look at ways you can distill cloud computing down to principles that you can apply to how you manage your data center and deliver services and build the applications that support them. We’ll look at software-based networking as a case in point, and consider how cloud principles can support your devops and agile initiatives.
