Many large organizations are facing pressure to meet demanding availability requirements, often with budgetary constraints and aging infrastructure. Recent high profile outages demonstrate facilities management competency is critical to your company’s success. This session outlines 14 top considerations developing an enterprise-grade data center facilities
Your mission-critical datacenter runs on a highly resilient infrastructure: it has N+1, N+2 or better still, 2N mechanical and electrical capacity redundancy for critical components. But does it really? Based on Panoptic’s experience many datacenters carry a variety of lurking issues that might develop into a cascading failure. According to the Uptime Institute, the vast majority of even the world’s most elite datacenters do not operate as designed/installed on day one. This webinar will cover, in case study form, some of the causes underlying poor performance, and how a proactive maintenance program can uncover and help avoid an impact on the availability of services.Read more >
Did you know that 93% of organizations that have a data center outage of more than ten days eventually go out of business? Threats of natural disasters, malicious acts, and operational failures are putting your business and reputation at risk. Join Dimension Data consulting experts to learn about how the lasting effects of recent IT disasters could have been minimized with proper planning and staff training.

As the choices of technical computing methods and data center technologies continue to evolve, management processes are being forced to evolve faster as data is re-used across multiple hardware and software platforms types.
In addition, regulatory requirements are now influencing data center strategy to cover increased control and governance as well as reduced cost and computing delivery on demand. Managing change within data centers is becoming so complex, that baselining of existing environments and dependencies for change processes can be almost impossible without focused management involvement.
Join this session with David Cuthbertson, CEO of Square Mile Systems, Infrastructure Visualisation and Data Centre Management Specialist, as he looks at practical methods and approaches to simplify IT systems complexity making it easier to meet existing and new IT management challenges.
