All IT organizations today are being asked to do more with less, reductions in budgets or perhaps curtailing Data Center expansion projects altogether. Faced with the harsh realities of a difficult economic climate, Data Center managers will need to focus on creating the most efficient operating environments possible in order to extend the life of existing Data Centers. These efficiencies can be found in a number of areas - but the two most critical needs in this are (1) implementing Data Center Best Practices (2) having a metric to gauge just how efficient the Data Center is, and to quantify all of the improvements in efficiencies created when Best Practices are implemented. They will soon be mandated in Your Future Data Center.
Data Center Best Practices implemented properly will save energy. They will improve the Greening in Your Data Center, and are guaranteed to improve the ROI in Your Data Center. Last but not least, Best Practices in Your Data Center will make The President of the United States more satisfied with Your Data Center because of your continuing support for his White House Environmental Team.
I will introduce well tested Best Practices that improve performance in Your Data Center. The cost of cooling can be reduced by as much as 30% through implementation and management of Data Center Best Practices. I have seen it work. I have tracked Best Practices that will allow you to be more successful in meeting your energy conservation budget and ROI goals.

Modern trends, such as Internet of Everything (IoE), are rapidly changing the way we work and live, which makes it difficult for traditional datacenters to cope with the pace and adjust to Big Data paradigms – it is time for hyperconverged infrastructure.
Hyperconverged infrastructure is changing the way datacenters are deployed by providing highly scalable, performant and easy to manage infrastructure that, unlike traditional 3-tier architectures, efficiently addresses and handles Big Data.
Do you ever wonder: How do modern monitoring solutions address these new trends and provide visibility into hyperconverged infrastructure? How do they connect this information with applications running on it?
Join us to learn more about modern monitoring approaches for hyperconverged infrastructure with use cases for both:
- On-premise monitoring platform, like Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM)
Tip: You will also learn how you can connect different management packs together
- Cloud based monitoring platform, like Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS)
Tip: You will also learn about log and event analytics possibilities for hyperconverged infrastructure, such as Nutanix
Do you have VMware? How about AWS? Do you want to migrate to Microsoft Azure and modernize your IT investments? Are you looking for a true PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) offering to replicate on-premises virtual and physical machines to Azure for cost effective migration or disaster recovery?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions on behalf of your customers, then join us in this session and learn how Operations Management Suite (OMS) Site Recovery enables a low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) solution for your customer’s heterogeneous IT environments.
You may have virtualized infrastructure on Hyper-V or VMware, or you may still run physical servers, but ASR can seamlessly enable cost-effective replication, migration and recovery to Azure.
Join this webcast to learn how to:
•Deploy replication, recovery, and migration solutions for your heterogeneous environments
•Help lower your TCO through Azure Site Recovery
•Enable seamless migration to and recovery in Azure through Site Recovery
