Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Achieving Management and Operations Excellence

No matter how well designed and built your data center infrastructure may be, ultimately it is the day-to-day operations activities and management decisions where the success of your mission stands or falls. In fact, the leading cause of downtime is human error. To mitigate risks, achieve your business goals, and meet uptime requirements, it is critical to unify operating behaviors with the functionality of your infrastructure. These panelists will discuss how they have achieved M&O excellence across their global portfolios leveraging the Uptime Institute M&O Stamp of Approval.

    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 Recorded: May 18 2017 55 mins
    Todd Traver, VP, IT Optimization and Strategy & Andy Lawrence, VP Research, Data Center Technologies at 451 Research
    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.

  • 2014-2016 Survey Results: Can Corporate Sustainability save IT from itself? Recorded: Jun 16 2016 33 mins
    Julian Kudritzki
    In 2015, less than a tenth of enterprise IT stakeholders had confidence in Corporate Sustainability to affect IT efficiency and costs. One short year later, 2016 is a vastly different matter and the data suggests that the time of corporate sustainability in IT is here now: 70% of enterprise IT organizations actively participate in corporate sustainability efforts.

    Senior executives are increasingly tasking all departments to work together to reduce resource consumption in the name of sustainability. The stakes are undeniably high, as sustainability efforts can impact important financial factors such as stock price and capitalization.

    In this webinar, Uptime Institute COO, Julian Kudritzki will present new survey data, illustrating the sweeping changes facing enterprise IT and sustainability efforts, including:

    -A snapshot of the current state of relations between enterprise IT and Sustainability counterparts.
    -How will Corporate Sustainability shape technology adoption trends as it begins to exercise its influence in IT decision making?
    -The ineffectual metrics and "green" signifiers which are no longer credible responses to increased cost pressures and the business demands for transparency.
  • Avoid failures and delays on data center capital projects Recorded: May 24 2016 39 mins
    Keith Klesner, SVP North America – Uptime Institute
    Based on analysis of 200+ Tier Certification engagements, a majority of new data centers, even the world’s most sophisticated sites, will not operate as designed or installed on day one. But data center failures, delays, and cost overruns to fix problems are avoidable. Uptime Institute Tier Certification is a failsafe against a new data center that does not work. This webinar will explain how Uptime Institute’s Tier Certification process can ensure a project meets an owner’s business requirements, outline the common areas where projects fail, and offer advice for companies considering pursuing Tier Certification to ensure a smooth process.
