  • Why Tier Certification Is Even More Meaningful in a Hybrid IT World Jan 25 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Keith Klesner, Senior Vice President, North America, Uptime Institute
    Data Centers are continuing to evolve and will remain at the core of digital infrastructure. Today’s global information economy depends on data centers like never before. Whether a data center is on premise, colocated or in the cloud, they are responsible for the entire online infrastructure of a company, and the data centers are crucial to business critical infrastructure. For more than 20 years, Uptime Institute has served as an independent advisory body to all stakeholders in the industry responsible for the performance and availability of IT systems. We’ve helped the world’s leading data center organizations design, build, maintain, and optimize their facilities, compute systems, and operations, while balancing costs, resources, performance, and efficiency in an ever changing technology landscape. Uptime has assisted hundreds of enterprises and service providers to ensure their data centers are ready to meet their business needs. Join us as we share our experiences and learnings for a hybrid IT world.

    Topics include:
    - The value of simplicity in data center design and construction for IT and facility operations
    - Concurrent maintainability as a “must have” as "live work or deferred maintenance" is no longer acceptable
    - Tier Certification as a risk management tool for project owners and data center services buyers

  • 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.
  • DCIM Market Overview and Procurement Strategies Recorded: May 3 2016 44 mins
    Matt Stansberry
    The pursuit of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) benefits leads, too often, in a procurement and implementation process take too long, the software costs too much and the tools often under-deliver. Often, organizations fail to define business requirements for DCIM and evaluate options in a holistic and consistent framework. This webinar can help provide insight into why those outcomes occur and how to avoid.

  • The opportunity cost of doing nothing Recorded: Mar 22 2016 22 mins
    Scott Killian, VP of Efficient IT Programs – Uptime Institute
    Efficient IT may not be at the top of your corporate management priority list—but it should be. Every day facilities waste money and resources needlessly, falling further and further behind when they could be racking up savings in the millions of dollars. People often mistake steady state for steady expense outlay. But “business as usual” is massively expensive due to rising operating costs, rising energy prices, and ongoing capital expenditures needed just to keep up with the growing demands of the business. All of these factors contribute to the opportunity cost of doing nothing. In this webinar, learn how to start saving millions in total expenses with negligible investment—today.
  • What you don't know will hurt you Recorded: Mar 17 2016 48 mins
    Keith Klesner, SVP North America – Uptime Institute
    In today’s environment of data center acquisition and IT infrastructure outsourcing, how do you know what you’re really getting, and if it’s worth what you’re paying? If your organization is selling or acquiring a facility, considering possible upgrades, or investigating an incident, you need an unbiased, expert evaluation. A Data Center Due Diligence Assessment (DCDDA) provides a thorough, under-the-hood look at the assets, facility systems, equipment, risks, gaps, and day-to-day operations and management practices of a site. In this webinar, learn about hidden risks in a range of scenarios and understand what knowledge you need to have when investing in business critical infrastructure.
  • Avoid wasting time and money procuring and implementing DCIM Recorded: Dec 11 2015 42 mins
    Matt Stansberry, Director of Content & Publications – Uptime Institute
    For the last 8 years, the data center industry has struggled to successfully adopt DCIM software. DCIM promises to drive out data center inefficiencies, to help operators build a credible model for capacity planning, and to tie together the IT and facilities management teams. Yet, the path to reaping those benefits could not be realized by simply purchasing a software product. As the messy work of implementation began, many IT organizations found that these tools would be more difficult to implement and more expensive than expected.

    The DCIM market is sprawling and varied, with a range of suppliers from longstanding equipment vendors to startup companies. The reported functionality and integration of those various tools is often subject to interpretation and does not always stand up to scrutiny. One company’s success with a tool does not translate to universal success. The procurement and implementation process take too long, the software costs too much and the tools often under-deliver. Many organizations are finding the need to purchase multiple commercial DCIM tools. This can prove to be a successful strategy for customers applying an incremental planned approach; or it can be a wasted effort and major embarrassment when a large investment does not meet expectations.

    This webinar discusses the current state of DCIM adoption, strategies for maximizing a return on a DCIM investment, and provide a high-level methodology for evaluating DCIM tools.

    Lee Kirby
    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.

Simple topology solutions and proven technologies can help to reduce both complexity and cost. Uptime Institute draws on experience consulting with hundreds of data center owners and operators to present examples of efficient, value-conscious design approaches. Learn simple (low complexity) and cost-effective (low cost) solutions that give you the best chance to achieve the business and performance objectives of your data center.
  • New Engine Generator Tier Certification Standards Explained Recorded: Apr 6 2015 48 mins
    Christopher Brown, Vice President, Global Standards & Global Tier Authority – Uptime Institute
    Engine generators are a mission-critical component for data centers, ensuring resilience, stability, and business continuity. In August 2012 the Tier Standard: Topology was updated, altering the way Uptime Institute adjudicates the engine generator suitability and capacity for Tier Certification. This change allowed manufacturers and designers a bit more flexibility than the ISO 8528-1 standard does by definition. Previously the Tier Certification capacities were tied only to the ISO standard. To clear up any confusion between the old and new standards, in this webinar we explain the current criteria and variables for engine generator ratings, outline the parameters for each Tier certification level, and discuss how to apply these standards to your facility and operations.
  • Data Center Commissioning: Early and Often Recorded: Dec 16 2014 54 mins
    Ryan Orr, Senior Consultant – Uptime Institute
    Ryan Orr, Uptime Institute Senior Consultant, discusses why data center commissioning is a relentless and continuous process that goes far beyond the last few days of construction prior to the facility being turned over to the owner. Commissioning is a process that begins as soon as the data center project is approved for conceptual design and progresses through the life-cycle phases creating a rigorous program that will reduce infant mortality rates, and ensures that the data center functions and operates as designed. Additionally, this presentation will highlight and provide emphasis on the importance of including the Operations team engrained in the commissioning process.
