What Is The Cloud Doing To Your Data Center?

Presented by

Owen Garrett, Director, Riverbed Technologies

About this talk

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.

The data center is ruled by two masters. Facilities control power, cooling, building systems and construction. IT is responsible for the equipment, software, process and service delivery to business units. The line between these two organizations has always been blurred and in these gray areas, cracks quickly become fissures when the data center is reconfigured, expanded, or relocated. The Green Data Center Alliance strives to be the central repository of information for myriad industries that design, build, operate and support data centers who wish to contain, control, and reduce power consumption inside the data center envelope.
