The data centre is under scrutiny. Business wants it to be faster and more responsive, to deploy new applications quickly in response to business needs and to plug the organisation into social media, all while reducing cost and carbon footprint.
What steps should you be taking to ensure your data centre meets these challenging requirements? And how many IT managers are already taking these steps?
Following our in-depth research into these key questions, IThound will be running the Data Centre Efficiency Technology Briefing at our central London offices on 23 September. As well as recapping the outcomes of our research, the event will focus on critical topics such as:
How much power is your data centre using and how will new regulations around carbon reduction affect your business?
Can your data centre cope with the increased pressure to reach customers faster and in different ways (e.g. social media)?
The dying art of capacity planning: how can reintroducing this skill help in the age of the virtualised data centre?
