The best half-day seminar you'll attend this year. You'll leave with a clear understanding of today's DCIM landscape and how to get started.
There’s enormous pressure to manage your IT infrastructure more dynamically than ever, with deeper energy awareness and absolute control. Top management is asking you to re-evaluate your traditional IT management approaches and look for new ways of being more responsive and more proactive in your Data Center. How will you achieve your business goals of increased availability, more effective resource management, capacity planning and the associated energy efficiency? Consider DCIM.
Is DCIM right for your data center?Today, there are over 200 vendors of products that loosely fit in the DCIM category. We are all painfully aware that there is a bit of a media frenzy regarding DCIM. Big promises and grand ideas. How do you make sense of it all? How do you wade through the wealth of information and products and get “the whole story?”
Server Technology, Uptime Institute, nlyte Software and RF Code have teamed up to help you separate DCIM truth from hype. Join us as we share our experience in providing DCIM and DCI- enhanced solutions to thousands of customers. Learn how we can put our experience to work for you.
A continental breakfast and a catered lunch will be served.
