Gartner Concludes Another Great Data Center Conference

Posted by David Oldenbuttel on December 27, 2011

The recent Gartner Data Center Conference in Las Vegas was a great success with over 2,000 people in attendance from companies across a wide variety of industries.

While the keynote presentations and smaller breakout sessions covered a wide variety of topics, there was clearly a theme and focus around a modular and integrated approach to data center infrastructure management. Considerations on various aspects of technology in the data center can no longer be considered independent from one another.

My colleague, David Hall, Enterprise Solutions manager, had the opportunity to present at one of the sessions and his presentation focused on how a company must take into consideration the design and deployment aspects of their physical infrastructure in a modular data center environment. The audience also had a couple of great follow up questions for David on how their decisions made today may impact their required growth and changes in the future.

In case you couldn’t be there, we shot a few brief videos to give you an idea of what David covered in his presentation in addition to what we were showing at our booth in the Solutions Showcase. Another video included our exhibition with our partners in the IBMexhibit. It’s not quite like being in Vegas, but these videos can provide a hint at some of the topics. Enjoy!

David Hall, Enterprise solutions manager, talks about on the challenges faced by data center organizations as they work to keep pace with a changing business environment.

Matt Baldassano, Technical Sales manager, discusses what CommScope is displaying at both the Partner Pavilion and the IBM’s Portable Modular Data Center (PMDC).

IBM’s Portable Modular Data Center (PMDC) system is explained by Brian Canney, Offering Development Executive-PMDC, IBM.
