LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2012) - Eaton, Future Facilities and RF Code announced today that their seminar series on improving data center efficiency through Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) will come to Los Angeles. The seminar, titled The Data Center Capacity Challenge: Can DCIM Help?, will be held Thursday, September 20, 8 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.
Bruce Taylor, Vice President, Uptime Institute, and founder/executive producer of its annual Data Center Symposium, will moderate the seminar. In addition, Bryan Landry of Southern California Edison will give data center owners and operators an overview of Southern California utility incentives and other credits.
The interactive conference will feature live demonstrations of how state-of-the-art predictive thermal modeling can help IT and facility professionals measure current data center demands and anticipate future ones. Presenters will show how to create a virtual test facility that predicts and visualizes the outcome of power and cooling decisions before critical IT equipment is installed.
The seminar's end-user panel will provide guidance on using DCIM to optimize the configuration and layout of network servers, power distribution units and associated cooling systems to plan for future growth and avoid stranding power capacity.
"I look forward to participating in this event and driving discussion of ways to leverage DCIM solutions," said Bruce Taylor of Uptime Institute. "The seminar will highlight the benefits of using predictive thermal, cooling and power management to visualize and solve data center capacity problems before they arise."
Seminar topics will include:
- Using DCIM to optimize and protect data center capacity
- Leveraging business and use cases to select the right DCIM technology
- Reducing data center costs while managing growth
- Managing facilities efficiently
- Maximizing infrastructure lifespan
Other speakers include:
- Zane Alsabery, CEO, Alchemy Communications
- Mark Bramfitt, IT and Utilities Consultant
- Chris Gaskins, VP Product Development, RF Code
- Brent Goren, Data Center Consultant, Eaton Corporation
- Sherman Ikemoto, General Manager, Future Facilities, North America
