Cloud hosting solutions provide the flexibility that businesses need to grow. But the cloud is a sometimes mysterious force that isn’t entirely understood in the tech community – partially because it has lacked serious definition until recently.
Those seeking to better understand the cloud should consider attending the Data Center Efficiency Summit on Oct. 14, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m in San Jose.
The Data Center Efficiency Summit is the result of a partnership between the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, the California Energy Commission and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. Some of its sponsors are Honeywell (News - Alert), Berkeley Lab, the State of California Energy Commission and Pacific Gas and Electric Company.
The one day event is a forum focused on best practices, emerging technologies and applications that reduce data center operating costs. The methods featured significantly increase efficiencies for both legacy and new construction.
And the Summit won’t be smoke and mirrors. Todd Benjamin (News - Alert), the vice president of enterprise hosting for Hostway, will be in attendance to make a case for cloud hosting.
Presenters will display case studies on efficiency-boosting projects accompanied by actual results and ROIs. The featured projects cover both IT optimization options and facilities related energy efficiency improvements that increase data center efficiencies.
A representative from Hostway (News - Alert) will be making a case for cloud hosting in a presentation entitled, “Into the Cloud: Efficiency Beyond Virtualization.” Optimal service and deployment models, the challenges facing database administration and DBA resource management procedures will all make an appearance. Hostway’s presenter will show how the cloud can be utilized in a variety of ways to streamline processes and increase efficiency.
If you are interested in attending the Data Center Efficiency Summit, please contact Bob Hines of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
