SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Instor Solutions, Inc, RLE Technologies, and Upsite Technologies, today announced a complimentary event for data center operators at Digital Realty’s Santa Clara, Calif. facility. Titled Beyond Whitespace, the seminar will be held on April 27, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Attendees are invited to tour the data center at the conclusion of the event.
Effectively expanding or building out whitespace into an efficiently running data center requires the ability to be prepared for unexpected circumstances. After working in hundreds of data centers around the globe, Instor, RLE, and Upsite each bring a unique perspective and lessons learned from a multitude of examples and challenging scenarios.
Leading the discussion, Instor, an expert in building out data center whitespace, will outline the composition of full-suite environments, relationship between IT systems and physical assets, and how to understand expansions with attention to both current goals and future needs. RLE Technologies, a leader in mission critical leak detection and environmental monitoring solutions, will explore why current operations look to DCIM solutions, how monitoring whitespace makes a difference, and what the implementation of these solutions entails. To conclude, Upsite Technologies, an industry authority on data center airflow management, will examine the science of airflow and available best practices for immediately improving operational efficiency.
Mark Bramfitt, former designer and director of PG&E’s data center and IT program, will moderate Beyond Whitespace and present on energy trends and their impact on data center operations, how the industry has evolved over the last decade, and the role of Cloud adoption in data centers.
“The changing capacity required of a data center environment as well as a data center’s energy use together create one of the most difficult and complex operational landscapes to manage both efficiently and effectively,” said Mark Bramfitt, Utility and Information Technology Industry Strategic Engagement Consultant. “The three presentations at Beyond Whitespace will explore best practices pulled from hundreds of case studies from data centers across the country as well as offer attendees actionable advice for whitespace expansion, environmental monitoring, and airflow management. Instor, RLE, and Upsite present a holistic understanding of whitespace and the immediate improvements available to data center operators facing a wide variety of challenges.”
