Gartner will hold its 27th Annual Data Center Conference on December 2-5 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The four-day Gartner conference is usually one of the best-attended events in the industry, and more than 2,000 attendees and 90 exhibitors are expected at this year's show.
The conference will feature keynotes and presentations by Gartner analysts including Tom Bittman, Paul McGuckin, Donna Scott and Carl Claunch. There's also a "Mastermind Panel: The Future of the Data Center" featuring Mark Thiele from VMWare and Mark Bramfitt of PG&E.
Here's a full description of the event:
Gartner analysts will analyze the risk and rewards in next-generation virtualization technologies - and share how to avoid creating new problems down the road - with the deepest coverage of virtualization we've ever had. Gartner analysts will also investigate emerging storage technologies designed to help data center executives manage, secure, backup and archive the burgeoning growth in data. Learn what the future holds for those running Unix, Linux, Windows and z/OS server environments as we explore new management and operations technologies, processes and organizational structures designed to optimize the environment while maintaining critical business service levels.
