Tier1 Research, the analyst firm that tracks the hosting and colocation market, will hold its Datacenter Transformation Summit – Silicon Valley (DTSSV) on December 8 at the Santa Clara Marriott in Santa Clara, Calif.
Tier1 Research's summit series brings together enterprise IT executives with some of the largest hosting and colocation providers in the market today. The Silicon Valley event will address reducing capital expenditures, meeting the needs of business stakeholders and sharpening the RFP process to ensure that the most value is extracted from IT investments. DTSSV has been structured to provide IT decision-makers with a full range of data center information, including the type of data centers that are best-suited for their business, the build vs. lease decision, the brewing storm around data center regulation and the future of data center architecture.
"In bringing our Datacenter Transformation Summit to the West Coast, we were determined to provide enterprise IT executives with the invaluable resources that they would need to make more informed decisions around their infrastructure management," said Daniel Golding, Vice President and Research Director of Tier1 Research and Conference Chair. "Given the current economic climate, we cannot stress to enterprise IT executives enough the importance of ensuring that their infrastructure is not only reliable, but that it also has minimal impact on their company."

- Mark Waddington, president of Quality Technology Services
- John Sheputis, CEO of Fortune Data Centers
- Billie Haggard, VP, Data Centers at CoreSite
- James Kennedy, senior manager of facilities, RagingWire
