West Chester, Ohio – Data Center World, the premier industry conference and expo for the data center industry, and Data Center Knowledge, the industry’s leading online source for news and analysis about the data center industry, jointly announced today a new collaborative effort.
Data Center Knowledge will assist Data Center World in developing the most up-to-date educational program available during a critical period of transformative change within the industry. One such area of change is the convergence of the traditional enterprise data center with third-party data centers and cloud providers – a topic where Data Center Knowledge has deep expertise. This trend toward the hybrid data center is one of the many strategic changes requiring today’s data center professional to learn new skills.
Under the effort, Data Center Knowledge’s editorial team is developing a Trends Track for the upcoming Data Center World Orlando conference.
“This year’s Data Center World program will be better than ever with the help of the editorial staff at Data Center Knowledge,” said AFCOM President Tom Roberts. “By adding the collective experience of Yevgeniy Sverdlik, Editor in Chief, Rich Miller, Editor At Large, and Jason Verge, Industry Analyst, to help build the program, we are able to harness the knowledge of the industry’s leading news source to ensure our attendees are presented the most important and relevant trends within the data center industry today.”
Yevgeniy, Rich and Jason will work collaboratively with Tom to develop the Trends Track for the upcoming conference using their expertise to set specific session direction, bring in new speakers to the program and help moderate and facilitate conversations at the conference about the future of the industry. Topics will include utilizing managed services, the Open Compute Project, software defined data centers, the next-generation NOC, Internet governance and globalization, Big Data and power system innovations.
With Data Center Knowledge on board, attendees to the upcoming Data Center World Orlando conference will continue to receive the industry’s best real-world education available today. The enhancement of the Trends Track adds to an already strong program that will feature more education and networking hours, the best rated sessions and speakers from the previous Data Center World Global event and an entirely new track focused on practical managerial and leadership skills for today’s data center professional.
