The Data Center World Global Conference kicked off on Tuesday, with a packed audience for the keynote session with industry veteran Scott Noteboom (now CEO of start-up LitBit.) Attendees gathered at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to network and attend sessions with a variety of facilities and data center management topics. We present photo highlights:
