Viridity Software To Join with Intel and Techdirt To Discuss the Future of Data Center Energy Productivity Management

Learn Why Current Energy Productivity Management Methodologies That Focus On How Power Is Delivered To the Data Center Are Missing the Mark and Why the Future will be Dedicated to Understanding Why

BURLINGTON, Mass., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ --

(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20091109/NE07420LOGO )

    When:         Wednesday, February 10, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time
                  (9:00 a.m. Pacific Time)

    Who:          Chris Peters, Manager, Intel IT
                  Mike Rowan, Founder and CTO, Viridity Software
                  Michael Masnick, CEO, Techdirt

    What:         Traditionally, power, cooling, and utilization have been
                  monitored and managed separately by three primary groups in
                  the organization - IT/IS management, facilities management
                  and the C-suite (i.e., CIO, CFO and CEO).  Each constituent
                  dedicated to maximizing the data center and its assets, in
                  addition to managing expense, but each coming at it from
                  separate corners with very little, if any, inter-
                  communications.  Because of this, even the most
                  sophisticated organizations are in a sense, running blind
                  and scared - wondering how much headroom is left and
                  whether or not they are living on borrowed time.

                  Consequently, the data center is often identified as a cause
                  for stagnation of growth, as it is believed that it will
                  shortly be out of power, cooling, or both.  Or perhaps
                  worse, significant equipment and application investments are
                  made that cannot be accommodated in the data center because
                  these resources are now in fact depleted. Or conversely,
                  building margin or headroom into the planning of new
                  resources, that optimization suffers.

                  Attendees of this presentation will learn:

              -  Why current energy productivity management methodologies
                 that focus on how power is delivered to the data center
                 are missing the mark; and why the future will be dedicated to
                 understanding why it is being consumed.
              -  Why data center management needs productivity solutions
                 that enable them to tie their applications to the specific
                 IT equipment that supports them (solutions that include
                 modeling, mapping, and business criticality analysis will be
                 highlighted).
              -  How proper energy productivity monitoring and management
                 can impact both operational and capital expenses.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
