There are two opportunites to hear Schneider Electric speak
Monday 12/7/2015, 4:00 PM in Venetian G
Speaker: Victor Avelar, Director - Data Center Science Center
Title: Keeping up with IoT: PUE, energy, and micro data centers
About: Traditional data center efficiency metrics may be misleading, or worse, reaching a point of diminishing returns. Is it time for a more holistic view? We'll present research challenging traditional thinking around raising IT inlet temperatures as the next big efficiency improvement, and evaluate the associated reliability risk. We’ll share recommendations for data center operators to consider before raising temperatures and discuss how converged, edge computing micro data centers are likely responses to this energy challenge.

Speaker: Greg Johnson, Director - Data Center Software Solutions
Title: Making the connection between IT and OT
About: The growing trend toward higher density through visualization and cloud computing requires facilities and IT to be constantly aligned; however, alignment remains elusive. One big reason is a fundamental disconnect between buildings and data center management systems. Named a leader in the October 2015 Magic Quadrant Report for DCIM Tools, hear Schneider Electric discuss how DCIM is used as the tool to bridge the gap between facilities and IT.
