    Rittal Activities at Technology Convergence Conference:

    Platinum Sponsored Lunch Session: Demystifying The Edge and Implementation Strategies for Success

    The next horizon for IT Data Centers is The Edge and Edge Computing. “Edge Computing is pushing the frontier of computing applications, data, and services away from centralized nodes to the logical extremes of a network“ -Wikipedia

    We know where we are heading, but what is required to get there?

    IT applications and hardware will continue to evolve, but where these products and services will be deployed is changing dramatically – by definition The Edge could be just about anywhere. Including deployment in spaces that may not have: 1.) Multiple layers of security and access control; 2.) Sufficient heat removal and climate control; or 3.) Reliable and stable power supply and distribution. In many cases – these spaces may not be optimal for deploying Edge Computing.

    In this session you will:

    • Understand how to successfuly navigate these new installation environments and conditions when moving to the The Edge.
    • Learn how to create a migration plan for critical infrastucture components required to support Edge deployments – including climate control, power distribution, and physical security.
    • Acquire a comprehensive overview of solutions available to insure a safe, stable and secure Edge installation.

    Join this session to insure you are at The Edge and ready to meet the demands of next generation data center infrastructure.

    Roundtable Discussion at TCC:  Maximizing Data Center Efficiency: Right-Sizing IT Infrastructures
    Facilitator: Herb Villa, Sr. IT Systems Consultant

    While data centers continue to evolve and become more complex, managers are faced with a multitude of challenges to efficiently manage data center infrastructure and reduce costs. According to the NRDC, data centers are one of the largest and fastest growing consumers of electricity in the US, consuming nearly 100 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity – enough to power all the households in a large city twice over. Enabling the right-sizing of IT infrastructure prevents wasted capital from underutilized equipment. Rittal will present a case study that illustrates the steps one manager took to redesign his company’s data center by implementing modular rack solutions and switching to energy efficient power and cooling systems. Learn how a little extra planning can help realize significant returns.
