Data Center World: Cloud and Data Center Comments

Data Center World: Cloud and Data Center Comments

AFCOM’s Data Center World conference was held Oct 4-7, 2009 in Orlando, FL.

Dr. Zen Kishimoto from AltaTerra Research Network posted a nice set of updates to his blog: Zen and the Art of Data Center Greening. There is quite a bit of good information on data center details. Of particular note was the keynote speaker’s comments on Cloud Computing. Andy Parham, CEO of Bick Group referred to the 5 C’s that will change the data center market considerably forever (quoted from Zen’s blog).

Cloud plays a significant role in the transformation. And that data centers should be viewed for the value they bring to a business, not their technological parts.

You can see more of the details on Zen’s blog.
