Start Time: 10/25/2017 2:15:00 PM
End Time: 10/25/2017 3:15:00 PM
This session will offer real-world examples that demonstrate how changes in IT equipment, cloud computing, density, and rack space must be met with accurate changes in cooling, power and space by the facility management. Attendees will review case studies highlighting what can go wrong when IT and data center facility management do not work together, learn which areas of IT actually do--and do not--impact the data center, and what should be included in a cloud strategy.
1. Identify who needs to be involved to understand the effects of change in the facility
2. Understand what information is needed by data center facility management
3. Learn how to prepare for the challenges and interdependencies both sides face
4. Review best practices to communicate risks and develop efficient plans
