Program Summary:  


Arm yourself with the knowledge to improve energy performance in Federal and Military data centers and research facilities without compromising reliability, voiding warranties, or increasing the risk of failure.



Facilities Managers, Information Technology Leaders, and Energy Experts will learn about:


-  The latest ASHRAE TC9.9 standards with regards to allowable and recommended temperature and humidity ranges.


-  The real impact on IT equipment failures from operating at higher temperatures (based on IT OEM actual data).  


- The increased potential for data centers WITHOUT any mechanical refrigeration (ie, no chillers, compressors, etc.)  


- Resource materials from the major IT and data center industry thought leaders.



Target Audiences:    


This seminar is designed for information technology data center managers and decision makers, other  facilities managers, contract specialists and energy and management professionals who want to better understand how to improve data center performance within their organizations.
