Balancing Cost Reductions and Maintaining Service Levels Key Issues for NYC Data Center Owners and Operators

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 6, 2013) - A survey conducted amongst delegates registered to attend the 10th anniversary DatacenterDynamics Converged Conference on the 12th of March identifies that 85% of respondents feel that they are expected to deal with rapidly declining data center budgets whilst at the same time making sure there are no compromises in terms of service quality. Full results from the survey will be given at the event and discussed during a panel session chaired by Nicola Hayes, Managing Director of DCD Intelligence and including Barry Novick, Global Data Center Manager, Blackrock inc, Robert J Healy, Global Data Centers, Bank of America and Charles Hoop, Director, UBS.

The event, the premier data center conference on the New York calendar, examines factors impacting the tactical and operational management of facilities in the wake of natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, including issues in disaster management and the continued squeeze on CAPEX and OPEX.

According to Stephen Worn, CTO of DatacenterDynamics, "This year, it was more important than ever that we produced a programme of content aimed at addressing the real issues that New York Data Center operators are facing, from power to disaster recovery and of course the balance between risk and cost. Our line-up of speakers includes experts in each of these areas and delegates will be given very real solutions to the problems they face on a day-to-day basis."

The conference includes 6 halls of individual sessions offering up-to-date information from leading industry experts on Power, DCIM, Cloud Provisioning and operational efficiencies. Additionally this year, there is an emphasis on peer-led discussion panels and roundtables intended to generate ideas and share solutions. Panel sessions include, 'Managing Risk,' 'Mission Criticality and Critical Incident Response' and 'Making the Data Center Talk - DCIM Evolution and Implementation.'
