"Increasing demand for computing and storage capacity drives the urgency to better assess IT needs, assets at hand and the infrastructure -- space, power and cooling -- to support it all," said Pfeiffer. "As businesses become more dependent on data centers, they are becoming more capital-intensive, energy-intensive and increasingly technical. The most adaptable, economically sustainable and best-managed data centers will be those where accurate, real-time and meaningful information about both IT and facilities is continuously available, analyzed and correlated for joint assessments of potential problems, improvement opportunities and options for more efficient utilization of space and power."

Mr. Pfeiffer will participate on a panel that will identify best practices for provisioning and efficiently managing servers, including real time performance monitoring, temperature control, airflow distribution, and use of air-side or water-side economizers. The panel will review efficiency strategies for small-to-medium sized IT operations. Members will also address the costs for optimizing datacenters, justifying the investment, and getting CFO buy-in; and provide guidance for optimizing datacenters for energy efficiency from the design process.
