Eaton to Present Solutions for Renovating Vintage Data Centers at DatacenterDynamics San Francisco Conference

July 10, 2013 … Eaton today announced participation in DatacenterDynamics (DCD) Converged, July 12 at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco. As a gold sponsor, Eaton will showcase integrated power management and monitoring solutions for virtualized data centers at booth number 21. At 2:10 p.m. in Hall 2, Bob Gaylord, Eaton’s western region director of sales will deliver a presentation on cost-effective upgrade strategies for increasing data center capacity, scalability and durability while lowering energy costs.

During his presentation, “Making the Most of your Investment – How Renovating and Modernizing Vintage Data Centers can Yield Significant Cost and Efficiency Savings,” Gaylord will discuss how utilizing best-of-breed power and cooling systems, instead of their packaged counterparts, can maximize capacity and minimize waste without restricting businesses to a limited set of deployment options – offering vendors a far more effective approach. He will also provide an overview of beneficial upgrades and best practices for successfully planning, implementing and testing renovations of aging data centers.

Immediately following Gaylord’s presentation at 2:50 p.m. in Hall 2, Eaton vice president and general manager of Distributed Power Solutions Hervé Tardy will join Dhesikan Ananchaperumal of CA Technologies to present on avoiding Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) implementation pitfalls.

This presentation will follow a recent announcement Eaton and CA Technologies released regarding an agreement of the two companies to deliver a robust data center monitoring, management and control solution in North America. The turnkey solution combines Eaton power management hardware and software with CA Technologies DCIM technology – empowering data center managers to increase operational efficiency, mitigate risk and enhance performance.

Additionally in booth number 21, Eaton experts will discuss Eaton’s airflow management solutions designed to store, cool, power, manage and secure mission-critical equipment. Attendees will also learn about Eaton’s energy-efficient Power Xpert™ 9395 uninterruptible power system which provides backup power and scalable battery runtimes in a small footprint for large data centers, healthcare applications and other critical systems.

With five halls offering information from industry-leading experts through individual sessions addressing power, DCIM, virtualization, cloud computing and the rise of the software-defined data center, DCD Converged San Francisco explores the latest trends and technologies in the data center space.
