i/o Keynote to Address Superior Performance and Value of Modular Data Center Deployments
PHOENIX, Ariz. – May 3, 2011 – i/o, the leading provider of digital energy technology, today announced that George Slessman, CEO of i/o, will deliver the keynote address at the 2011 Uptime Institute Symposium. This year’s conference, focusing on disruptive changes, volatile demand and rapidly evolving modular architectures, will be held May 9-12 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.
Mr. Slessman’s keynote address, “The Last Snowflake,” will discuss the era of the industrialized data center and examine the inability of traditional real estate centric data center facilities to keep pace with the aggregate energy demands and service level objectives of mass-produced IT infrastructure and cloud computing. Unlike uniquely designed “snowflake” data centers, modular data center deployments, through a standards-based architecture and manufactured components, harness economies of scope and scale to provide superior performance and exceptional value.
“The Last Snowflake,” is scheduled for Tuesday, May 10th at 4:30 p.m. PST.
i/o designs, engineers, and delivers digital energy technology for the world’s largest enterprises, governments, and service providers.
