On June 22, 2009 I will be hosting a free webinar for Digital Realty Trust on Modular Data Center approaches. Its a topic I have some expertise on and quite a bit of passion around. So I hope to not embarrass myself too thoroughly. If you have interest in the future of where data center construction, application, support and maintenance is going this might be something worth attending. We will also touch on emerging technologies such as modular IT configuration and IT Containers and their where they might be of benefit.
As I mentioned its a free event and you can register for it here.
Digital actually has some very good taped webinars on a variety of Data Center topics you might find interesting. The like to their video library can be found at this link.
The official blurb on the talk follows:
Digital Realty Trust would like to invite you to join us for another in our series of informational webinars. The Industrialization of the Datacentersm has given birth to a variety of modular development methods. From PODs to containers, end users are overwhelmed by a number of options and are often unsure of the best method to use for their particular application.

In this webinar Digital Realty Trust will present the various modular alternatives that are available to today’s datacenter customers and the strengths and weaknesses of each. This presentation will also help provide attendees with a clear understanding of the potential uses for each modular approach and which datacenter requirements each is best designed to address.
This webinar will be presented by Michael Manos, Senior Vice President of Technical Services at Digital Realty Trust. Mr. Manos is a 16-year veteran in the technology industry and most recently was responsible for the global design, construction, and operations of all of Microsoft’s datacenter facilities.
