Data, Data Everywhere and Not a Chance to Think: Lessons…

The number of data-gathering sensors and systems in data centers has grown exponentially over the past decade, giving our industry much more information than we know what to do with. This data has the potential to make data centers operate in smarter, more efficient, more reliable ways, but harnessing that flood of data has been difficult because of its relentless volume and because of the scarcity of skilled people to make it actionable. In this presentation, Brian Hanking, a pioneer in data-driven data center analysis, will tackle one of the biggest sources of this data flood: backup power systems.
