~Worldwide series of Datacentre Infrastructure Education and Networking conferences to kick off in New York, March 28th, Hilton New York~

London, England February 17, 2006 - DatacenterDynamics, a leading global knowledge exchange for professionals involved in the design, construction and management of datacentres, has announced DatacenterDynamics New York, to take place on March 28th 2006 at the Hilton New York, Avenue of Americas.

DatacenterDynamics New York inaugurates this years’ series of 12 educational and networking conferences which will take place at major datacentre locations around the globe including Mumbai, Sydney, Singapore, Amsterdam, Chicago and London. DatacenterDynamics provides a global snapshot of the issues and technologies which affect datacentre professionals. The New York conference, anticipated to be their largest ever gathering of US datacentre professionals, will tackle issues such as improved dialogue between IT and facilities communities.

“As the datacentre industry looks set to be heading into a period of unprecedented growth, the need to mature and embrace standardisation and best practice dominates operational datacentre thinking.” Says George Rockett, Conference Director, DatacenterDynamics. “The New York event will primarily focus on facilities and engineering issues, for example, promoting enhanced commonalities and a common language between IT and facilities departments; as well as discussing other key concerns such as uninterrupted support of critical IT and cooling loads.”

An Infrastructure Exposition, running alongside the conference, will bring together many of the datacentre specific infrastructure vendors and services companies operating in North American and global markets. Delegates will have an opportunity to see first hand the technologies that will be shaping the industry over the next 6-12 months and discuss these with industry experts.

Now in its fifth year, DatacenterDynamics assists businesses to meet the management and operational challenges of 24/7 mission critical IT facilities. Since its inception, DatacenterDynamics events have been held in London, New York, Frankfurt, San Francisco, Chicago, Amsterdam and Hong Kong where they have successfully brought together the leading mechanical & electrical engineers, facilities executives, IT directors & integrators and industry specific vendors whose responsibilities include the uptime of their essential computing resources.

Within a comprehensive conference schedule, internationally acknowledged experts will share their insights and best practices to help increase network availability while driving operational efficiencies in the physical layer. In addition to keynote sessions, the conference program includes solution seminars with a number of interactive panel discussions hosted by leading thinkers. The NY2006 schedule will follow a double stream model and delegates will have a choice to move between two content streams in the morning, and two content streams in the afternoon. Each stream offers various perspectives on a topic area and this year will focus upon:

1. Maximizing IT and Facilities Dialogue: 2006 & beyond (Morning)
2. Bridging the ‘Power Gap' (Morning)
3. The modeling challenge for next-generation datacentres (Afternoon)
4. ‘Automating-out' Failure (Afternoon)

Highlights at the New York event will include keynote addresses from Don Beaty, chairman of The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) TC9.9 Committee, who will be discussing how delegates can make the most from improvements in processor and blade technology; and Stewart Hair, GSMO ITO Portfolio Management, EDS, who will show IT and facilities managers how to unravel the outsourcing minefield and enhance performance through improved service, agility, and technical capabilities. Attendees will also be able to discuss best-of-breed practices with leading industry suppliers including American Power Conversion (APC), GDCM, Leviton, KNURR, RITTAL, Wrightline, Syska Hennessy, EYP Mission Critical, Siemon and Eaton .

With topics ranging from DC power to the latest on cable management; high density (power and cooling) installations, and mission critical monitoring, the schedule aims to help data centre operators improve availability and manage their costs in 2006 and beyond. George Rockett concludes, “As one of the major activity hotspots of datacentre activity globally, New York will undoubtedly be at the forefront of growth and innovation in this market. If the industry is to fulfill its potential it needs to mature and reflect the diverse needs of all the communities that operate within it. This is reflected through the topicality of this year’s schedule which has been specifically tailored to debate these and all the important questions facing datacentre professionals.”
