CFRT Meetings: Upcoming Events

The Next Generation Data Center
August 22, 2013
PLEASE NOTE: This event has reached Maximum capacity and registration is now closed. This is an RSVP Only Event.

You are personally invited to attend CFRT Technology Group's upcoming meeting on August 22, 2013 hosted by Oracle at their Pleasanton Facility.

You've heard the buzz about Software Defined Data Center (SDD). Can SDD provide the path to the Next Generation Data Center? Gain insight from Krish Sivakumar, Manager, Product Management at Cisco Systems and learn how Software Defined Data Centers is shaping the compute, network, storage and virtualization infrastructure today and for some time to come, and how it will affect our Data Center Facilities.

Following the presentation, participate in an interactive moderated roundtable discussion focusing on IT and Facilities Convergence. Many organizations today still lack the communication and collaboration between the respective teams. While no one Data Center and IT Enterprise resemble another identically, some companies decided to tackle the performance and financial inefficiencies of such a schism head-on.

Listen to end-users from Oracle, Kaiser Permanente, and Box share their wins and lessons learned about their IT Facilities projects. Afterwards, enjoy CFRT networking with your friends and lunch compliments of Mirapath, Inc. and Glumac.

Our event will be held at Oracle's Building 5805 on Owens Drive in Pleasanton just south of 580 and east of 680 right next to the Pleasanton BART station. If you plan to take BART, please get off the Dublin Pleasanton Exit and go towards Pleasanton Ramp.

Seats are Limited! Please contact me at mcerruti@cfroundtable.org to RSVP now. I can also be reached at (510) 709-7411.

Many thanks to Mukesh Khattar, Troy Tazbaz & Tim Roche of Oracle for their continued support and for hosting the upcoming CFRT Meeting.

We look forward to seeing you in Pleasanton on August 22, 2013!

Best regards,

Maricel Cerruti
