April 22, 2005 Sixth Meeting
Hosted by Johnson Controls, Inc. at the Crowne Plaza San Francisco Airport
The 6th quarterly HDDC Meeting will take place on April 22, 2005 between 8:30 a.m. and noon. Our host is Johnson Controls, Inc. Please join us to hear how advanced controls technologies can be harnessed to provide better environmental outcomes in High density data centers. Our host's premise is that the promise of high density computing - flexibility, scalability, and efficiency - can only be realized if the environment is effectively monitored, analyzed and optimized.

Johnson Controls will discuss how the combination of their existing data collection and analysistechnologies, when coupled with their new wireless backbone, offers a new and cost-effective solution to the dilemma of how to make use of the massive amounts of information that a high density data center typically generates.
