Is data center “colocation” or “ownership” the right way to go?Can reduced operating and energy costs make the difference? How do you get the best bang for your buck... if you do colo?   

Our event was 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 from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm.    
We discussed some of the most important questions facing data center owners and operators today, andwitnessed comprehensive analyses & advanced solutions to help address our needs.

The meeting was provided compliments of our sponsors and hosts with no cost to you for attendance.  You are welcome if you are part of the data center community or if you have an interest in the subject matter.
