DatacenterDynamics Converged Toronto is THE data center industry event in Ontario.  Join us to learn the latest strategies and best practices from leading end users and cloud-scale data center operators at the region’s must-attend event.

Toronto continues to be a major market for the data center industry, and has much to recommend it: a relatively cool climate, low cost of energy with abundant hydropower and natural gas, an educated workforce, and a relatively low disaster risk profile.  Toronto also has the highest rate of growth among established markets for server virtualisation and storage upgrades, and new telecom and financial data centers coming online.  There are many reasons why Toronto plays such a critical role in North America, and at this year’s Converged Toronto, we’ll examine them in depth.

Despite the positives, the Toronto region does present some challenges, including a substantial and ageing asset base, some of which needs renewing, refitting, and replacing.  There is also a cloud and security skills gap.  How do you balance the opportunities with the challenges?

This year we’ll present an agenda jam-packed with case studies from end users and industry luminaries, lively panel discussions, and great keynote speakers. We’ll focus on such key topics as server and user virtualisation; cloud infrastructure architectures and outsourcing; modular DBO and retrofit upgrade options; DCIM and IT automation and capacity planning; software defined networking, upgrade networking and routing, high-frequency trading, content delivery networks; big data and storage for massive content creation in media and finance.  We’re very excited about DCD Converged Toronto 2013 and look forward to seeing you there!

Viewing presentations after a DatacenterDynamics conference

Registered attendees of an event are able to access the majority of the material presented after an event. We are introducing a new system - PresentationPLAYBACK - which enables you to listen to a full sound recording of the session along with the PowerPoint and any associated movies in a single file.

You will therefore need to have a recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer in order to view them (Google Chrome Users need not worry about this, as it's pre-built-in). Although we now endeavour to record all presentations in this format, occasionally - for technical reasons beyond our control - it is not possible to fully capture all sessions; in such cases you will only be able to view a PDF.

To access PresentationPLAYBACK you must be signed into your account. Click on the MyDCD button on the top navigation panel which will take you to your personal homepage - on the right hand column you will find an area headed 'My Presentations'. Here are listed the conferences you have access to (see access and restrictions below). The links will take you to the programme page of that conference, and by clicking on a session you will be taken to the individual conference asset where you will find the feature. Alternatively you can navigate to the conference site you wish and acess the file directly from there - remember you must be signed in.

DatacenterDynamics Conference sessions with this feature available will display the PresentationPLAYBACK icon:

The player is simple to use. Click on the play button for automatic playback, or advance through the slides.

Access and restrictions

The conference presentations you can view depend on your membership level.
