DCD Converged Washington DC 2013 was another fantastic event. Thank you to all those who attended as well as our sponsors for making it all possible. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2014.

These days, despite the recent condemnation of data centers in the press, there is more and more demand for storage capacity, performance, connectivity and security. With BYOD, big data, and cloud becoming the norm in everyday life, where the masses realise it or not, data centers are under ever-increasing pressure to provide seamless services. On the other hand, budgets rarely support the IT and infrastructure needs to deliver, meaning that pressure is mounting on the incredible talent running the world these days: CIOs, CTOs, systems engineers, data center managers and operators, cloud and network architects…

No matter what your role in this complex ecosystem, you will undoubtedly benefit from and be able to contribute to this year’s DCD Converged Washington DC event.

Renovating ageing infrastructure, building new facilities, integrating the old and the new, moving beyond virtualised servers, migration and consolidation, managing increased density, security and cloud computing, as well as financing and location decisions… these are the headline topics that will be covered.

The Washington DC area is a different playground, something Datacenter Dynamics is fully aware of and reflects at this unique event.

Join in our interactive panel discussions and Q&A sessions, network with peers and share your own experiences, knowledge and expertise.

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. Silver members only have access to those from the events they have actually attended, whilst Gold members have access to presentation materials from all our events around the world.
