Chief information officers, chief technology officers, IT managers and data center professionals tasked with taking on Big Data management will be attending the DatacenterDynamics Focus On seminar on April 22, 2014 at the Sheraton Reston Hotel in Reston, VA.

Big Data management requirements are forcing companies to assess existing data systems and practices and adopt new technologies and solutions. Companies are finding it necessary to reconfigure their data centers for an increasingly unified IT infrastructure that connects storage, servers and networking while effectively managing facility, cooling, and power.

Industry experts and peers will share how they have built up their infrastructure to meet the high demands of big data analysis. This includes integrating the latest innovations in processing, expanding storage capacity, and ensuring continuous uptime through implementing advanced power generation and cooling technologies.

Our agenda offers attendees a broad range of sessions on topics that are relevant to their roles and responsibilities. This FocusOn seminar is complemented by an opportunity to meet with solutions providers who will exhibit the latest in infrastructure products and services.

Over 200 End Users, Operators, and Executives are expected to attend this one day seminar that will include networking opportunities throughout the day. Reserve Your Seat Today.

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.
