i/o Data Centers today announced that its founder and President Anthony Wanger will present at the Uptime Institute Research Symposium 2009: LEAN, CLEAN & GREEN, April 13-16 in New York. i/o Data Centers specializes in data center outsourcing and Phoenix colocation services to enterprises throughout the world.
Wanger will serve on a roundtable entitled "Is Outsourcing, Cloud Computing or Colocation the Lever to Efficiency?" Topics to be discussed include: How and when an IT organization begins seriously investigating outsourcing some or all of its data center needs? What are the considerations that need to be addressed in examining software as a service, cloud computing or other approaches? How do smart IT operators negotiate fair outsourcing contracts that get them the level of service, uptime availability and (especially now) energy efficiency consciousness that they require? What impact will the current recession have on these decisions?
In addition, Wanger will serve on a panel entitled: "Outsourcing and Colocation Decision Making Process." This panel will provide a perspective on the various trends and developments that will shape the outsourcing and colocation sector in the years to come. Several converging trends in technology are having a profound impact on how organizations operate their IT and business processes.
Keynote speakers at the conference include Pulitzer Prize-Winning New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, Google's Green Energy Czar, Bill Weihl and former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Energy, Christine Ervin.
