If you’re seeking to determine your data center strategy or exploring your disaster recovery options, this is a must attend event.
Eden Prairie, MN (PRWEB) February 24, 2012
Business and IT executives seeking to explore data center services and solutions are invited and encouraged to attend a complimentary seminar on the topic of data center decisions on March 9th at the Westin Galleria in Edina, Minnesota.
The choice of whether to build your own data center or to lease space from a data center solutions provider is one of the most critical business decisions you can make for your organization. Considerations such as overall ROI, operational flexibility, future growth and virtualization all have to be taken into account in order to find the solution that best meets your needs.
VISI and Kraus Anderson Construction Company are co-sponsoring the seminar, entitled Data Center Decisions: Build Versus Buy. The seminar introduces the "Build vs. Buy" question and lends some insight into the risks and benefits of either decision. Topics include assessing growth, capacity, consolidation, risks, and benefits related to operating your own data center or relocating your equipment with a services provider.
The seminar’s featured speaker is Jeff Gilmer, a senior partner with Excipio Consulting. Gilmer has over 30 years of IT experience, and Excipio has completed hundreds of data center assessments for both public and private organizations ranging in size from 350 employees to over 100,000.
“If you’re seeking to determine your data center strategy or exploring your disaster recovery options, this is a must attend event,” said Gary Elfert, director of products and marketing at VISI. “You won’t want to miss hearing Jeff discuss some of the real life challenges his clients have experienced.”
The seminar includes a complimentary breakfast. The seminar is free, but pre-registration is required and can be completed at http://www.visi.com/events.
