Shannon Poulin, vice president of Intel’s Datacenter and Connected Systems Group, will deliver the keynote address at Data Center World Spring 2013 in Orlando, September 29-October 1, 2013. Poulin will cover the near and long-term actions that Intel is driving to re-architect data center infrastructure with the goal of enabling IT managers to achieve new levels of agility and becoming more service-driven than every before.

“Data Centers are increasingly faced with supporting and delivering rapid service,” said Tom Roberts, president of AFCOM association and chairperson for Data Center World. “Intel is leading the industry in its efforts to deliver the scale and efficiency required across network, storage and servers to meet the demands of a services –oriented mobile world. We are excited that our attendees will gain insight on new approaches to delivering that service from an industry leader like Intel.”

“We have a vision for a software defined infrastructure that will help IT accelerate the delivery of new services, make it easier for business’s to enter new markets, and enable IT to get closer to their customers” said Shannon Poulin, vice president of marketing for Intel’s Datacenter and Connected Systems Group. “Our goal is to enable IT managers to orchestrate data center infrastructure so they can provision server, network and storage resources on demand. This is no easy task, but I look forward to sharing more information about how this can be achieved and the products Intel offers that will help data center managers successfully make this transition into a new era of rapid service delivery.”

Shannon Poulin is a vice president in the Datacenter and Connected Systems Group and General Manager of the Datacenter Marketing Group for Intel.
