Expert Data Center Education & Training In NYC

Just a quick reminder for all our readers: PTS’ Data Center Education Series is coming to midtown NYC from September 15-17.

UPDATE 08/20/2009: The PTS Data Center Education Series for September 15-17 has been relocated to our headquarters in Franklin Lakes, NJ.

The three (3) day class provides students with comprehensive, vendor-neutral, module based training that covers the most pertinent topics in the data center industry, tying in case studies and real world situations to provide the knowledge you need to understand, operate, manage, and improve your data center. The training includes all course materials in addition to a continental breakfast and lunch each day. (Best of all, if you attend with other colleagues from work, you all receive a 10% discount.)

While I’m at it, I’d also like to take a moment to thank everyone who’s joined our Computer Room Design Group on LinkedIn. Your support and participation has helped the group get off to a great start, with over 300 data center and IT pros joining in the first month alone!

Here’s a quick snapshot of some of the recent discussions that have been posted:

  • Will the cloud kill the data center?
  • Hot & Cold Aisle Containment. How do you implement it when you have different cabs, heights and gaps?
  • Who really cares most about Enterprise Data Center Efficiency? CIO? CFO? IT?
  • TIA standard TIA-942: Tier – 2 takes 3- 6 months to implement, Tier – 3 takes 15 – 20 months to implement. Is this because of record keeping to demonstrate uptime?

Everyone is welcome to join! It’s a great opportunity to share news, ask questions, offer advice, and connect with your peers. Check it out at
