The workshop is designed to be a meeting of the minds in a round table format. We will start with a challenging discussion of Resiliency versus Redundancy. By leveraging innovation and new technologies we can determine if increasing resiliency will increase "up time." We will be bringing industry experts to discuss innovation. Whether you are building, designing operating, or controlling a data center, we will provide you with the opportunity to add valuable input in a bench-to-bench exchange of ideas and share best practices with peers. Our goal is to equip you with the tools needed to make informed choices and decisions regarding design of the facility.

Rules of Engagement: Be prepared to be a part of developing new products for the industry. This is not a company specific forum. This is an industry bench to bench exchange of ideas.
