If you’re looking for someone who is totaly connected in the field of data centers, look no further that Green Data center blogger Dave Ohara. I met Dave, who is a veteran of HP, Apple and Microsoft, last year at Gartner’s data center summit and learned a lot from him at a our first meeting. I was therefore very glad to run into him yesterday at the Structure conference.
I got some time with him today and asked Dave a few burning data center questions that have been on my mind.
Some of the ground Dave covers
- Why all of a sudden are companies first foray’s into data centers becoming hot news?
- The rise of the marketing and positioning of data centers
- What are some of the pitfalls of moving from the public cloud or co-los to your own data center (hint: huge learning curve)
- Your data center design should reflect your business model
Pau for now…
