In this blog post, we’re focusing on the invited Symposium Keynote speakers – three individuals who are responsible for delivering data center services around the globe.
Twitter’s data center evolution
Anoop Mavath, Director, Global Data Center Services at Twitter explains how his company has deployed data center infrastructure to keep pace with the constraints and changing demands of managing one of the most dynamic workloads on the Web. Mavath will discuss design specifications, financing models, vendor management, dynamic growth, geographic presence, energy efficiency and his company’s green programs.
The cloud will change the data center … Forever
Christian Belady, General Manager of Data Center Services at Microsoft will present on how the latest trends in cloud computing may impact your data centers: Cloud-optimized servers, fail-in-place and self-healing IT, and a shift to OpEx-driven accounting. Belady will also share his organization’s experience, building out the cloud infrastructure to support over 200 cloud services to over a billion customers.
Building Russia’s cloud computing platform
Rostelecom is Russia’s largest national telecommunications operator with presence in all Russian regions. The organization launched a project in 2011 to develop a national cloud computing platform. Rostelecom started building its main data center in Moscow, which will become the largest in Russia, around 37 megawatts and 40,000 square meters. The organization will build smaller, 3MW data centers in regional locations. The success of any data center build out is defined by how efficient the collaboration is between various project teams. Rostelecom’s Senior Project Director Alexander Martynyuk will discuss how his organization is meeting priorities, deadlines and budget on this complex project.
