What is next generation Data Center?

Throughout 2014, Anixter has been conducting an event focused on Data Centers called "Next Generation Data Center" (NGDC), which is aimed at exclusive groups of end users who are also owners, as well as Data Center managers.

NGDC is unlike any other event, as it promotes the active participation of the attendees, exchanging ideas and integration, instead of looking at each other as rivales in the market. Likewise, we also include renowned manufacturers with enough experience in Data Centers.

The groups are small so as to make it more personalized, and the format is relatively simple but with great impact for attendees. Thus we have:

  • Trends in IT and Data Centers: A focus on showing statistical data, facts and trenes in IT and data centers in the country where the event is held.
  • Discussion Forums: Case approach, deployed technologies and the results. The attendees express their points of view, and there are discussions about it. In fact, the topics covered are those that the attendees chose prior to the event.
  • Manufacturers lectures: the latest applied technology for data centers is presented here, and it includes live demonstrations.

Also, the event is enriched thanks to the participation of international consultants and experts, something that is very valuable for attendees, because on the one hand, they have direct access to manufacturers (and the technology). On the other hand, they can know who the people designing the Data Centers are, and lastly, they can hear what the experience has been like to some of the attendees who have deployed that technology.

“The purpose we are seeking is that end users can make informed decisions regarding the implementation of the technologies”, says Jose Leyva, Data Center Business Developer from Anixter for CALA.

The first editions of NGDC are already successfully being carried out, and those same editions will continue to be carried out in all the major cities of Latin America and the Caribbean.
