Every website you visit or application you use lives on a computer or a server some ware, more and more of those servers are housed in Data centers. Most companies have a data center, even if it's only a closet with a couple of servers. And most companies, including those that started out small, have watched as their data centers grew in size and complexity, consumed more electricity, threw off more heat, and required more cooling as they became vital hubs. Now a number of businesses are rethinking their data center strategies. Some need to provide more space for servers, while others want to consolidate so they can simplify systems management and increase usage rates with tactics such as grid computing and virtualization.
Business technology professionals who aren't tinkering with their data centers now will need to soon. More and more companies are realizing that running a mission critical data center is time consuming, expensive and not within the core competency of their business mission.
The Westover hills area of San Antonio is home to several enterprise class data centers belonging to several local, national and international companies. Come find out why San Antonio is such a great place for companies to house there mission critical data as well as some trends in the Data center industry.
