Vice President of Technology, Jim Martin to Discuss the Changing Role of the Data Center
NORTHBROOK, IL, September 20, 2016 – INOC, a 24×7 Network Operations Center (NOC) and global provider of technology infrastructure monitoring, reporting and support services, today announces that its Vice President of Technology, Jim Martin, has been selected to speak at Capacity North America, taking place at the Hyatt Regency Toronto October 5-6, 2016. Capacity North America brings together telecommunication stakeholders, including wholesale carriers, cloud providers, and content distributors and providers with the sole purpose of joint collaboration to ultimately deliver and improve on services meeting the demands of future customers.
Jim will participate in the fireside chat, “The Changing Role of the Data Center: Keeping Up with Tomorrow’s Demands,” taking place Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at 3:30 p.m. The session will explore the evolving data center landscape, what facilities need to deliver to stay ahead, and how to overcome cost, voice services support, and environmental challenges. Jim will discuss what future data centers will look like both technically and operationally, focusing on what providers should do now to prepare for the future to support data center infrastructure, virtualization and cloud services.
“While this discussion will give us a glance into the future data center, the time to begin preparation and implementation for this next evolution is now,” says Jim. “Apart from responding to rapidly growing bandwidth demands, data centers must address rapid infrastructure changes, including facilities changes, to satisfy customer requirements for time-to-market. The skill sets required to support new data center technologies, such as SDN and NFV, are quite different and present a substantial challenge for companies that want to take advantage of advances such as the programmable network.”
INOC combines state-of-the-art software technology, highly resilient and redundant NOC infrastructure, proven processes and expert technical staff to improve uptime, availability and performance of customer networks, applications and servers.
