Data Center Brainstorm


Join MeriTalk's Data Center Exchange for the fourth annual Data Center Brainstorm on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

Federal data centers are a liability, with rising costs and aging technology. Agencies must ensure their consolidation and modernization plans incorporate tomorrow’s solutions. But what works for one agency won’t necessarily work for another. Don’t go into the consolidation battle unarmed. Join more than 100 Federal data center mover and shakers to share best practices, proven solutions and lessons learned that will help you:

  • Understand how to define your agencies unique needs and circumstances
  • Learn what works and what doesn’t from others who have already made the transition
  • Increase security even as you migrate to commercial solutions
  • And ensure a seamless modernization for your agency
