The term “Data Center” has become ubiquitous when discussing the general direction of delivering access and applications to technology users. The shift from a client-centric approach to a core or central system is now upon us. Components such as centralized storage, virtualized servers, powerful networks and cloud-based solutions are consistently being offered as answers to the challenges experienced by K-12 IT departments. This non-stop flow of information has created a certain amount of confusion about what is appropriate, what fits together and what is worth the investment.

CBE Technologies will present a “Data Center” primer, focusing on relevant technologies, the vast ecosystem of supporting solutions and the components that help you build a successful system. CBE will also present case studies of recent projects to demonstrate the critical decision-making required and milestone attainment suggested to successfully design, implement and manage a Data Center appropriate for your environment. 

IT managers will come away with an understanding of how data center technologies can improve access, increase efficiency, and allow manageability of the systems they support.
