 AFCOM NC Q2 MEETING – June 5, 2014

 AFCOM NC had a successful, well-attended Q2 event, “Extending the Life of Your Data Center”in Durham, NC in the newly renovated Triangle Club where members got to enjoy an afternoon of education, networking and fun with their peers and industry leaders. 

As increased power consumption and virtualization have changed the dynamics of the data center there are ways in which the life of the data center can be extended through higher efficiency equipment, optimized air flow, containment, chimneys, new equipment, and increased operating conditions.  Our Q2 program consisted of subject matter experts from EMC, Upsite Technologies, Xerox, Virtual Power Systems, Syska Hennessy and the RJ Kennedy Group who discussed the leading methods and approaches extending the life of traditional data center spaces.                                               

After the event, members and guests enjoyed drinks and appetizers at the outdoor club bar before heading to their seats to watch the Durham Bulls compete against the Pawtucket Red Sox.
