— Hear how Packet manages the cloud and edge and about data center management best practices —
SOMERSET, N.J. (November 13, 2017) — Raritan® — a brand of Legrand, and a leading provider of intelligent data center management and rack power distribution solutions — today announced a data center management webinar that will look into what it takes to manage IT infrastructures at the edge. Packet, a leading cloud provider for developers, will share how it manages its distributed infrastructures and the importance and benefits of telemetry and remote out-of-band network controls and tools.
Businesses are benefiting from processing and delivering data at the edge — closer to where the user needs it. As a result, the modern data center is becoming a lot more distributed — creating a hybrid landscape of traditional data centers, remote locations, and co-locations. The new emerging digital outposts at the edge are creating new challenges — including data utilization growth, increased reliance on data center systems, and new requirements around uptime and management.
How to overcome these challenges at the edge, while sustaining capacity and operational efficiency, will be addressed by Bill Kleyman, Data Center Knowledge contributor, and Adam Rothschild, Packet’s Senior Vice President of Network and Datacenter Infrastructure. Adam is responsible for all facets of Packet’s next-generation infrastructure strategy and engineering. Also participating in the webinar will be Rick Kenney, Vice President of Engineering at Myriad Supply, and Brian Beckwith, Raritan’s Power Subject Matter Expert.
On Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017, from 2 to 3 pm (EST) join the discussion on:
