Cloud Computing and Energy Efficient Data Center
UCGEC Green IT Series Seminars
Attend Cloud Computing and Green Data Center Seminar to learn from leading experts about the latest cloud computing innovations, best practices and increased energy efficiency. UCGEC connected with several IT leaders in China last year and we were asked to consult and help plan the management of data center and cloud platforms. We want to share information with Cloud computing experts. We can work together to take this big opportunity. In this seminar series we will give you information about cloud computing and green data center strategy, automation, virtualization, security and management with thought-provoking speakers, in-depth case studies and a vibrant case study from industry experts. It can help you set your strategy and come away with an actionable plan for your business in both US and China. In this seminar we'll share knowledge about a real Green Data Center case in China; you may share your expertise and learn what the Chinese company need is. This seminar will help you to understand the trends and contexts of the cloud computing and green data centers in China, and to reach out to the Chinese companies to develop collaborative projects.
