Jon knows as well as you do that data centers are rarely built on a greenfield site and that most evolve over the years in response to company needs and technology limitations.

He will share some wisdom, based on Register research of IT pros, about how people are coping with this and still evolving their data centers into flexible and dynamic environments.

Jon’s keynote speech will begin by considering today’s data centers in all their diversity. He'll then dive into techniques for balancing conflicting requirements, while delivering business flexibility and effective technology deployments.

He’ll also explore a number of recent improvements in technology, architecture and management, such as virtualization and SOA, and how these techniques can offer the potential of a more dynamic approach to systems deployment and operations.

Jon Collins' keynote considers data centers in the light of today’s needs and capabilities, offers a starting point in the form of setting a rationale for the agile data center, and suggesting an evolutionary approach to achieving its benefits.
