Event Details: 

 

As media operations evolve into IT facilities, migrating to data centers and the cloud has become common. Have you ever wondered what the inside of a data center looks like? How do you select a data center and plan the migration?

Take a sneak peak inside the newly erected RagingWire VA4 Data Center (owned by NTT) within their famous 78-acre Ashburn "Data Center Alley".  The new building contains 140,000 sq feet of value space over four 35,000 sq ft, 8-megawatt private vaults.  The new data center leverages modular construction techniques and robust supply chain management to deliver superior, large-scale data centers at a lower cost and shorter cycle time.  This is the perfect space for hyperscale cloud companies and large enterprises.

It's an extremely rare opportunity to be allowed into a data center of this size. RagingWire is giving us this chance as they finish building the facility just before they turn it over to their tenant and security locks it down.

This event has very limited capacity and is being offered to SMPTE Members only at this time. Non-members may sign up for the waiting list in case the event does not sell out.

Food and refreshements will be served, courtesy of RagingWire.
