We’re hanging out at Uptime Symposium in Santa Clara, CA, and enjoying our time chatting with attendees and checking out cool technologies.  We’re excited that 451 has gathered together its top analysts and big-name IT vendors, including our partners, IBM and CA Technologies.  Our own VP of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships, Richard Jenkins, will be speaking with IBM’s Brent Kiger on how IBM has seen ROI with the deployment of our asset management and environmental monitoring solutions this Wednesday at 12pm. 

The hot topic at Uptime 2013 that’s finding its way into seemingly every presentation and conversation is Data Center Infrastructure Management, or DCIM.  DCIM optimizes datacenters by implementing operational efficiency, ensuring compliant audits, and meeting immediate capacity needs. The demand for DCIM tools is growing rapidly as both the Big Data and Mobile markets expand.   Datacenters are producing more data and consuming more power than ever before, which is generating the latest buzz that DCIM is no longer “nice to have,” but now “essential for the control and automation of big data.”  As a top DCIM vendor, naturally we are thrilled to be the hot commodity at Uptime.

We’re also thrilled to see Uptime going mobile with their Smartphone App and social with their #Uptime13 hashtag.  We’ve really enjoyed reading tweets from vendors and attendees, particularly @CA_DCIM, @ioDatacenters, @rasciert, and @AndyLawrence451.  Since #Uptime13 and #DCIM are trending on Twitter, we’ve decided to share some of the DCIM stats we’ve learned from 451 and Uptime, along with a few RF Code stats from 2013.  They’re all 140 characters or less and ready for you to tweet to your followers with the #Uptime13 and #DCIM hashtag.  For more information on DCIM and RF Code, stop by booth #416 and chat with our team!  If you’re not at Uptime, contact us to learn more about DCIM!
