Please join the CFRT on Friday, April 15, 2011 hosted by Pelio & Associates and IBM . Gain insight on the Portable Modular Data Center (PMDC) and everything you ever wanted to know about Containerized Data Centers. Listen to Case Studies and comparisons to Alternative Modular Designs, POds, Skids, and Hands on tours of Top-of-the-line Contained Environments and Conatainer Data Center.

Many in the data center industry are skeptical that containers will ever see wide adoption beyond the mobile requirements, temporary capacity, and novel designs of the cloud computing facilities being built by Microsoft and Google. However, that’s starting to change.   

The Data Center industry is exploding ... and the demand for facilities that will allow for incremental growth and for ease of technology refresh is overwhelming.  Are containers the right solution for you?  Come hear from a team of the best around that is making containers a real possibility for all of us to move into.   

The Critical Facilities Round Table is a non-profit organization financed by the generous support of our members. 

 Many thanks go to Pelio & Associates and IBM for providing the space, communications, refreshments, and foods  that will help make this a successful event.
