The Data Center Track at NANOG 66, led by Gabe Cole strives to outline structures and tools to help organizations develop a framework for evaluating data center performance and differentiate among service offerings. John Hawkins talk 7 Ways to Reduce Your Data Center Risk will address risk assessment and analysis as they relate to data center functionality, location, redundancy, industry standards, upgrades and maintenance, and disaster recovery planning. Gabe Cole will then address the key aspects of data center configuration that should be evaluated in the procurement process, such as low voltage design, cabinet selection and layout, and power delivery. A panel discussion with speakers Gabe Cole, John Hawkins, Phill Lawson-Shanks, and Craig Weick will debate how to approach the selection of data center providers, how to consider and measure data center services as a “utility,” and metrics to understand data center efficiency and actual compute resource requirements to minimize idle power. Gabe Cole will summarize the accomplishments of the Open-IX Association specifying requirements for interconnection-ready datacenter services and would like to solicit datacenter-minded volunteers to support Open-IX certification of data center services.
