DENVER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- FORTRUST, the Rocky Mountain Region's premium data center and colocation services provider, announced today that they will be sponsoring one of the colocation industry's most prominent events in Las Vegas next week as they exhibit at the Gartner Data Center Conference. The event is one of the largest and most anticipated data center events of 2012.
The event is expected to focus on innovation that optimizes data center infrastructure and operations, discussing trends and topics pertinent to delivering IT operational excellence and increasing business value. With over forty Gartner Analysts onsite, the research and dialogue surrounding new technology will clearly be a prevalent topic. The event also includes informative analyst sessions, educational workshops and insightful peer interaction. FORTRUST's decision to participate in the event was predicated upon their successful deployment of Datacenter 2.0 (modular data center design) -- the next generation of data center.
Rob McClary, Vice President of FORTRUST states, "While raised floor is still a suitable option that meets the needs for certain customers, data modules represent the innovation and evolution of data center infrastructure and operations. FORTRUST has effectively implemented the modular technology and we are excited to share our story at the Gartner Data Center Conference." FORTRUST's partnership with IO gives them the ability to provide customers with higher power density requirements an efficient and highly secure modular solution for their colocation needs via the Powered by IO Program in their Denver multi-tenant data center.
Cloud companies such as Ajubeo, a prominent Cloud Provider, FORTRUST customer and trusted FORTRUST partner exemplify the company profile that is ideal for such innovative colocation solutions. Ajubeo president and CEO Chuck Price and CTO Tom Whitcomb will be presenting at the conference alongside Brocade on the importance of high-performance network infrastructure when delivering an enterprise-ready cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering, touching on agility and resiliency.
FORTRUST will be exhibiting at booth #623 at the conference. The Venetian Hotel has granted FORTRUST's partner IO the ability to bring in a fully functional data module for the event. FORTRUST sales reps will be giving tours of the data module to attendees so they may experience firsthand the shift in efficient data center design. McClary adds "We have found that the technology is best understood when provided the opportunity to see the modules in person. The growth in the adoption of this new efficient approach to data center design is growing given the success of our recent deployment of the data modules in our Denver facility. We look forward to sharing this new technology with attendees next week at Gartner, as it really does speak for itself."
