"The data center industry is constantly evolving, and like many other sectors, owners and operators are looking for ways to cut costs, save space and increase efficiencies," said Matt Stansberry, Symposium 2012 program director. "Data centers are being created to be more economically and energy efficient, while being located virtually anywhere, including building rooftops. Our Data Center Campus will be a great opportunity for those interested in deploying a modular data center to take an up-close and personal look at the leading models and hear from the best in the business."

The Modular Campus and Exhibition Hall will be open on May 14th and 15th and is available to Symposium Delegates and holders of Free Modular Data Center Campus & Expo passes. Free Modular Data Center Campus & Expo passes also provide access to Symposium content on May 14th, including keynote presentations from eBay, as well as presentations from companies such as Greenpeace and HP; an evening networking reception; and Green Enterprise IT Awards Presentation Ceremonies.
