DuPont Fabros Technology Inc. has announced that it will have two speakers presenting at the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference on Dec. 3 and 4 at the Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

DFT has teamed with Jim Craig, Olympic gold medalist and goalie of the 1980 USA hockey team, to speak on “The Power of Teamwork,” on Wed., Dec. 3 at 7:15 a.m. PST in the Venetian G room. Craig will provide specific examples from the experience of the U.S. “Miracle on Ice” hockey team and how it confounded the experts, made history . . . and made it to the top of the podium. The first 50 attendees will receive a copy of Craig’s book, “Gold Medal Strategies: Business Lessons From America’s Miracle Team.”*

Scott Davis, executive vice president of operations for DFT, will present on “It Takes a Team: Building the Next Generation Data Center” on Thurs., Dec. 4 at 11:30 a.m. PST in the Bassano 2601 room. Davis will provide a first look into the design and building of DFT’s latest mega data center and innovative commissioning techniques. Attendees will learn how DFT transformed traditional computer room power distribution, resulting in improved energy efficiency and reduced operating costs without sacrificing reliability. Features include a medium voltage electrical distribution system, an Isolated-Parallel UPS topology, new innovations within the cooling design and an industry-leading PUE.

“Events like Gartner’s Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference exude a high caliber of mindshare, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to engage with attendees, customers, partners and analysts” said Lee Kestler, senior vice president of sales and leasing for DuPont Fabros Technology. “Data center infrastructure management is a hot topic at the conference this year, and we are excited to share results from our latest data center design. We collaborated with customers who inspired progressive design ideas, which in turn, provided the new standard for our next generation data centers.”

DFT is a Silver Plus sponsor and will be located in booth #380.
