NY Tech Summit Next week
« on: May 27, 2015, 09:19:02 AM »
It's being held at Turning Stone Casino again.  Turning Stone is the largest Avaya SPB installation in the Northeast, and SPB has really reduced provisioning times for them while increasing their network security.
However, Avaya is not represented at the NY Tech Summit -just information about the venue's infrastructure.

The actual event (disclaimer - I'm on the Advisory board and speaking there!) looks like a better event than last year.  There will be a playground where vendor products will be available for hands-on review.  It is also focusing on more non-technical items such as staffing which is a huge problem in the Northeast these days.  I'm speaking about Super User model software deployments, with a great story from my work. 
The event does have lots of vendor representation - I'm looking forward to being there!  Last year I got into some spirited discussions about power design with a couple of the reps there, and saw a sample of one of the first certified 277V PDU.  As the server manufacturers come on-board, many data centers could eliminate the 480 to 440 stepdown transformers and improve efficiency.  I thought it was cool, but maybe it's just me...  :-)
