High-tech data centre systems will be top of the agenda for a regional roadshow next month, organised by cabling specialist Ortronics, alongside Fluke Networks and TSI. The roadshow will cover the Gulf, and will include stops in Riyadh, Dammam, Bahrain, Kuwait, Doha and Dubai. The first show will be held in Riyadh’s Marriott Hotel on 11 June. The focus of the events will be the latest 10G networking systems, and how enterprises can deploy them effectively in data centres and other areas of the business. Ortronics’s technical and training manager Gauthier Humbert said the events will allow IT professionals to keep abreast of current networking technology. “Attending our half day conference will enable IT managers and consultants to keep in touch with the latest evolution in networks, and to have a better understanding of how these will change their future way of work,” said Humbert. “I am really enthusiastic about our guest speakers: we have managed to bring a BICSI master trainer and three RCDDs to this event,” he added. The Ortronics, Fluke and TSI event will include two main presentations: the first, titled “Designing networks' infrastructure for high performance while reducing costs”, will focus on current enterprise and IT manager expectations around cost and performance, and the technologies which can deliver both. The second presentation – “ Getting ready for 10Gb in datacenter and other high performance applications” – will look at 10G networks, currently one of the hottest topics in the sector, but one which is often not clearly understood. The roadshow is the latest in a series of events around the datacentre to come to the Middle East, following the successful debut of international event Data Centre Dynamics last year, and a number of other vendor-led roadshows in recent months.
