Service Express Addresses the Failure Curve at Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference 2019

December 6, 2019

Grand Rapids, MI Jake Blough, Chief Technical Officer at Service Express, a leading third-party maintenance (TPM) provideruncovers the realities of server and storage reliability in “The Failure Curve Isn’t Real and Other Data Center Urban Legends” speaking session at 3pm on December 11 in Room F in the Venetian at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference

As organizations look for solutions to address cost and performance goals, the long-held approach tends to overlook the strategic value of infrastructure longevity. Using equipment lifetime and failure datasets, Blough provides insights into data center refresh cycles, impacts to critical uptime, and how to effectively understand end-of-life for hardware.

“IT professionals need to constantly balance capacity, performance, reliability, cost, and compatibility in a constantly evolving IT stack,” said BloughUnder pressure from vendors, frequently we see decisions made that don’t improve conditions but prove to be costly in resources and dollars. We hope to shed some light on where and when to make investments to balance all those demands.

At Booth 371, Service Express will share how third-party maintenance (TPM) is an effective alternative to OEM data center maintenance and the advantages of extending equipment life. Attendees can also enter to win an Apple Watch or a Segway Ninebot S*.

The 2019 Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference will be held at the Venetian in Las Vegas December 912 and offers insights to act on Cloud Strategies, Cloud and Hybrid Infrastructures, Innovation and Leadership.
