Web Hosting ServicesAtlanta, GA. – AdaptivCOOL, Paragon International, INC, RLE Technologies, and Upsite Technologies, today announced that they have teamed up for a complimentary Wine & Wisdom event designed to facilitate conversation and give data center end-users the best practices needed to optimize facility environments while maintaining data center uptime.

The event entitled Keeping the Up in Uptime will be held on Thursday, April 3, in Atlanta, GA from 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Several speakers will explore themes of efficiency and optimizing the data center for energy savings and how to avoid uptime disasters. The evening event will feature noted utilities and IT Consultant, Mark Bramfitt and T5 Data Centers’ Joseph Parrino.

As the former designer and director of PG&E’s data center and IT program, Mark Bramfitt will make the case that better insight and management of a cooling infrastructure yields tangible benefits – in energy and cost savings, reclaimed capacity, and better reliability and uptime. Additionally, Mark will provide an overview of the utility incentive landscape and available incentives for data center projects.

Joseph Parrino, Senior Vice President of Data Center Operations for T5 Data Centers will discuss how attendees can optimize their facilities’ environmental conditions to maintain uptime and improve performance. In his role at T5 Data Centers, he is responsible for providing 100% uptime at T5’s seven facilities and is the technical liaison between T5 and its tenants. Prior to joining T5, he was a Senior Facilities Manager for UPS, where he developed a Critical Power Distribution electrical architecture and rack standardization.

“Many data center operators are overcooling, running cooling equipment into the ground, and experiencing hot spots that could spell trouble,” said Mark Bramfitt. “I look forward to helping attendees understand that better management of cooling infrastructure can lead to better reliability and uptime.”

Held at The Wiley, the event will feature a selection of wines for tasting and a local sommelier. Additionally, attendees will be automatically entered to win a $500 American Express gift card.
