The Potomac Chapter of AFCOM, an international association of data center management professionals, recently held its first Washington DC area meeting of 2012.
Attendees were treated to two very interesting presentations. The first, given by Tim Lafollette of ATPCO, outlined the process that he and his ATPCO colleagues followed as they worked through the challenges of migrating their data center. Following this presentation, a panel discussion was conducted with a number of representatives from local colocation providers, including Equinix, Peak 10, Power Loft and Du Pont Fabros.
The new Chapter Treasurer, Steve Altizer (President of Compu Dynamics), and the other newly appointed Board Members, had a chance to introduce themselves to the audience. Stay tuned for more AFCOM events over the next three quarters.
