Online Tech’s President, Mike Klein, weighs in on changing trends in data center business models
Online PR News – 28-October-2010 – – On Monday, November 8, Mike Klein will join fellow executives in Los Angeles to join a panel discussion on “Comparing Models for Data Center Companies” at IMN’s Forum on Financing, Investing & Real Estate Development for Data Centers. In addition to speaking about financial and ownership issues that affect data center businesses, Mike will share his experience with the way dedicated private clouds are changing the horizon for managed data centers.
“The benefits of server virtualization and the interest in public and private cloud hosting are forcing data center operators to modify their business models to support their customers with these new paradigms,” says Mike Klein, President of Online Tech, a leading Midwest data center operator. “Data center operators are evaluating the resources required to support public and private cloud hosting and the long-term return on these technologies to determine how revenue and ROI models will impact their business. It’s generating a lot of introspection about the physical and virtual capacity of tomorrow’s data center.”
The panel of data center executives will also touch on retail, wholesale, and hybrid pricing approaches; green data center models; balancing growth and managing risk; ownership options; facility evaluation and ratings; profitability; data center capacity models; up front facility costs; weighing build-your-own, acquiring existing buildings or acquiring an existing company; privately held vs. publically held companies.
