SMU Datacenter Systems Engineering Symposium

The Bobby B Lyle School of Engineering, Southern Methodist University in Dallas will be hosting a symposium May 5th 2014 entitled “Opportunities for Datacenters: Data Management –  Facilities and Reliability – Security, Energy and Workforce Requirements”  This symposium is part of the new Datacenter Systems Engineering program that SMU has recently launched.

I am serving on the Advisory Board for the program, along with other individuals representing the school and industry.

From SMU’s website:

“This program is specifically designed for professionals who are actively employed in the management of data and the extraction of useful information, computer networking, virtualization, and security. Additionally, this program addresses the design and maintenance of datacenters; its mission critical facility subsystems and is well suited for students to gain working knowledge and skill sets necessary to enter this field.”

This should be an exciting program – hope to see you in Dallas May 5th.  The event starts with breakfast at 7:30 and finishes at 10:00 a.m.
