Uptime Institute, a division of The 451 Group, announced on Wednesday that the 2012 Uptime Institute Symposium will feature a large-scale Modular Data Center Campus.

As previously announced, the seventh annual Uptime Institute Symposium will be held on May 14 to 17 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, with a theme of Digital Infrastructure Convergence.

Though the four-day event is primarily aimed at senior data center industry thought leaders, innovators and practitioners, many hosting companies will be in attendance to learn more on how they can optimize their data centers for their hosting and cloud services.

The campus, which will feature actual modular data centers from Digital Realty, IO.Anywhere, Schneider Electric and Active Power, will be available for touring on a complementary basis inside the Convention Center.

Attendees will be able to walk through actual units, make side-by-side comparisons and engage in active discussions about this growing trend in the data center industry.

Limited complementary passes are available for the Modular Data Center Campus and Expo on a first come, first serve basis by registering here.

“The data center industry is constantly evolving, and like many other sectors, owners and operators are looking for ways to cut costs, save space and increase efficiencies,” said Symposium 2012 program director Matt Stansberry. “Data centers are being created to be more economically and energy efficient, while being located virtually anywhere, including building rooftops.  Our Data Center Campus will be a great opportunity for those interested in deploying a modular data center to take an up close and personal look at the leading models and hear from the best in the business.”

The Modular Campus and Exhibition Hall will be open on May 14th and 15th to Symposium Delegates and holders of Free Modular Data Center Campus & Expo passes.  Registration is currently open on the Uptime Institute Symposium website.

Free Modular Data Center Campus & Expo passes also provide access to Symposium content on May 14th including keynote presentations from eBay, as well as presentations from companies such as Greenpeace and HP, an evening networking reception, and Green Enterprise IT Awards Presentation Ceremonies.

Symposium underwriters include Platinum sponsor Digital Realty, Diamond sponsors IO and Schneider Electric, Gold sponsors Emerson, and HP and Silver sponsors Fortrust, FieldView Solutions, NoLimits Software, RF Code, and Vantage Data Centers.

Uptime Institute provides independent thought leadership, certification, education and professional services for the global data center industry in over 50 countries.

The organization delivers due diligence assessments and certifications of site infrastructure and site management in accordance with the Tier and Operational Sustainability Standards.
