DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Jun 19, 2013) - FORTRUST, the Rocky Mountain Region's premier data center and colocation services provider, announced that newly promoted Senior Vice President and General Manager Rob McClary will be speaking at the Data Center Dynamics (DCD) Converged Event on July 12th in San Francisco. This one-day industry event will draw IT Executives from across the country to discuss current trends and technologies in the data center space.
FORTRUST has historically been a leading provider of traditional raised floor colocation space but has recently adopted a modular approach to Data Center Design, Construction, and Delivery through the deployment of the IO.Anywhere® data modules and their partnership with IO. Over the course of more than a decade, FORTRUST has been reviewing, validating and developing new data center design strategies to increase data center capacity, per rack densities and drive power efficiency without expanding the walls of their Denver data center and without compromising customer uptime. With the implementation of this new technology, FORTRUST was able to do all the above. Mr. McClary will speak about FORTRUST's adoption of the new modular design and construction methodology, focusing on the benefits to the Multi-Tenant Data Center (MTDC) services provider as well as the IT end-user.
Mr. McClary states, "Our decision to shift our design and construction methodology from the traditional raised floor approach to a more modular design was not easy and at first did not seem feasible from a financial standpoint. However, through an extensive due diligence process, we were able to develop a strategy that greatly improved densities, efficiency and reduced costs from both a capital and operational standpoint. I look forward to sharing our story at the DCD event by providing insight on the benefits we have seen by changing our paradigm in how we design and deploy data center space and capacity to our customers."
FORTRUST will be exhibiting at the DCD Converged Event on July 12, 2013 at the Marriot Marquee in San Francisco. Mr. McClary is scheduled to speak from 1:30pm to 2:10pm on that day.
