    years in the IT industry, in total. • Every year they publish thousands of pages of original research and respond

    directly to over 13,000 inquiries from Gartner clients around the world.

    40 on-site analysts Analyst one-on-one sessions Meet with the analyst of your choice and reap the benefits of individualized, results-oriented attention. You decide the topic or issue for discussion.

    The Gartner Data Center Conference 2010 offers you the unique opportunity to meet privately with one of our analysts in a one-on-one session on-site. What to expect? A 30-minute consultation completely focused on helping you craft actionable solutions to current challenges.

    Many attendees tell us that a one-on-one session is worth the price of admission, all by itself. Roll up your sleeves with a Gartner analyst and explore the best ways to move your strategy forward. For further details on how to schedule a private meeting with an analyst of your choice, go to gartner.com/us/datacenter.

    What’s up for discussion? Here’s a brief sampling of some of the specific challenges attendees have explored with Gartner analysts at recent one-on-one sessions. • When it comes to implementing a disaster recovery site—specifically one at a

    remote location—what are the available options? And how can VMWare and SAN storage be utilized in the DR plan?

    • With a new data center coming online in 12 months, what role should cloud computing play, especially for development and test environments?

    • Which software solution would best support an ITIL implementation? • What’s the most effective strategy for putting together a three-year infrastructure plan? • Basic capacity management functionality/reporting for servers and storage

    were recently implemented. What are the next steps to improving and maturing capacity management?

    Analyst-user roundtables Analyst-user roundtables provide a relaxed setting where you can share real-life experiences with your peers on a range of hot-button topics. Gartner analysts moderate and add relevant research and user experiences to the discussion. Share best practices and find new and informed insight on issues that matter. Analyst-user roundtables are restricted to end users only, and limited to approximately 12 participants each. Preregistration is required. See Pages 10 – 16 for a list of roundtable sessions identified by track topic.

    In my experience, Gartner analysts have been able to address any topic I throw at them. Dr. Wayne Brown, Vice President for Information Technology, Excelsior College, Albany, NY
