SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- InformationWeek's bMighty.com, the leading authority for delivering practical technology expertise for growing companies, has announced a timely and highly relevant virtual event on data centers, applications and virtualization for small and midsized businesses (SMB) titled: Data Centers for Growing Companies: Infrastructure to Applications.

Whether their data center is a couple of servers stashed in a closet or a gleaming, state-of-the-art climate-controlled facility, today's SMBs (defined as companies with under 1,000 employees) are facing unprecedented IT challenges: keeping the IT lights on while controlling costs, taking advantage of new technologies to stay competitive, and positioning their companies for an uncertain economic recovery in the midst of historically tough times for IT.

To handle all that, SMBs, must quickly define their data center strategies and identify specific applications and technologies even as they struggle to organize, store, and manage a massive increase in electronic information driven by the compliance mandate and the rapid move to digitizing all information. bMighty.com and InformationWeek editors have teamed with industry experts to share a unique mix of battle-tested best practices, experience-earned tips and new ideas and innovations to help SMB IT and business professionals do more with less.

The InformationWeek bMighty.com SMB Data Center Virtual Event agenda will focus on:

  • Identifying the physical challenges of building and maintaining a data center that can scale and adapt to changes in SMBs
  • Tips on how to "green up" the power and cooling environment to save real money, no matter how big -- or small -- the data center is
  • How server virtualization can save money and time for companies of virtually any size
  • The best way to create the business applications that run in the SMB data center
  • Network and trade tips with presenters and peers
  • Receive data center solutions and guidance from the leading providers and sponsors

"We have pulled together a talented group of data center experts to inform and equip SMB professionals on practically defining, deploying and optimizing a data center," said Fredric Paul, Publisher and Editor In Chief of InformationWeek's bMighty.com. "Using InformationWeek's unique virtual event environment, attendees will be able to use their time efficiently getting info they needed to make smart decisions from a variety of experts."
