Join Us at Intel Data Center Live Chat

I'm working with my colleagues in The Server Room to organize an Intel Data Center Live Chat on Open Port. This is the first IT@Intel Live Chat on Open Port. I'm very excited about it. Come and join us!

In the Live Chat, we will be focusing on the industry hot topics in the data centers including IT Data Center Strategies and Server Refresh. Our IT experts has recently published a white paper on Intel IT's Data Center Strategies and our approach to improve efficiency. They will attend this Live Chat to discuss our strategy, respond to your questions and listen to your views.

The Live Chat will be hosted at 10am - 12pm PST on December 8th, 2009 at The Server Room.

Please join us for the Live Chat and ask questions directly to our IT experts. At the Live Chat, we will give away a free "Energy Efficiency for Information Technology" book to all attendees. Details about the book giveaway will be annouced at the chat session.
