What:

Two presenters from Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP), a leading provider of storage and data management solutions, will speak at the upcoming IDG Next Generation Data Center Conference, August 6-9, 2007, at Moscone Center in San Francisco, discussing issues concerning power consumption and data security in the data center.

Session:

Reducing Data Center Power Consumption through Efficient Storage
This presentation, by Chris Bennett, will provide a new approach to fighting growing power consumption in the data center by using storage more efficiently. With energy prices skyrocketing and environmental concerns on the rise, companies need to evaluate how green their data centers are and take action to improve energy efficiency. Bennett will showcase tangible ways to improve energy efficiency.

Speaker:

Chris Bennett, NetApp vice president of Core Systems

Date:

Wednesday, August 8, 2007

Time:

10:15-11:15 a.m.

Session:

Securing Data with Strong Encryption and Access Controls
This session will cover the importance of a multi-tier security strategy for heterogeneous data center environments as well as the critical factors for securing information contained in various storage systems. Because traditional perimeter security mechanisms are no longer enough to protect sensitive information, companies need to put multilayered defenses around their data. Attendees will learn about these multilayered defenses, including strong encryption and access controls at the database and data layer, to prevent unauthorized access by bypassing applications.

Speaker:

Blair Semple, Decru® Storage Security evangelist
