Sometimes it is hard to get someone to change their habits and try something new. Years ago I was on the regular data center circuit - Uptime Symposium, DatacenterDynamics, Data Center World, Gartner Data Center Conference and a range of others. Then I had a good friend who is a 7x24 Exchange Board member say you need to come to 7x24 Exchange. No, I go to enough data center conferences. Come on give it a try. I know others who liked the 7x24 events so I decided to give a try. Like Mikey.
I got another data center exec to give 7x24 Exchange a try and we both have consistently attended twice a year for the past 3 years. I like 7x24 Exchange.
Have you tried it? Mikey would like it. Oh I could have written this post using Mikey Manos as the subject. :-) Unfortunately, now that Mike is CTO of First Data Corp we don’t see him like we used to at data center events.
