The Data Center Austin Conference (DCAC) has announced an expanded speaker roster and content program for their fifth annual summit. Taking place September 24-25 in Austin, Texas, this year’s event will feature breakout sessions where data center luminaries will join enterprise clients to discuss actual use cases that have demonstrated a progressive impact upon the industry, in addition to the thought-provoking keynotes that have distinguished DCAC since it’s inception. The breakout sessions will include presentations by Google, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, T5 Data Centers, and more.

A staple of DCAC has always been the event’s dynamic networking atmosphere, replete with a host of on-site amenities that vary from the health conscious, to the luxurious and indulgent, to the epicurean. Rest assured, this year is no different. Among the attractions are intravenous vitamin and hydration therapies,  hand-rolled Cuban cigars, straight razor shaves, and salon style hair blowouts, which are accompanied by classic Texas barbeque and authentic Austin food truck fare all delivered to the beats of a local DJ. Eaton, the global power management company, is the event’s title sponsor.

“Far from trivializing the networking or amenities available at DCAC, our event embraces them,” states Kirk Offel, founder of DCAC. “We believe this type of environment is conducive to a more meaningful exchange of ideas where everyone can feel free to participate and be heard.”

DCAC has also added some technology superstars to the speaker roster. Jennifer Cook, Head of Production at Dreamscape Immersive, a location-based virtual reality (VR) studio backed by 21st Century Fox, WarnerMedia and Steven Spielberg will address the DCAC audience on VR and augmented reality (AR). She is joined by Marcie Jastrow, Senior Vice President of Immersive Media and Head of the Technicolor Experience Center, a space that brings together partners across the VR/AR spectrum to develop powerful stories through creative technology. The full list of confirmed speakers can be viewed here, with more to be announced soon.
