Thanks for the training it, it was honestly great. Coming from a finance background I was worried that when I arrived to the boot camp, everything would be over my head. You really took the time to start from the beginning and effectively explain data centers from the top down. Although as a sales guy I am more interested in calculating costs of space an power, I found the entire course to be useful. I have a solid foundation in understanding the physical layout of the data center space, how it is powered, and how it is cooled.
The training itself took difficult information and simplified it. It covered everything that I basically had to figure out for myself over the last few years. It will be extremely useful in my next endeavor. I will highly recommend the training to any group that I am working with. I understand that data centers are a special "niche" and many out there are eager to learn about them.
Your book simplifies and covers everything. It will be a great reference for me to use as well.
It was good for me to see other data centers so that I could compare them. It's easy to get biased when working for one data center and not acknowledge that other data centers may be a better fit. I have a better perspective now.
I liked the training style and the feeling that you actually "cared" about us as people. Your "lunchtime" discussion of personality styles-specifically not "interrupting" and clarifying what you are hearing from others- is helping me in my current job search and in my personal life. I mean it when I say that your training and meeting you in person could not have come at a better time.
Thank you for the valuable and insightful DeltaForceIT training. I must say, again, that I have never been in an industry focused training that covered the history, scope and core sales knowledge the way you did within a short 2 day training. Nice work!
It's a thorough and honest overview of today's commercial data center marketplace. As a relative newcomer to the industry, I thought the material was really helpful. Sean explained fundamental concepts in simple and clear terms which made the more advanced material easier to understand. The highlight is the tour of data centers - it made the training very real and relevant to my role as an analyst of the commercial data center marketplace. Thanks!
This was completely a transformational event for me. Not only did OSI take the time to explain all of the technical components inside the walls of a Data Center, Sean and team armed me with relevant sales strategies that enabled me to hit the ground running with my sales force! I would recommend this course for anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of Data Center products and services. I feel absolutely privileged to be able to leverage an expert resource like OSI for all my future deals.
I have worked at Digital Realty for 10 months…and that is the extent of my experience in the data center industry. I told Evan and Rhea when I saw them the second day that this bootcamp was something I wish I had had when I first started! Until your class, I hadn’t had any sort of basic data center/industry training. While I have already learned a lot by jumping in there and working on deals and learning from my colleagues, that basic training was what was missing. THANK YOU! So many concepts, terms, best business practices, etc. make so much more sense to me now and having that knowledge will definitely help me navigate this industry more effectively and hopefully make me a better partner to my customers.
Thank you so much for the education. It was really great and I appreciated your candor regarding other data centers. I also felt that you did a great job considering that you were sick. I felt that the book was great because it was written in terms that most people can understand. You covered the points that most people struggle with, i.e. cooling, generator power and *n*. We felt that we got a lot out of the course and there isn’t a negative comment I have…wish I could pick it apart for you…but I can’t. It was really great.
The information you presented along with the class discussion really helped fill in holes in my training here at work. It’s my goal to become a technically strong rep and your class definitely moved me closer to reaching it. A light bulb lit over my head (did you see it?) during the power calculation case studies. That was exactly what I needed.
I appreciated the format of the class that allowed for discussion on industry proven theories of data center operation. I also appreciated the scope of the course materials that highlighted some things that I don’t deal with on a daily basis. Lastly I appreciated the “industry playbook” manual that I was able to bring home and review as needed, and was able to share information with others.
I wish I had this training years ago, I would have been so much farther in my career by now.
