Delta Force IT is a great comprehensive overview of the Data Center for Buyers and Sellers alike. Sean Tario does a thorough job of teaching what you need to know about effectively buying and selling data center space, and associated components. His in-depth industry knowledge shared throughout the course is invaluable. I recommend Delta Force IT training for any professionals in this industry who need or want to know more about the Data Center. Much thanks to the OSI team for a job well done.

The Delta Force IT Training team and coursework is excellent quality …. The presenters were thoroughly engaging. It’s rare to see a whole classroom sitting forward and so enthused.
Every one of the Myriad team came away with an entirely enlightened perspective of the world of data center, colocation, managed hosting and cloud ! A job well done. Thank you to all, please come back to NYC soon.
David Brady-Gossage, EVP Relationship Managment
Sean was immediately credible in his delivery. He captivated sales personnel and technical engineers alike with his full command of the data center industry. The training included insight on what customers are really looking for when they select a colocation partner. This training is also for organizations that want to understand their industry better, to include a historical perspective, current trends and what can be expected in the coming months.

C7 recommends the DeltaForceIT data center training for sales, technical and customer support personnel. Truly top notch training that is relevant to all facets of the data center. The training materials provided during the presentation are kept on everyone's desk as a go to reference.

DeltaForceIT is on a mission to equip and educate for the greater good of the entire Colocation community and its constituents. The time and money spent on the two day training was well worth the investment. Not only was it beneficial having common terms, calculations, and industry standards clarified, but the ability to compare notes among industry colleagues was a pleasant surprise. I will definitely be encouraging staff members as well as members of the data center community to participate when given the opportunity.

The DeltaForce IT Bootcamp was an exceptional combination of fundamental colocation education and past/current/future market trends. The tools provided help as continuous reference points during any buying and design experience.

The Boot Camp provided an excellent learning experience. Sean’s presentation, materials and tour served to identify and explain the core data center systems and considerations. These included provider business models, technical & facilities infrastructures, tier definitions, disaster recovery, networking and more. Importantly, the cost calculation and metric information provided are valuable tools for putting the many variables into a quantifiable context whether negotiating for or developing data center services.

This bootcamp exceeded my expectations. As a 15 year industry vet I had my doubts about spending 1.5 days in a training that I could be teaching myself. We methodically combed through everything you need to know as a data center seller and buyer, honed the power billing options and normalization techniques (to include a deep dive into the impact of PUE), and had the added benefit of data center managers/operators, IT buyers, and sales representatives all sharing their various perspectives in a candid exchange. I highly recommend this course to everyone in our industry, regardless of post. You will walk away more competent, confident and armed with supporting documentation to ensure your success.
Manon Buettner, Principal and CEO
Sean and his team have obviously 'been there and done that' in all facets of the IT & Data Center space and have a true talent for breaking down the overwhelming complexities of the landscape in a way for anyone to comprehend. It's truly a wealth of knowledge. My every day focus is on equipment finance and this bootcamp (as well as the book) has no doubt helped me to take a more well rounded approach to servicing our client requirements, and understanding what their true needs are.

After providing IT hardware and integration solutions to countless customers for over 15 years, I thought I was already well-informed on what goes on in the data center. This bootcamp increased my hands-on exposure to the language, variables, and ultimately the ecosystem that connects to our solutions. It has increased my usefulness to my customer which is what it’s all about.
