(WEB HOST INDUSTRY REVIEW) -- Gathering more than 700 data center professionals, the Data Center World 2009 conference, organized by data center industry organization AFCOM, officially opens this Sunday, March 8 in Las Vegas and runs until March 12.

According to AFCOM's Friday announcement, the DCW09 conference at the Paris Hotel and Convention Center will feature more than 75 educational sessions on a variety of topics including greening the data center, security, virtualization, cloud computing, and cost savings, which seems especially pertinent during the current economic malaise.
