What’s driving the data centre design market?
11th July 2017 sees the next in the highly successful series of Data Centre Transformation Manchester (DT Manchester) events, organised by Angel Business Communications, in association with Datacentre Solutions, the University of Leeds and the Data Centre Alliance.
The combination of such data centre knowledge and expertise ensures that DT Manchester is the premier data centre education event in the calendar, bringing together the data centre research and design community, the data centre vendor industry and, most importantly, enterprise end users, for a collaborative information exchange.
In 2017 we will be running 6 Workshop sessions, covering a range of topics from Power, Cooling, IT Energy Efficiencies, Business Needs & Management, Education & Training. The workshops will be managed by a number of independent industry specialists and will present the findings from survey data carried out throughout the year by Datacentre Solutions and the DCA. The workshops will ensure that delegates not only earn valuable CPD accreditation points but also have an opportunity to speak to leading vendors and suppliers.
2017 promises to be an exciting year for the data centre industry, as much of the received data centre design and operations ‘wisdom’ is being challenged not just by the maturing Cloud/managed services model, but by a host of new and emerging threats and opportunities: the Internet of Things, digitalisation, mobility, DevOps and micro data centres to name but a few. In simple terms, more and more intelligence is being brought in at all levels of both the facilities and IT aspects of the data centre – and by combining the information this provides, there are some huge efficiency and optimisation gains to be made by data centre owners and operators.
Aims of the event
- To share best practice and future challenges within the Data Centre community in both public and private sectors
- To expose members of the academic community to the commercial world of data centre operations and services
- To give sponsors access to key data centre owners (from SMB through to Enterprise) as well as data centre operators & European academia
- To disseminate information from academic collaborative research projects to the industry at large
Aims for the delegates
- Convert their infrastructure silos into shared, virtualised pools of IT resources
- Establish the ideal foundation for cloud
- Equip their data centres to handle 21st century challenges
- Reduce power and cooling requirements
- Design and construct new data centres or modernise existing facilities to meet new needs via world-class datacentre technology/solutions for facilities modernisation
