Data Centres Ireland: 60 speakers confirmed


Data Centres Ireland will be providing key insights into the Irish data centre sector, exploring the opportunities and challenges facing the industry in this region. The data centre market in Ireland is experiencing significant growth: an additional 29 data centres have received planning permission and are under development, and capacity is forecast to double from 600MW to 1200MW in the next 5 years.

This level of investment means there are huge opportunities for Investors, Suppliers and Service providers operating in the Data Centre Infrastructure sector. The Irish Data Centre Sector report prepared by ‘Host In Ireland’ in association with ‘Bitpower’ states“Inward investment from data centres has tripled over the past four years bringing the average annual spend to €1.3bn each year, and this continues to grow.”

Data Centres Ireland is also going from strength to strength. Last year saw 16 new data halls come online taking the total number to 53. DataCentres Ireland is the country’s largest and most complete event addressing the needs of all those involved in the Irish Data Centre market.

Featuring over 60 speakers and panellists, the Multi-Streamed Conference will again host a Strategy Steam as well as one addressing Operational issues, to ensure relevance to all involved in the data centres sector, as well as other mission critical environments.
