Knowledge is power, don’t hand it to others, warn Ireland datacentre expo organisers


dc-ireland-1-conferenceSponsored post: Knowledge is power – and with the speed of development in Ireland, not knowing what is happening is to hand that power to others. So say the organisers of Data Centres Ireland Conference and Exhibition, held 8-9 November 2016, at RDS Dublin.

Already this year, over €2billion (£1.68billion) in new datacentre projects have been announced and a further €2billion is forecast to follow over the next five years.

Projects include:

*             €200m – New DataCentre in Cork – JDC Group

*             €150m Expansion into New DataCentre in Dublin – Google

*             €900m Expansion of Dublin DataCentre Campus – Microsoft

*             160hectare New DataCentre & IT Campus site in Killala, Co. Mayo

*             €1billion, New DataCentre in Galway – Apple

*             €800m New DataCentre in Co. Meath – Facebook

*             New DataCentre in Dublin – EdgeConnex

*             The Gemini Project – Dublin

*             New large DataCentre planned in Limerick – Tiernan Properties

This scale of investment activity is driving growth in the datacentre market and creating business opportunities for investors, operators, suppliers and service providers.


Brexit, Safe Harbor 2, Tax Rates, People, are all key factors. As is Ireland’s vastly improved connectivity both nationally and internationally – with new faster ‘pipes’ giving direct connections to the USA, Paris and the Netherlands without going via London.

Ireland is uniquely positioned to capitalise on the need for more data storage and hosting which will be driven by in no small way by; IOT (Internet of Things), M2M (Machine to Machine) communications, driverless cars, new 5G services, and the continued growth of streamed video.

All this is driving growth and business opportunities.
