Taking place at Billingsgate, London (5-6 November), DCD London explores the full on-premise/off-premise infrastructure ecosystem, from enterprise to hyperscale, and colocation to edge. With an audience of senior executives and technical teams from many of the largest data centre operators globally, responsible for the design, build, management and operation of mission critical IT facilities, this is a must attend event. This year the key themes focus on five pertinent topics:
Energy Smart Infrastructure
From future battery technology to microgrids and the latest cooling tech this year’s conference programme will provide data centre operators with expert opinion and guidance on how to design and operate highly-efficient and highly-reliable mission critical environments that support the next generation of high density IT.
The Business of Data Centres
Access to capital, site selection, energy procurement, connectivity are just some of the factors that developers and operators must consider when planning a new facility. This year’s we look at how the European data center market is adapting to power shortages, regulation, economic and political uncertainty.
5G, AI & The Connected Edge
The digital infrastructure landscape is evolving fast with 5G and IoT technologies set to ignite exponential data growth and a new edge data centre industry. This year’s conference brings together the foremost thinkers on the subject to help delegates better understand how data centre deployment and capacity models will radically change.
Modernisation and Lifecycle Management
Retrofitting existing data centres to manage modern workloads and maximise capex might be less glamorous than greenfield data center design and build, but 60% of attendees say these are priority projects. This year’s conference brings together operators, technology vendors and design consultants to share best practice for data centre upgrades.
Planning for Hybrid IT
Effectively managing capacity and operations between on-premise, colocation and the cloud is an increasingly complex task that requires new types of risk assessment and skill sets. This year’s conference programme provides new perspectives on the intersect between facilities and IT operations in a hybrid world. Click here to find out more and to register.
