Redefining Data Centres: Sustainability, Resiliency, and Tech Innovation

Take a macro view of the data centre industry, considering the impact of future tech, climate action, and geopolitics on global data centre strategies.

Explore the emerging trends and best practices from across the globe, including net-zero commitments, decarbonising efforts, and AI-driven operations.

Delegates will consider the role of hyperscalers, the intersection of edge and cloud technologies, and exciting future possibilities like off-land data centres.

We will also tackle how to remain resilient in the face of world events like Brexit or geopolitical conflicts that impact data centre operation and management. 

Navigating the Regulation Landscape

This theme features a robust exploration of the evolving regulatory landscape, examining data sovereignty, data localisation, sustainability mandates, and building regulations.

Delegates will discuss the challenges and opportunities these regulations present, offering insights on how to maintain compliance without stifling innovation. 

Efficiency, Cost Management and DCIM

Illuminate the path towards sustainable, cost-efficient data centre operation without compromising performance.

This theme shines a light on the critical balance between resource efficiency and the ever-growing demand for data centre resources.

Take a look at the innovative solutions for waste management, effective cost reduction strategies, and circular economies.

Acknowledging that cooling systems account for nearly 40% of total data centre energy consumption, delegates will explore the latest innovations in cooling and ventilation.

The advantages and broader implications of Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) will also be explored. 

The Pillars of Data Centre Resilience: Security and Continuity

In an industry where downtime is detrimental, this theme focuses on risk management, prevention, and security in data centre facilities and equipment.

Delegates will explore the innovations in design, strategies for managing physical and cyber threats, and best practices for failure response.

Learn about cutting-edge physical security measures and methods to protect data centres from various threats, ensuring business continuity and resilience. 

Designing the Future: Next-Gen Strategies for Data Centre Infrastructure

Data centre capacity requirements are continuously rising, yet vacancy rates are falling.

The design and build of these facilities must evolve to meet these changing demands.

This theme tackles the challenges and strategies related to managing increasing capacity needs amidst limited availability.

Delegates will examine effective designs for modern data centres, the rise of micro data centres, and the importance of strategic geographical placement.

Explore impact of 5G and hyperconverged infrastructure on data centre design and learn about the role of Data Centre Interconnect (DCI) in this rapidly evolving landscape. 

Cultivating a Vibrant Data Centre Workforce

People are at the heart of the data centre industry.

The human aspect of data centres is the focus here, exploring skill development, recruitment strategies, and the cultivation of a diverse workforce.

With an urgent skills shortage looming, we will consider strategies for attracting and retaining top talent.

This theme highlights the importance of skill development, training, and promoting diversity in the workforce.

We will address the ultimate goal of empowering a workforce capable of conquering tomorrow's data centre challenges.

Attend Data Centre World on 6-7 March 2023 at ExCeL London

Data Centre World is designed for C-level staff, data centre leaders, end users, managers and key decision makers. No matter the size of your business, or whether you represent the public or private sector, there will be lots of takeaways and goals to achieve at the event.
