Data Centre World 2022 - Themes

Edge & Future Strategies

Are today’s data centres ready for the tsunami of data coming their way? In the coming years we can expect ever more information to churn through data centres, requiring more power, scale and speed. Data centre managers need to find ways to manage their networks in the face of this onslaught. They will have to move enormous datasets in moments. They will need to prepare for edge computing and machine learning. This will require new skillsets and methodologies. In these sessions, we’ll be looking at how to prepare.

Energy efficiency, cost management and DCIM

What is your strategy for saving energy at your data centres? In these sessions we’ll be looking at how data centre and IT facilities managers can improve energy efficiency and thereby cut costs. Perhaps most important of all is measurement – you can’t manage what isn’t measured, and we’ll be taking a deep dive into the tools that can help with energy management. We’ll also be looking at strategies to reduce energy consumption, looking at vendors whose solutions help with cost management. We’ll also explore how DCIM software and innovations in cooling and ventilation can help too.

Facilities and critical equipment

A solid plan for managing facilities and critical equipment can reduce your risks and give you a chain of command for solving problems. However, many data centres lack this kind of protection. In an era of both physical and cyber insecurity, this is a serious risk. In these sessions, we’ll be exploring what the risks facing data centre facilities are, before exploring best practice in the case of failures. You’ll learn from frontline professionals across the industry, and hear about different protocols and processes for managing risks.

Design & build and physical security

The way data centres are designed and built is changing. In some places they’re becoming larger, in others we’re seeing the emergence of micro data centres. They are getting more geographically dispersed too, and they’re being built in very different environments (even at sea and under water). We’ll also have to design for new trends in computing, including edge, 5G and the rise of hyperconverged infrastructure. In these sessions we’ll be exploring these trends and how they affect the way you build and secure data centres.
