The Business Design Centre,
Data Centre Summit will feature a line-up of industry thought leaders delivering valuable and insightful seminars. We are currently in the process of organising the seminars for Data Centre Summit 2018.
21st Century Load Testing
The Future Defined Data Centre
Data is not the new oil – data is the blood keeping the company fed with the oxygen it needs to survive. The data centre is made up of many and various blood vessels, from the arteries of an on premise cloud environment, through the veins of an ageing SAN to the capillaries of the laptop SSD or even smaller onto a USB data key. In order for the company to thrive in this ever changing world - where so many of today’s top companies exist only in the data which they hold - we need to take very careful decisions about how we store, access, manipulate and indeed use it to impact our P&L.
Get it right and we can thrive. Get it wrong and we know what happens when there are obstructions in the flow of blood.
Lenovo Data Centre Group do not have to be concerned about maintaining a business on the back of selling traditional data environments; we don’t need to sell the next SAN to survive. We also don’t have any particular infrastructure solutions which we need to tout as our own. Instead we work with our customers and our many partners to recommend and deliver the best possible solution in the management of that data.
After all, it’s in our DNA.
Developments in Data Centre & SAN cabling
The presentation will investigate different data centre trends, technologies & topologies in order to access the impact they have on the selection of copper & fibre cabling, transceivers and interfaces.
Cooling for Modular to Hyper scale Data Centres
Simon will explain why indirect evaporative cooling solutions should be considered for modular to hyper scale data centres. With proven independent reports and advanced epx heat exchanger technology, Munters have a global winning formula for cooling your data centre efficiently, whilst offering a truly configurable design for most installation variations.
KEYNOTE SESSION 1
EURECA: Lessons Learned from evaluating over 350 public sector data centres
The talk will present the lessons learned from the EURECA project evaluating over 350 public sector data centres in Europe over the past three years. Energy saving opportunities, barriers to adoption and running cost of facilities are among the areas covered. The talk will present for the first time some interesting results around average running cost of servers in the public sector, IT energy consumption distribution, and key factors affecting energy efficiency beyond PUE.
KEYNOTE SESSION 2
Building Shared Services around Infrastructure including Data Centres
KEYNOTE SESSION 3
Data Centre Contracts and Risks
Data centres exist to run digital services which are often critical to the business. As such, while energy efficiency is viewed as an important area in data centre operations, managing related risks and contracts is of paramount importance. This presentation will describe how to identify risks involved in data centre operations, and how to mitigate these risks. Additionally, the relationship between risk and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) is also discussed.

KEYNOTE SESSION 4
The data centre industry is constantly evolving and as connected devices and data are set to increase exponentially, the industry has a great deal of work ahead to cope with demand. Join us at the end of the day for a panel discussion featuring keynote speakers and experts from the day to learn more about issues affecting the data industry today and in the future, and share your own opinions and experiences with the Q&A session.
