Some of the industry’s most respected thought leaders will speak about a range of technology trends and best practice issues at the Data Centre Summit South conference and exhibition, which will take place on 10th February 2016 at London’s prestigious Barbican Centre. This free to attend one-day event will also offer data centre professionals the opportunity to find out more about the latest technology and network with their peers.
The conference programme has been designed to cover as many areas as possible and with two seminar streams running concurrently throughout the day, delegates are guaranteed to find out valuable information about subjects that relate to their specific interests. The line-up comprises speakers from all sectors of the data centre industry including manufacturers, architects and consultants involved in the design and build of data centre environments, as well as specialists from leading technology companies.
Highlights of the conference programme include Ian Bitterlin of Leeds University, who will look at whether the data centre industry can maintain its relentless growth and the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT), and Tony Day, global director of data centre projects at Schneider Electric, who will draw on his experience to highlight some key industry trends.
Also taking the stage will be Jonathan Arnold of Volta Data Centres, who will examine connectivity issues, Neil Stobart of Cloudian on enterprise storage strategies, Andy Bailey of Stratus Technologies exploring how to keep data centres fully operational, and Peter Williams of Mayflex on the importance of using network tools to monitor traffic. Dave Hitchins of Molex Premise Networks will discuss outsourced multi-site IP infrastructure project management, while the benefits of modular data centres are to be explored by Glenn Conlon of Cannon Technologies.
It doesn’t end there through and Barry Shambrook of TCL Data will take a look at the pros and cons of raised floors, while the subject of indirect evaporative cooling is to be tackled by Christian Fieberg of R&M. They will be joined by David Wolfenden of heatload.co.uk offering a four-step approach to data centre testing and Kevin Linsell of Adapt, who will explain why the economics of IT are changing and the opportunities presented by new cloud economics.
In addition to the seminars, during regular breakout sessions delegates will get a chance to speak directly to leading manufacturers and distributors including Schneider Electric, Riello UPS, Geist, Sudlows, Stulz, Raritan, Draka, Excel Networking Solutions and Olson Electronics. Exhibitors will showcase new products and hold demonstrations of their cutting edge technology.
Hosted by Data Centre Events, the company’s managing director, Ian Titchener, commented, ‘Data Centre Summit South is designed to attract busy individuals who cannot spare the time to attend longer events, don’t want to travel long distances and who wish to learn game changing information from key industry thought leaders. London is the hub of the UK’s data centre industry and I’m confident that those who attend will find it a thoroughly beneficial use of their time.’
