While Big Data and IoT are driving data centre expansion with data typically stored in massive facilities in and around key cities, Schneider Electric will argue that data centres are not being constructed fast enough to keep up with demand.
More importantly, some cloud based applications or services do not meet customer requirements if they are too remote and hindered with excessive latency. The opportunity is open for colocation providers to deploy data centres with speed at the regional level or at the network edge. These facilities quite literally extend the ‘edge’ of the Internet further from the traditional Internet hubs and represent a new market opportunity.
The keynote will assess leading technologies and techniques such as Lithium-Ion, prefabrication, modularity, open compute architectures, and automated design tools being utilised to bring local capacity online fast.
Schneider Electric will take the stage along with leaders from global players including Facebook, Level 3, Telefónica, LinkedIn, Proctor & Gamble, Google, and other infrastructure senior executives.
