Themed ‘Zettastructure’, this year’s conference programme will address the stresses and challenges upon data centre management created by the disaggregation of infrastructure as we enter the zettabyte era.
George Rockett, CEO, DatacenterDynamics, said, ‘In relocating this year’s event to the heart of London City, we want to reconnect with an established reputation for thought leadership and knowledge sharing. As a leading colocation destination, London is not only a global leader for data centre engineering and operational know how, it is also one of the first cities to feel the impact of zettabyte requirements. Its data centre community therefore have first-hand experiences to share and discuss.’
Situated on the bank of the River Thames at London Bridge, Old Billingsgate creates the opportunity for the event activities to continue throughout the two days of the conference. The venue will play to host to both the conference halls and a 40,000ft2 expo including the most innovative technology solutions providers in the digital infrastructure market.
‘Datacenterdynamics has always put content and networking first and second. In these respects, the event has never been well suited to a purely exposition venue,’ continued Rockett. ‘Old Billingsgate is unique in that it provides a convenient gathering point for one of the most important data centre communities, set right in the heart of one of the world’s most desirable cities. This gives both our delegates and sponsors a huge range of options in terms of the way they use the event which simply aren’t available at an out-of-town location.’
Big Data and the Internet of Everything (IOE) has catapulted digital infrastructure into the Zettabyte era, and creating the need for rapid transformation of data centre facilities. Against this backdrop, DatacenterDynamics Europe 2016 has been themed ‘Building the Zettastructure’ – the collective name given to the physical layer of hardware, facilities and networks that together forms the foundation of the digital economy.
New venue, new look conference programme
A new look conference programme includes morning plenaries followed by pre-lunch seminars, whilst the afternoons are given over to an entirely new format for ‘big discussions’ of issues and technology developments affecting the industry.
DatacenterDynamics Europe 2016 takes place at Old Billingsgate Market, 1 Old Billingsgate Walk, London EC3R 6DX on 1st-2nd November 2016.
