The theme of the event was ‘Thinking about tomorrow’s data centre infrastructure, today’. Jonas Caino, Geist enterprise development manager, gave an informative presentation, walking the audience through the exponential changes the industry has seen in data in terms of volume and transmission speeds, from the evolution of the first computer through to the present day. He also issued some challenges regarding the paradigm shift required when planning data centres that will cope with future data requirements.
Scott Harrison, EMEA sales and marketing manager, said, ‘This is the second event Geist has held at The Shard and it was very well attended. The presentation was wide reaching and prompted a lot of discussion with the audience. The key points that emerged from the discussions were the careful balance required to manage data centres efficiently.’
Hands-on demonstrations and workshops were available at the end of the event covering the four key cornerstones of Geist’s product portfolio: Power, Cool, Monitor and DCIM.
