London 3rd April 2012 The organisers of Datacentres 2012 (www.datacentres2012.com) Europe’s premier content led event for datacentre and cloud users and operators, have announced that Emerson Network Power is acting as Diamond sponsor and host of the Energy Theatre. The event takes place 23-24 May 2012 at the Acropolis Convention centre in Nice, France.
Datacentre energy costs can be 100-times higher than those for typical buildings, and continues to feature as a critical factor that all operators confront. The Energy Theatre will form a unique focus at the event to provide insight into all aspects of energy source, power and cooling inside the datacentre.
Jack Pouchet, Director Energy Initiatives at Emerson Network Power, will deliver a Masterclass in reducing data center energy use. He’ll discuss Energy Logic, a vendor-neutral approach to reducing datacentre energy use up to 65 percent. He’ll detail 10 strategies and the quantified energy savings associated with each and provide a lens through which facilities can self-assess to determine which strategies present the best opportunity.
“We feel that it is really important for Emerson Network Power to attend industry events such as Datacentres2012. It brings together businesses and industry influencers, giving us the opportunity to identify and discuss key trends in an open forum,” commented Emiliano Cevenini, vice president marketing, EMEA, Emerson Network Power. “We specialise in datacentre critical infrastructure, which gives us a deep understanding of business drivers affecting availability, capacity and efficiency. It is also a great platform to share the strength and depth of our portfolio.”
2012 is subtitled Energizing the Future of IT Delivery, which is reflected in the programme content. Now in its 8th year, the premier datacentres event for Europe has transformed into a Global meeting place and forum. With more than 35 countries and 700 attendees represented in 2011, the organisers have teamed up with organisations in Europe and North America whose memberships will extend the breadth of audience and horizon of opportunity.
Datacentres 2012 delivers an extensive educational programme that assembles many of the critical technical, operational, and commercial topics that confront day to day management of facilities. A host of topics and key speakers will be provided across 3 theatres plus the Datacentre Cinema, offering a mix of educational insight tracks, solution sessions, plenary sessions, training workshops and a datacentre clinic. It will also provide inspiring perspectives of Cloud and Energy, vertical markets, finance and business models, in-house versus outsourcing, new developments in modular datacentres, and emerging markets.
The programme and networking opportunities will also support enterprises to identify technology solutions to their day to day challenges, and will facilitate robust discussion and debate across a wide range of issues.
“As the flagship event for anyone engaged in the datacentre sector, 2012 will offer the most comprehensive range of insight tracks, educational sessions, keynotes, and workshops complemented by a major exhibition and high networking values,” commented Warwick Dunkley, vice president at BroadGroup. “We are delighted that Emerson Network Power will be actively participating in the event. Their experience and international presence will add greatly to the value of the debate.”
