Data centres are the indispensable engine rooms of the digital age. With exponential growth of digital devices, cloud computing and online commerce and communication, the demands on existing and future data centres are ever more exacting. Data centres now need to be designed and built for an ever-changing future. What are the factors that will determine the requirements of the future data centre, what are the challenges of meeting those requirements and which organisations are leading the way designing the data centres of the future?


The seminar will bring together some of the global leaders in data centre research, design and engineering to inform delegates of the factors determining data centres of the future, highlight best-practice design and establish latest solutions to provide reliable, sustainable and efficient energy to power mission critical systems.
