In terms of the international data centre market, Ireland punches above its weight, hosting nine of the top then world leading IT companies, many of whom are looking to base their data centres here. Global companies, Google, LinkedIn, Apple and Facebook have recently selected Ireland as their base for a data centre, thus securing a number of significantly sized carrier neutral co-location data centres. DataCentres Ireland is a unique opportunity for those based in Ireland and abroad to network with peers, listen to new ideas, understand the latest approaches and get the latest information which can increase the resilience of their operation, whilst improving their efficiency and thus contributing to their bottom line, whether that be for data centres, server or comms rooms.

Ensuring your IT and comms infrastructure is run effectively, efficiently, safely and securely is vital. Whether your infrastructure is a server room with a couple of stacks, a series of comms rooms or a full blown data centre attending DataCentres Ireland will be of direct benefit to you.

Cloud and IT Security Ireland Show

The Cloud and IT Security Ireland show is designed to address the needs of the organisations who have or are considering migrating some or all of their IT needs to the cloud. Utilising a combination of end user case studies, interactive panel discussions, specialist and technical papers and the experience from experts and peers, the Cloud and IT Security Ireland Conference delivers practical information and advice, demonstrates best practice and discusses the various options available (now and in the future). The worlds of outsourcing, hosting, managed services and cloud, continue to converge bringing an unprecedented range of third party provider choices to the market. Users will increasingly seek options that enable them to make rational decisions about how and where to run applications and tasks based upon workload profile, policy, security and SLA requirements. But how will the resulting hybrid multi-cloud environments be configured, priced and delivered? How? By whom? Will they be aggregated? Integrated and managed? Themes addressed will include:
  • What are the choices and issues you need to think about when migrating to the cloud;
  • The financial implications;
  • Choosing which cloud service is right for your business? Does one size fit all?
  • Security and the cloud;
  • Legal aspects and responsibilities.
Speakers include:
  • Paul C Dwyer- CEP- Cyber Risk International
  • Simon McGarr of McGarr Solicitors will be addressing what are the legal responsibilities for Cloud?
