Roundtable: Key Challenges Impacting Data Center Energy and Resource Efficiency

Date: June 6, 2016
Time: 10:00 CET / 09:00 BST


Join The Green Grid EMEA leadership team in a virtual roundtable discussing its latest research into European data center usage.

Data centers do not operate in a bubble, siloed away from the rest of the organization. As such, data center operators who fail to recognize the wider business impacts of improving their resource efficiency could face significant challenges when embarking on their plan. Our research found that these difficulties range from perceptions of data center operations to managerial concerns, with apprehensions about cost proving to be a common concern.

We are keen to understand your perspective on these findings and their relevance on the IT sector.

08-09

Datacloud Europe 2016

June 08, 2016

Monaco

Session: Datacloud Europe 2016

Speaker: Simon Brady and Lex Coors

Join The Green Grid’s Simon Brady and Lex Coors as they speak about data center energy efficiency at Datacloud Europe 2016.

Simon will speak about on how ICT data center infrastructure can keep up with the growth and demand for digital innovation. With IoT and other technological advances driving the need for greater energy resources, The Green Grid’s latest research has found that nearly half of IT decision-makers do not define energy efficiency resources for their organizations. This presentation will discuss this tension and potential solutions for the data center industry.

Lex will address The Green Grid's development of the new Open Standard for Data Center Availability (OSDA), a dynamic availability model that will allow the ICT industry to continue embracing data center innovation while driving toward new levels of sustainability and energy efficiency.
