Following the hot summer, IXEurope, one of Europe’s largest independent datacentre operators, is to take active involvement in a conference dedicated to explore such issues.
IXeurope has 14 datacentres in the UK, Germany, France and Switzerland and says that the inaugural Power and Cooling for Data Centres Summit 2006 will bring together datacentre players and leading experts to address these issues and share valuable intelligence and knowledge to support strategic power and cooling decisions.
Guy Willner, CEO of IXEurope, comments, “Of all challenges currently confronting datacentres, as they continue to achieve continued growth, those of power and cooling characterise the most concerning and perhaps the most difficult to resolve in the short term. As servers become more complex and power-hungry, some enterprise datacentres simply cannot provide sufficient power or cooling.”
“We look forward to sharing the ways in which the managed datacentre industry is helping its customers to improve power efficiency for the latest technologies, particularly in extreme conditions.”
Researched and produced by BroadGroup, the event is taking place on 25-26 October at the London Paddington Hilton Hotel.
