DatacenterDynamics pulls together the people, process and technology necessary to execute a world-class data center strategy under one roof Our Converged conference programme is separated into three streams of speaker presentations:

Design, Build, Operate

Design, Build, Operate is our longest running conference theme and focuses on every part of the mission-critical facility lifecycle. From site selection and engineering design through to power availability and full data center automation; this is a must attend event for any organisation embarking on a new data center project or operating existing facilities.

Outsourcing Decisions

For every decision to build a data centre there is one to outsource. From collocation to Platform as a Service, from Software as a Service, to building your data center capacity in the cloud, what are the options most appropriate to your organisation? This conference theme explores an enterprise's strategic options for data center outsourcing, weighing up the economic benefits, the risks and the performance characteristics against those of doing it yourself.

IT Optimisation

The efficiency of the facility is only half the equation – optimizing all the systems that run within it is crucial: from processing to storage, to network to application. The ITO conference stream provides insight on how IT needs drive data centre strategy and how that impacts infrastructure requirements.


They also feature an exhibition area where you can see and discuss the latest technology available along with excellent networking opportunities.
