DatacenterDynamics, the world’s leading peer-led data centre conference and expo returns to Dubai!
Our annual Converged conference takes place on the 27th May 2013 at the Madinat Jumeirah Dubai. Join us this year as we continue to explore the latest issues, trends and technologies that drive the market forward. What’s new this year? We have revamped the program to add a more regional focus on the Middle East market, so this year, you will hear from experts not only from the UAE, but also from Bahrain, Oman and further afield. Our sessions are focused on not only what are the current issues, but also explore what the future holds for us as the market continues to grow in the Middle East.
Our annual Census in 2012 concluded that the main investment drivers across the Gulf states would be on increasing IT capacity, a push towards cloud computing and reducing operating costs. Both operators and vendors are now looking at a market that is geared towards consolidation and higher efficiencies. Another point to note is that the Middle East is a highly regulated market and this presents a challenge on a myriad of fronts. Therefore this year’s event include sessions that will dig deeper into the issues above and give you a better understanding of the complex nature of the market.
In light of all the issues and movements in the market, this year’s Converged conference aims to further assist the community in exchanging ideas, accessing market knowledge and launching new initiatives. Once again we look forward to hosting you on 27th May 2013 to uncover the drivers and inhibitors that will shape the Middle East market in years to come.
From site selection and engineering design through to power availability and full data center automation
From collocation to Platform-as-a-Service, from Software-as-a-Service, to building your data centre capacity in the cloud
Insight on how IT needs drive data centre strategy and how that impacts infrastructure requirements
DatacenterDynamics Dubai is specifically designed to fill the knowledge and networking needs for both those responsible for the design, build an operation of IT facilities as well as key IT decision makers responsible for strategic decisions regarding capacity planning and technology investment.
Registered attendees of an event are able to access the majority of the material presented after an event. We are introducing a new system - PresentationPLAYBACK - which enables you to listen to a full sound recording of the session along with the PowerPoint and any associated movies in a single file.
You will therefore need to have a recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer in order to view them (Google Chrome Users need not worry about this, as it's pre-built-in). Although we now endeavour to record all presentations in this format, occasionally - for technical reasons beyond our control - it is not possible to fully capture all sessions; in such cases you will only be able to view a PDF.
To access PresentationPLAYBACK you must be signed into your account. Click on the MyDCD button on the top navigation panel which will take you to your personal homepage - on the right hand column you will find an area headed 'My Presentations'. Here are listed the conferences you have access to (see access and restrictions below). The links will take you to the programme page of that conference, and by clicking on a session you will be taken to the individual conference asset where you will find the feature. Alternatively you can navigate to the conference site you wish and acess the file directly from there - remember you must be signed in.
DatacenterDynamics Conference sessions with this feature available will display the PresentationPLAYBACK icon:
The player is simple to use. Click on the play button for automatic playback, or advance through the slides.
