DatacenterDynamics pulls in an international crowd to the world’s second tallest building - Shanghai Tower – this June
DCD’s 5th annual conference and expo in Shanghai takes place on 15th June at the Shanghai Tower conference center and is expecting an audience of over 800 delegates. This will be the first tech event ever held in what is the world’s second tallest building.
DCD Enterprise China 2016 will bring together international and domestic experts who are defining what the future data center landscape looks like. Discussions will center on international best practice for data center design and its applicability to the Chinese market, which with 650m internet users and 557m smart phone users, continues to experience unprecedented growth in its digital infrastructure requirements as the end of the decade fast approaches.
“We’ve been working in China for 6 years and over that time we’ve seen huge changes within this market,” says George Rockett, CEO, DatacenterDynamics. “Firstly, there has been an incredible rise in technology leaving the country as national vendors carve out their position in the global markets, coupled with a huge growth in Chinese companies with overseas data center expansion plans. At the same time there has been a major influx of interest in China from the US tech giants. This makes it one of the most interesting and influential data center markets in the world and makes for a great discussion this year at DCD.”
An international speaker line-up
This year’s conference programme includes a line-up of international speakers who collectively have presided over multi-billion dollar budgets. The keynote will be delivered by Scott Noteboom, former Head of Data Centers for Apple and now CEO of LitBit, a data center solutions vendor. Joining him on the podium will be Jim Smith, former CTO of Digital Realty, the world’s largest data center company and Paul Saville-King CEO of CBRE’s Global Data Center Business. The programme will also welcome representatives from China’s largest data center players.
