This year’s DatacenterDynamics Converged Moscow event, Eastern Europe’s largest event for the data center industry, explored both the adoption of Western “best standards” for designing and building data centers and the revision of existing regulations, some of which date back to 1979.

This year was the 5th year for Converged Moscow, the largest event for the data center industry in Eastern Europe. This year’s speakers included Dmitry Satin from the Russian Federation Ministry for Communications and Mass Media. They also included Sergey Vinogradov from the Federal Tax Authority, Tony Day from Schneider Electric, Martin Carroll from CBRE Data Centers and Greg Sherry from BICSI.
According to Chris Drake from DCD Intelligence, who presented the latest results of DatacenterDynamics’ Industry Census, Russia’s data center sector saw the 5th highest rate of new “white space” growth in 2012 of all the countries covered in the Census. In addition, in 2012 Russia’s sector saw the 3rd highest rate of investment growth. The strongest investment growth related to the deployment of IT optimization technologies.
Russia’s new government-backed IT roadmap sets ambitious targets for the country. By 2018, the value of Russia’s IT industry (based on exports of IT products and services) will have doubled to reach RUB280 billion (US$8.7 billion).
Panel discussions at DCD Converged Moscow revealed that data center operators identify a lack of industry standards as one of the factors which inhibit growth in the data center sector. Other factors include a shortage of skilled engineers and the absence of regulations for ensuring the security of enterprise data “in the Cloud”. The latter is of particular concern to state enterprises which continue to be Russia’s largest consumers of data center services. 
Dmitry Satin from the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media initiated a debate on Factors that inhibit development of data center industry in Russia. Addressing the question of what needs to be changed, he suggested that the attention of regulators was required to identify and help to solve key issues. 
Alexey Degtyarev from JSC Media Grus announced that a new industry association would be formed in order to facilitate the promotion of new industry standards in Russia. These would relate not only to the design and build aspects of the data center, but also to operations based on best practices in Russia and abroad.  
DCD Converged Moscow is a leading event platform where leading Russian and international organizations share their experience, expertise and unique perspectives. This year’s event was the biggest yet, with over 750 attendees including IT Directors, CIOs and other professionals who are involved in steering the future direction of Russia’s IT and data center industry.

Viewing presentations after a DatacenterDynamics conference

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.
