Datacenter Executive Leadership Lines Up for Monaco Meeting

The executive leadership of four of the most influential datacenter players will meet in what will be the first ever public conversation during a panel taking place at Datacloud Europe in Monaco 3-4 June.

During a packed 2-day programme attended by 1.8k executives from more than 50 countries, the congress will focus on the radical impact of cloud on data centers, the continuing evolution of new innovations in cooling and energy and the way in which enterprise services are delivered and sourced. IoT, smart cities and data center investment also feature among many other topics in the content rich programme.
