Nordic Data Centers
With Nordic countries having swiftly established themselves as ideal locations for Data Center investment, green power, and innovative cooling technologies, a network of new, efficient, and agile data centers have been constructed from Reykjavik to Helsinki, and the North Poe to Viborg. Considerable projects by major corporations such as Facebook, Apple, IBM, Google, Yandex, and Bitcoin have highlighted the significant opportunities for outsourcing and investment in the area.
Uniquely connected with high speed, cyber secure submarine data pipes that run underneath the Baltic Sea and around the northern coast of Scandinavia, as well as high latency connectivity to the United States, and fiber connections networking Germany and the rest of Europe, this high-tech location also boasts a thriving startup arena providing new solutions and innovations backed by the specialist information technology workforce of the region. With the provision of high quality hosting facilities, cloud services, secure data storage and backup, and long-term fixed price green power contracts that comply with CSR requirements, the benefits for organizations small and large are substantial.
This year’s Datacloud Nordic is an opportunity for end users of data centers and cloud IT infrastructure, software and solution providers, experts and investors, to engage in the expansion of the sector, with the one-day forum offering information exchange, extensive networking opportunities, and the option to travel to and view power supply and government facilities in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Denmark.
Datacloud Nordic 2015 will offer companies seeking better methods of hosting and collocating new insights into the reality of a cloud-connected, data-driven, machine-led world, and will explore the latest technologies while regional and international senior executives and expert speakers meet, connect, and collaborate. With the conference providing extensive insight into energy cost and management, enterprise IT control, application management and performance, internet of things, scalability of cloud technologies, cyber security, experts and industry leaders address questions around how the Nordic markets will sustain competitive service and energy offerings, what capacity and connectivity is available across markets as migration to third party facilities rises, and who will be the winners and losers across the Nordic markets.
The data center, central to today’s business world, will have an integral role in the event. With data center services critical to operations and primed for radical transformation thanks to high levels of demand, industry leaders, experts, and investors will debate and collaborate on where the next mega data center deals are likely to come from. Challenges that confront companies adapting to a cloud environment, such as advanced security requirements, managing the transformation to cloud brokerages, workload migration, and energy efficiency will be faced, with a view to cost savingsthrough innovation, especially in Big Data.
To be held October 15th, 2015 at the Scandic Fornebu Hotel in Oslo, Norway, advanced discounts to the event close on the 11th September, 2015. With participants ranging from investment analysts to telcos, cloud service providers to country and regional development authorities, private equity firms and investors to large construction and project management companies, Datacloud Nordic 2015 promises a wealth of networking and business opportunities around IT infrastructure in Nordic markets.
