With the EU stating that “Data Centres, can, and should be carbon neutral by 2030” is there the possibility of using the waste heat more efficiently? This expert panel will discuss the potential, the engineering, the enabling infrastructure, the technical skills required and the costs and benefits of waste heat reuse, especially for smaller edge sites and whether the wide scale adoption of innovative technologies such as immersed cooling, tip the industry towards the edge!

Outline of the Panel Discussion:

“The ongoing edge deployment trend is resulting in the creation of business critical sites that are both remote and generally not staffed. The current difficulties with travel and site access pose similar challenges to more traditional sites. This panel of Experts will discuss “How do we monitor, manage and maintain these sites to ensure continued availability and reliability?”

Areas that were discussed:

  • Edge deployment and the growing dependency on remote sites that are not manned yet potentially business critical
  • Dark Data Centres
  • The requirement to manage increasingly complex, geographically diverse, hybrid digital infrastructure
  • How can these sites remain reliable and available without onsite staff?
  • How should site visits and essential maintenance be manged and performed?
  • Should we be introducing new operational models that better suit remote, dark site management?
  • How do we collate the information we need to manage multiple unmanned remote sites to achieve operational and economic objectives?
  • Yet we need to have this accuracy and confidence in the data to properly support the business and the economics of operating a data centre
  • How do we achieve this dream?
  • What is tools are there or are being developed to assist those challenged with managing datacentres and other Critical Infrastructure?

Presentation Summary:

Today’s enterprise data centre must handle more requirements than ever before, with the IT infrastructure connecting distributed ecosystems of employees, partners, and suppliers.

With this complexity comes the need for technology and services to ensure high availability and optimal performance of the IT delivery infrastructure.

For resource-strapped IT organisations, managing these complex IT environments can present significant challenges. IT managers are focusing on driving strategic technology transformations that can directly affect bottom-line revenue rather than manage legacy IT assets.

Recent research from IDC has indicated that IT leaders are increasingly relying more heavily on IT support providers that can help improve their IT operations, while also meeting the ever-increasing demand for IT performance.

This webinar, hosted together with IDC, will seek to explore and highlight what IT organisations should look for in a support partner, while addressing steps to take if managing multiple support providers becomes just as challenging as managing the IT infrastructure themselves.

Key takeaways of the webinar for attendees, are;

1. Learn how increasingly complicated IT infrastructures are driving the need for new and different types of outsourced support

2. Understand the latest trends in how companies are evaluating support providers

3. Learn how DMSO (a new IT services model) can manage much of the heavy lifting, allowing IT leaders to focus more on the big picture of their IT operations
