  • Panel Discussion: Finance and Investment – Infrastructure Projects in the Nordics and Europe
    Recent years have seen unprecedented M&A activity in the data center infrastructure landscape. Our panel take a critical look at the emerging picture considering some of the key deals we have observed, market valuation and portfolio development. How do business models impact the attractiveness of a deal? Are we converging toward a tightly consolidated market? What is the future for independent or small data centers?

  • Panel Discussion: How is the Edge Shaping the Center?
    Technologies such as IoT and a plethora of connected devices, objects and sensors have pushed compute demands to the periphery of the network. Enabled by emerging technologies such as AI and blockchain, edge infrastructures are able to deliver compute capacity locally in latency critical, data intensive environments. New delivery and infrastructure models are required to ensure the edge and centre work in unison. Our panel discusses these new models and consider what it means for existing compute delivery strategies.

  • Panel Discussion: Questioning the ‘Cloud First’ Paradigm
    ‘Cloud First’ has become something of a mantra in headlines. However, what is the reality of embarking on a cloud strategy? Is cloud always the answer to driving down cost and increased availability? Our panel discusses different strategies in engaging with cloud services and when, perhaps it might pay to stay firmly rooted on terra firma.

  • Panel Discussion: Energy Sourcing and Strategy
    As large and increasingly scrutinised consumers of energy, data centers are under great pressure to improve their sustainability credentials. What is the current best practice in sourcing and managing energy consumption? What is the impact of integrating renewable energy on pricing and operational cost? What options are available to hyperscales vs enterprise operators and those deploying infrastructure at smaller scale? How can heat recovery improve the energy efficiency of data centers? What innovations should we look towards to drive long-term sustainability for the data center sector globally?
