Visibility for higher impact

We have been very active at different events lately to increase our impact of our work in the datacenter industry.

November 13-14 Data Centre World 2019 was organized in Frankfurt. One session with Jon Summers as participant was called “The Boden Type Data Centre: Is this really the most efficient data centre in the World? “

The project houses over 300kW of Open Compute Project and HPC equipment at a PUE of <1.01.  The panellists discussed how the experience gained in this project could be applied to other IT operations.  Can this project also present serious opportunities for the server manufacturers?

Then we participated at DataCentres Ireland: Meet the Market, Nov 19-20. Jon had a presentation about the BTDC Project – Update and Lessons Learned. Then he participated in a panel discussion – Open Compute Projects and their impact on Data Centre Design and Operation. Finally Mattias Vesterlund contributed to a panel about District Heat Networks.

The event Datacenter Forum took place in Stockholm Nov 28. Here Tor Björn Minde and Jeanette Nilsson represented SDIA and helped with moderating one session track.

At Datacloud Nordic, that celebrates its 5th anniversary, on Dec 3 in Copenhagen the region’s digital infrastructure leadership was gathered. Tor Björn Minde held a presentation on “Smart cities and 5G-edge: the implications for industry and wider society”. He also was in a panel discussion: Designing data centres fit for the future: meeting the scale & density challenge.
