Pan-Asian Internet Data Centre Leadership To Gather At Regional Forum In Singapore Wednesday 20 June 2007 PDF Print London & Singapore, 20 June 2007 – International consultancy BroadGroup, has announced the first regional level Internet Data Centre Conference will take place in Singapore 27-28 September 2007, at the Pan-Pacific Hotel (www.datacentres.com/idca). BroadGroup, who produced a report last year on the evolution of data centres across 11 countries in the region, found that competition at regional level is intensifying. The two most critical factors of Power and Cooling are however presenting significant challenges as user transaction demand is accelerating and MNCs continue to move into Asia. In addition, global pressures to reduce carbon emissions, curtail energy requirements, introduce green technologies and comply with a raft of legislative and regulatory requirements, now demands new thinking about the future of data centre businesses. IDCA will help to answer many of the critical questions including business models, investment decisions, markets, pricing and cost trends, issues of security, content, evolving user requirements, as well as virtualisation, power and cooling. A special Green Workshop will also feature in the event. Sponsors of the event already include Tyco Electronics / AMP Netconnet, Active Power and Force 10 Networks. “As a truly Asian networking hub, IDCA 07 will be the largest regional gathering of data centre leadership at a time of increased growth in the sector,” commented Philip Low, managing director of BroadGroup. “The sheer range of challenges and critical factors impacting future expansion presents the new regional forum with much to consider and discuss. Bringing together Asian providers and users will facilitate a compelling opportunity for everyone in this growing sector.” IDCA is the first Asian event for Data Centres, and follows on from the annual event, now in its fourth year, which BroadGroup organises in Europe. Established five years ago, BroadGroup conducts research and consulting projects, publishes market reports and the acclaimed monthly newsletter, Data Centre News, owns a number of industry focused portals, and also researches and produces specialist events including the regional Data Centre and Telecom Finance series. The company will shortly be moving to larger headquarters in Surrey. Further information on the event can be found at www.datacentres.com/idca.
