Over 1000 delegates expected to attend as DatacenterDynamics stages its 5th and largest to date annual conference and expo

London, England – To celebrate the fifth year of its pioneering London conference, DataCenterDynamics has announced an expanded and updated programme for their 2006 conference, to be held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel on 28th and 29th November 2006.

Anticipating a over 1000 delegates, DatacenterDynamics London 2006 will bring together a ‘Who’s Who’ of those involved in the design, construction and management of data centres. Over two days delegates are provided with a streamed choice of over 40 sessions covering a wide range of issues and technologies that affect data centre professionals. The event is supported by the Carbon Trust, in addition to industry bodies including the British Institute of Facilities Managers (BiFM) and the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).

With five years’ experience gained in 14 global business centres, DatacenterDynamics draws together experts from all relevant fields - whether technical, managerial, design/construction focused or analytic – in order to establish the largest forum of data centre professionals at a global, regional and local level.

DatacenterDynamics events are recognised for creating an environment where knowledge can be transferred and exchanged easily and memorably, and where delegates are able to learn in a practical and hands-on fashion. The seminar programme qualifies for CPD points, for all those working towards professional qualifications.

The industry network that DatacenterDynamics has established will help delegates to come to grips with perennial issues and those emerging to impact the industry over the coming 18 to 24 months. Highlights at this year’s London event will include keynote addresses from HP, IBM and ,Intel’s own datacentres chief architects. In a comprehensive conference programme, internationally acknowledged experts will share their insights and best practices across four themes defined through our industry networks as mission-critical:

* "The Power Gap": Rising energy costs are forcing the hand of all facility operators to run their systems more efficiently. These sessions will explore how efficiencies can be made from chips, to kit, to racks to rows to rooms. Attention will also be paid to inter-departmental cooperation where IT can help facilities through virtualisation, consolidation and utility computing.

* “Automating Out” Failure: Data centre monitoring and control can be viewed with two distinct models, one IT led the other FM led. A key to success in averting failure is system integration - easier said than done! Over the two-day schedule our presenters will address the current and emerging technologies, as well as the complex integration requirements. Systems discussed will include: intelligent building systems, OSS, BMS, NMS, security, maintenance and facilities management software, condition-based monitoring, energy monitoring, fire alarms and intruder detection and virtual data centre simulation.

* “Strategy and Thought Leadership”: From design and capacity planning, the short term fix to the future proof data centre, expert consultants and end-users from both home and abroad will furnish delegates with lessons learnt and best practices through case studies, research and planned projects.

* “Adaptive Solutions”: From intelligent racking systems, modular engineering and adaptive cooling to cutting-edge fibre management systems, leading experts will show case the latest design methods being deployed for maximum advantage in the various different build scenarios.

Since its inception, The DatacenterDynamics Conference and Expo series has been expanded to include 14 conferences, and now represents the most comprehensive global programme for those involved in data centre design, construction and operations. During 2006 the series has visited key business locations around the globe including New York, San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Dubai, Mumbai, Bangalore, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney.

The infrastructure exposition that runs alongside the conference will bring together over 50 of the data center specific infrastructure vendors and services companies operating in the region, including APC, HP, Rittal, Emerson, Afco Systems, GDCM, Avocent and AF Switchgear. Other sponsors include Future Facilities, EYP Mission Critical Facilities, Siemon, Tyco Electronics, Global Switch, Alfred McAlpine, Mitie and ABB.

Infrastructure manufacturers are encouraged to bring their equipment along to the Expo for demonstration purposes, so that delegates will have a hands-on opportunity to see these technologies in operation.

George Rockett, Conference Producer, DataCenterDynamics said; “The emphasis on effective data centre cost management is far greater than it has been in the past. Of key concern is the identification and elimination of excess cost elements, in particular those associated with spiraling energy charges and insufficient security provision. The DatacenterDynamics programme addresses how businesses can successfully deploy, monitor and integrate their data centre infrastructure to meet key business objectives and at the same time maintain the service quality and availability imperative to compete in a modern economy. We believe the event will provide a unique platform for debate and knowledge sharing for every individual working within the enterprise and service provider data centre”

DataCenterDynamics London 2006 will be held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel on November 28-29th. For more information please call +44 (0)207 426 4849, or email Dan Scarbrough at or Damien Wells on
