    LEADING NEW ICT
    Accelerating Cloud DC Revolution with ISP

    Huawei Pan-European ISP Summit June 12th

    Grimaldi Forum, Monaco

    With the rapid development of cloud computing, big data, and artificial intelligence: the demand for distributed resources, backups, etc. has increased dramatically; and more and more enterprises have enabled cloud services. The traditional ISP (Internet Service Provider) was announced to fully enter the transition phase of cloudization: the service goes to the cloud side; and the architecture transferring from the traditional data center to the cloud data center. Huawei, as a provider and innovator of cloud services and infrastructure, is committed to helping ISPs transform rapidly; building unified cloud management, application acceleration, agile distribution, and green energy-saving cloud data centers.

    To help ISPs accelerate the cloud transformation and grasp the current development opportunities, Huawei will hold a pan-European ISP summit "Accelerating cloud DC Revolution with ISP" at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco on June 12th, 2018. In this summit, Huawei will work with customers and partners to discuss the technological evolution and new business opportunities in the ISP transition. Inviting industry-leading analysts, Internet service providers and cloud data center service providers to share their unique views. Here, you will get the latest industry trends, collide and communicate with internet solution providers from different countries, and also learn about and experience Huawei's solutions and business cases in the ISP field.

  • Innovation for Impact: Driving the next 80% improvement in data center energy consumption

    Our research shows that today’s data centers are 80% more efficient than those built with technology from just 10 years ago. In the next decade, society will demand more computing power but will not tolerate an increased energy footprint. So, the strategies used in the past will no longer be adequate. The future will require data center disruption. We will examine technologies and bold ideas that may enable us to more fully utilize resources, improve resiliency, minimize energy consumption, and reduce carbon footprint to create the next 80 percent improvement.

    The iMasons lead a discussion of how the unprecedented growth in digital infrastructure has influenced society. Hear about the opportunities and threats as digital infrastructure continues to expand and underpin every aspect of human life
    Can the Center hold?
    Data Centers run counter to the decentralization trend – they are very centralized. Eventually everyone will be their own node in a peer to peer consensus based network. Can the Center hold in the context of the rising demand for a no latency life?
    Truth and lies in a connected world
    Centralized services have fallen short in terms of highly personalized relevancy and trust- we see this with Facebook’s algorithms that try to serve all users and their human clean-up efforts requiring an increase from 7500 to over 20000 hired content moderators. In the relentless march toward automation, is “human in the loop” still necessary as a check and balance to bad actors in the system?

    IoT and Artificial Intelligence are critical drivers of cloud and colocation business growth as well as data center performance. With incredible amounts of data processed, managed and analyzed within the data center and its supporting facility, cloud and service providers have an opportunity to deploy IoT solutions in their own data center architectures for competitive advantage. It’s not enough to put sensors on everything, but to be deliberate about what data to collect that will provide in-depth and actionable information for optimum data center operations to capture value.
    This session will look at the challenges faced by data center professionals and will explore how EcoStruxure IT, a vendor neutral cloud-based platform can : provide visibility, provide insights and facilitate an open platform

  • When the clouds part: How to better manage mixed data center environments

    Does the shift from on-premise, private clouds to co-location and public/hybrid clouds demand more visibility and operational control than you think you can deliver? Fortunately, data center management tools keep a vigil on power, thermal consumption, server health, and utilization, allowing better control no matter your cloud’s shape. In this session, learn how DCM enables real-time monitoring and precise management to lower operational costs and optimize infrastructure for today even as you’re forecasting for tomorrow.

  • Modules & Money – Predjudice in Adaptive Data Center Design

    'Modular Datacenter' is one of the industry's contemporary buzz topics. Not surprisingly of course, because in the rapidly maturing datacenter business, return on investment and pay as you grow are critical success factors. Adaptable designs – combining speed, minimum initial investment with maximum flexibility and growth – appear to be the Holy Grail of datacenter design.
    But what defines 'adaptable' and what is 'modular'? What approaches does the industry take and why? Are the goals achievable? How are traditional client-supplier relationships affected? Is the industry itself flexible enough to keep up with these new and demanding approaches?
    The Siemens Center of Competence Datacenters has a broad experience with adaptable datacenter designs, big and small. In their contribution to this Theme Day, they will share their experience and hopefully provide some sapience in the process.

  • Data Center technologies for the data explosion in traditional industries

    Data processing is growing around the globe due to increased use of digitalization in products, services and business processes. The use of 5G, IoT, machine learning and automation in the traditional industry will lead to a network of distributed compute power. Industries and society will accelerate offerings and services with AI, Artificial Intelligence. It requires data collection, aggregation, real-time analytics, control loops and background batch processing. It will be a competitive advantage to excel in machine learning for products and services. Centrally in the network the mega-size datacenters will be placed close to inexpensive renewable power production. In society centers there will be mid-sized datacenters and on the edge of the network in malls, in arenas, by highways, on city streets and at industry plants it will be small sized compute containers. All of them need to be well integrated in the electrical and thermal grids and optimized for low overhead maximizing compute per kWh. This leads to a diverse set of requirements on design and operations. Autonomous operation, software resiliency, liquid cooling, heat re-use applications and datacenter micro grid integration are key areas.

  • Successful Datacentre Cooling Design - “How to win an Award“

    The Isando Data Centre 7 is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Each floor has a net cooling capacity of 2 MW, supplied by a chilled water system which is concurrently maintainable, with three CyberCool 2 chillers (N+1) and 14 CyberAir 3 chilled water units from STULZ GmbH. Due to extremely hot summers, the ambient temperature reaches up to 40°C.
    Maximum levels of guaranteed uptime, stringent security and optimal operating conditions must be in place at all times. In order to achieve this, the cooling infrastructure must ensure the highest levels of reliability, often in high temperatures, but without compromising on energy efficiency. This case study is basically about, what and how we did it.

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?

  • Disentangling the data centre ‘skills shortage’ conundrum

    Is it a capability issue, is it a diversity issue or is it an sector ‘brand’ issue? Or all three?

  • Data Centers Talk – We Translate What They Say

    In data centers, power and HVAC data are heterogeneous, complex, generated continuously and scattered everywhere: from individual sensors and meters to PDUs, from management stations to endless spreadsheets. How to focus attention to only what is essential, how to predict potential failures, how to save time and money through data transparency and analytics? By simply monitoring it all on your smartphone or PC!
