Data Centre Efficiency & DCIM Theatre

Thu 6th Oct 11:00 to 11:30

Why IoT Requires a Different Approach to Data Centre Design

Internet of Things (IoT) is dramatically changing the way data centres are designed and deployed. Right now, two levels of compute are emerging: an edge layer (e.g. micro data centres) and a core layer (e.g. hyper scale data centres). Minkels believes that each layer needs a different approach to data centre infrastructure. Only then can the right level of flexibility and efficiency be obtained to ensure a consistent optimal performance throughout the infrastructure’s life span and at the lowest possible cost of ownership.

What you will take away from this session

  • Learn more about IoT
  • Discover the impact of IoT on data centres and data centre infrastructure
  • Learn more about the core and the edge layer and their specific needs in terms of data centre infrastructure
  • Design and build future proof data centres at the lowest cost of ownership
