Dates and venue announced for 2016 Data Centres North conference and exhibition


The event is applicable to everyone from those involved with smaller server-rooms and coms-rooms to the staff responsible for Operations, NOC, IT, Networking and Facilities Management, at large co-location, corporate and cloud data centres.
Data Centres North 2016 will be held at the home of Lancashire County Cricket Club – Manchester’s world-famous Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground and conference centre. This refreshingly intimate venue adds to the quality of the conference – and the ability to have unhurried and high quality conversations with vendors and the speakers makes Data Centres North 2016 well worth taking time to visit.
Supported by the Data Centre Alliance, British Computer Society Data Centre SIG, techUK, Datacentres.ME, DCN, NCN an and other influential organisations, The Data Centres North 2016 Conference has three main streams:
Strategy Stream – This Conference Stream, which operates throughout the two full conference days will focus on the the highly important Northern Regional Strategy including Development Drivers, Market Drivers, Finance, People and Opportunities.
Operations Stream – Covering the whole remit of design and operations from the latest updates on standards, the relevance (or otherwise) of PUE in smaller data centres and server rooms, and all of the hardware and services from cabling through cooling, power, UPS, monitoring, DCIM, Construction Products Regulation & how it applied to DCs, Codes and Standards.
Mission Critical Stream – The data centre is a critical element of many mission-critical organisations.
Many of those organisations, for example, nuclear, pharmaceutical, mining, petrochemical, healthcare and of course banking and finance have long-term experience and expertise in running mission-critical operations.
The Mission Critical Stream at Data Centres North 2016 will look at what we in the data centre fraternity can learn from the hard-learned secrets to success that those businesses are kindly willing to share for the greater good.
Said Steve Hone, CEO of the Data Centre Alliance, ‘The needs and drivers of data centres North of London are decidedly different. Manchester is the longest standing second capital of data centres but it is now joined by significant concentrations in Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and a growing list of other cities. It is essential that this specialist community has its own dedicated conferences and exhibitions – we are pleased to support this and all such initiatives.’
