Datacentre Transformation Conference 9th July 2013, Leeds, UK

Leeds has been the successful host of two previous joint Data Centre Alliance, Datacentre Solutions Magazine and The University of Leeds Data Centre Conferences in 2011 and 2012. Preparation of the third Datacentre Transformation Conference (DTC13) to take place on July 9th, 2013 is well underway. This year, DTC13 will be in a new exhibition centre over the Leeds based data centre at aql, where, for this memorable event, the venue has a glass floor giving a clear view of the data centre below.

 

Date: 20150904

DTC13 will have a range of industrial and academic presentations, with a particular emphasis on efficiency and sustainability of this incredibly important industry to Europe.

In addition to the new technologies, research and development there will be sessions on standards and the outlooks of newly EU and government funded projects.

The conference has two keynote speakers:

 


“Energy efficiency and climate change policy for the data centre industry”. Presented by Emma Fryer, Intellect UK
The presentation will outline the main climate change policy instruments in the UK and what their objectives are in terms of the kind of behaviour they aim to drive in organisations and the efficiencies and carbon savings that they aim to deliver. Emma Fryer will take a look at the impacts these measures have had on changing behaviour in data centres and explore the reasons why some measures have been less successful than others or where the introduction of policy tools has led to unintended consequences. She will also take a quick look at some systemic issues that currently undermine the policy making process and address some of the challenges that data centres face regarding energy efficiency. Finally, Emma will identify some of the energy myths that are circulated about data centres and the way they use power and what we are doing to set the record straight.


“Data centre energy efficiency analysis”. Presented by Dr Robert Tozer, Operational Intelligence
Economic and policy pressures are driving data centres to improve their efficiency. There are many opportunities to design for high efficiency and also to implement improvements to legacy facilities. Energy analysis can identify areas for improvement, often with short payback periods, particularly for cooling systems, through improving management of data hall air, operating at higher temperatures, using free cooling and optimising for part load operation. This enables operators to realise massive reductions in energy (and sometimes capital) costs, whilst still delivering a reliable service.

It is not too late to contribute to the conference as the deadline of the submission of abstracts for the consideration of presentation is
29th April 2013.
