     Lyon – at the crossroads of new data centre strategies

In order to remain competitive, data centre operators are being forced to continually develop their data centre infrastructure to support the growth of new services, but are having to do this in a constrained economic environment. What are the best infrastructure investment strategies and new operational tactics they can develop to support new service growth while maintaining profitability?
Lyon carrefour

The conference will be held in Lyon - crossroads between the centres of Swiss, French and Italian economic activity and the heart of the Rhone-Alps region – the fifth largest regional GDP in Europe and home to a diverse range of international technology companies.

Thanks to its location, advanced communications infrastructure and established networks of international companies, the region is witnessing continued investment growth in new enterprises. This is especially true for technology companies operating in sectors such as engineering, biotechnology, logistics and, in particular, Information Technology.

Despite the overall positive economic outlook, data centre operators are being forced to develop ever more competitive strategies to support new service growth against a background of rising operational costs.  Further, they face the challenge of optimising Total Cost of Ownership for legacy and new infrastructure whilst accurately predicting how operational costs will change, and doing so without compromising their flexibility to respond to future service needs.

DatacenterDynamics Lyon will reveal the most successful strategies being developed to overcome these challenges by operators from the Rhone-Alps, other regions in France and francophone Switzerland. The event will enable participants to benefit from the experience of their peers and competitors, allowing them to improve their own infrastructure deployment strategies and minimise the risks associated with their new infrastructure investments.

At DatacenterDyanmics Lyon you will discover how to:

  • Exploit the latest advances in automation to improve the performance of your data centre
  • Develop strategies to optimise Total Cost of Ownership, without compromising flexibility and scalability
  • Evaluate the benefits and the risks of deploying modular solutions
  • Develop, test and integrate a Disaster Recovery Plan into your existing operational structure
  • Understand the scope and limitations of free cooling in new and existing facilities
  • Develop show to develop a hybrid strategy externalisation strategy to cost effectively support new capacity requirements
  • Evaluate the impact of Cloud Computing and Virtualisation on the development and operation of your data centre
  • Maximise the performance per Watt of your data centre without compromising the demands of availability and flexibility
A Single Focal Point - Access to Multiple Resources

DatacenterDynamics Conference & Expo Lyon is the only event that brings together senior data centre professionals from across the region and beyond to debate and discuss these and other issues, allowing you to benchmark your data centre operation and evolution strategies against those of your peers and competitors. Combined with an expo of leading international technology innovators, the one day multi-streamed, case study focused format represents a time-efficient means of accessing an intelligence-rich resource that will enable you to develop and implement strategies to reduce your operational costs and improve your data centre's performance.

Viewing presentations after a DatacenterDynamics conference

Registered attendees of an event are able to access the majority of the material presented after an event. We are introducing a new system - PresentationPLAYBACK - which enables you to listen to a full sound recording of the session along with the PowerPoint and any associated movies in a single file.

You will therefore need to have a recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer in order to view them (Google Chrome Users need not worry about this, as it's pre-built-in). Although we now endeavour to record all presentations in this format, occasionally - for technical reasons beyond our control - it is not possible to fully capture all sessions; in such cases you will only be able to view a PDF.

To access PresentationPLAYBACK you must be signed into your account. Click on the MyDCD button on the top navigation panel which will take you to your personal homepage - on the right hand column you will find an area headed 'My Presentations'. Here are listed the conferences you have access to (see access and restrictions below). The links will take you to the programme page of that conference, and by clicking on a session you will be taken to the individual conference asset where you will find the feature. Alternatively you can navigate to the conference site you wish and acess the file directly from there - remember you must be signed in.

DatacenterDynamics Conference sessions with this feature available will display the PresentationPLAYBACK icon:

The player is simple to use. Click on the play button for automatic playback, or advance through the slides.

Access and restrictions

The conference presentations you can view depend on your membership level. Silver members only have access to those from the events they have actually attended, whilst Gold members have access to presentation materials from all our events around the world.
