New investments and modernisation are making Québec an emerging data centre hub
Gifted with abundant and cheap low carbon electricity, a climate which enables the exploitation of free cooling and an advanced communications infrastructure, Montréal is attracting increasingly significant levels of local and international investment in new data centres and IT mission critical infrastructure.
However, constrained by the continual rise in capacity demand, data center operators and users of data centre services face critical strategic decisions regarding their investment infrastructure and IT strategies. The challenge of meeting new capacity and service demands whilst adapting legacy systems is especially problematic.
In response to these challenges, CIOs and Data Centre Managers are turning to new developments in automation, IT optimisation, renovation and integration of new technologies into existing facilities. Further, advances in new outsourcing and Cloud models are forcing decision makers to consider how they can exploit these developments to reduce their Capex whilst conserving the flexibility to respond to new market demands.
DatacenterDynamics Montréal will unveil the best strategies developed by data centre and IT professionals to overcome these challenges. By participating in this event, you will be able to exploit the experiences of the best of your peers and competitors in order to improve your own infrastructure and IT deployment strategies and mitigate the associated risks of these new investments.

Key topics:

DatacenterDynamics Converged
As the transformation of the data centre continues, IT, the physical layer, and the plant supporting it are becoming increasingly integrated. Together, the CIO, IT manager and data center manager must consider how IT and physical infrastructure can be optimized for efficiency and productivity in the face of increasing complexity, as well as the role of outsourcing in service provision strategy.
DatacenterDynamics Converged recognizes the need for cross-disciplinary cooperation in the data centre. From site selection and construction to outsourcing strategy and regulation through to how best to deliver the infrastructure for your mission-critical infrastructure - DatacenterDynamics Converged reflects the interaction of the following three elements for optimum data centre operation and management:
Design, Build, Operate
Design, Build, Operate focuses on every part of the mission-critical facility lifecycle. From site selection and engineering design through to power availability and full data center automation; this is a must attend event for any organisation embarking on a new data center project or operating existing facilities.
Outsourcing Decisions
For every decision to build a data center there is one to outsource. From collocation to Platform-as-a-Service, from Software-as-a-Service, to building your data center capacity in the cloud, what are the options most appropriate to your organization? This conference theme explores an enterprise's strategic options for data center outsourcing, weighing up the economic benefits, the risks and the performance characteristics against those of doing it yourself.
IT Optimisation
The efficiency of the facility is only half the equation – optimizing all the systems that run within it is crucial: from processing to storage, to network to application. The ITO conference stream provides insight on how IT needs drive data center strategy and how that impacts infrastructure requirements.
Who should attend?
DatacenterDynamics Converged Montréal is specifically designed to fulfil the knowledge and networking needs for both those responsible for the design, build an operation of IT facilities as well as key IT decision makers responsible for strategic decisions regarding capacity planning and technology investment.

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.
