DatacenterDynamics annual census consistently points to the fact that datacentres represent a sizeable and growing industry in the Middle East with an ever increasing demand for power, space, skilled manpower, investment and optimisation. The Middle East market saw 18% growth in investment in Facility equipment, 7.5% in IT Optimisation and 16.7% in Managed Services in 2013, summing up to an enormous amount of USD 1.22 billion. This clearly proves that datacentres are not only evolving rapidly but also taking up more pivotal roles in the core business operations within their organisations. With growing investment focus on new technologies, cloud and big data are anticipated to usher in a revolution in the industry.
The sudden surge of data creation and use are increasingly posing new challenges as the volume of it becomes too huge to handle. Due to this huge volume of data, enormous storage and bandwidth resources are required. As an industry, datacenters are experiencing a shift towards more flexible, efficient and reliable network solutions. The explosion of data is forcing an end to the traditional network with market analysts predicting 80% of network traffic to flow from server to server by 2014. It is then most obvious to expect organisations in the Middle East to graduate towards making successful use of easily adaptable and cost efficient technologies.
With nearly 10 billion devices connected to the internet globally and predictions of exponential growth in the Middle East, the industry has reached a point where the space, power and cost demands of traditional technologies are no longer sustainable. It is time to stop, ponder and to gauge the current capacities against future needs.

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.
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.
