The Greater Toronto Area is the fifth most populous metro market in North America and is Canada’s business and financial capital; five of the country’s largest financial institutions call Toronto home for their headquarters operations. Data centers located in the GTA serve users from Newfoundland to the East and Vancouver to the West, 5.5 time zones away. Increasingly, because of “data sovereignty”, security and privacy, both Canadian and international interests seek to store and manage their data in Canada. It’s no surprise then that Toronto and its neighboring cities, together known as the “Golden Horseshoe,” comprise a prolific, high-value data center regional cluster and sought-after location for new data center builds. A new report just published by DatacenterDynamics (DCD) Intelligence research draws on data from its global data center census for a special analytical report, authored by Toronto-based Insight-as-a-Service principal analyst Michael O’Neil, to statistically paint the picture as to how influential this region’s data center sector is to the global industry. This conference celebrated the growth and achievements of one of the most dynamic data center industry markets on the planet.
DCD Converged Toronto 2014 is now history; but the buzz continues as this event played host to a stellar roster of speakers who led in-depth, thought-leading discussions at this three hall event, including a lively and thought provoking breakfast roundtable discussion and concluded with a one-of-a-kind cocktail reception.

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.
