21-22 July, Singapore

Data Centers are evolving—fast. They are no longer massive reservoirs of data that only large enterprises can afford. Today’s Data Centers are integrated, Cloud-enabled, always connected, and scalable.

 

Many are now rented, with services subscribed, enabling even small organizations to build their own Data Center infrastructures.

 

Data Centers of the future will incorporate large sensor networks to monitor the environment and ensure operational continuity and energy efficiency. They will also integrate Big Data analytics for performance monitoring to enable fast and accurate forecasting of Data Center issues. Through these intelligent, automatic and self-managed Data Centers, organizations will have new powers to create and deliver IT services with the speed, reliability, and efficiency demanded by their customers.

 

More importantly, Smart Data Centers drive dynamic IT strategies that require both a traditional solid and stable IT infrastructure together with a modern agile revenue-oriented architecture. Such future Data Centers are no longer considered as cost centers but are revenue-generating facilities that can sharpen your competitive edge in today’s digital economy.
