On November 10th and 11th I will be speaking on two panels at the Data Center Dynamics event in London. The theme for the two day event is Carbon: Risk or Opportunity. In the morning, On Day One, I am speaking in a panel entitled The Data Center Efficiency Schism …New Realities in Design with Ed Ansett from HP/EYP and my old friend Lex Coors from Interxion. The afternoon has me on another panel with Liam Newcombe with the British Computer Society entitled ‘The Shape of the Cloud to Come’ moderated by Data Center Dynamics CTO, Stephen Worn. Liam and I have passion for this space and our past conversations on this topic in particular and other related topics have been quite entertaining (or so I have been told). To top it off, this panel is moderated by Stephen who is not known for being timid either, so I am really looking forward to the discussion there.
The entire event should be quite super-charged especially given the recent Carbon Reduction Commitment legislation in the UK. For those of you keeping a close eye on the emerging impact of carbon legislation across the world this event is likely to source a number of lightning rods and thought leadership to watch out for.
If you have not signed up and will be in London, I would strongly encourage you to do so. As always if you happen to see me wandering about, please feel free to stop and chat awhile.
