Enhancing Hong Kong's Competitiveness Through Data Centre and Cloud Computing - Trends and Policies

Honorable Charles Mok, JP , Legislative Councilor, Information Technology Functional Constituency, Hong Kong SAR

With today’s technology enhancement it is essential for business corporate to maintain their competitive edge using cloud computing and big data as handy tools. Integrating big data into operations and business development while keeping costs low can help meeting business growth, but taking care of security, privacy and compliance matters in cloud computing could be a headache. Hon Charles Mok will remark on how policies and laws can facilitate maintaining standard and reliability of cloud services through a relevant and adequate guidance, and enhance Hong Kong’s competitiveness in data center development.

DeRUPSTM : Intelligent Control, Secure Power - Combining Rotary UPS Reliability with Infinite Flexibility

Muthuraman Palaniappan, Director, Business Unit , Piller Power Singapore Pte Ltd

To protect mission critical facilities against power outages the installation of uninterruptible powers supplies (UPS) is the standard method.
Usually long and short term outages need to be bridged and so UPS systems are complemented with external Diesel generators ordirectly combined with a diesel engine in a Diesel Rotary UPS(DRUPS). The combination of Rotary UPS (RUPS) and external Diesel generators is a tried and tested solution with an installed base of approaching 1000 MVA. Because of the distinct advantages with this combination, some of the most recent high profile and major Tier III and Tier IV data centres use this technology. With the latest release of RUPS, the system designer can realise an unprecedented multiple of configurations in conjunction with extremely high efficiencies even at the lower loads often encountered in early-life data centres.
This presentation focusses on the general requirements for a Diesel Generator to be combined with Rotary UPS and shows a variety of combinations that provide an increased maintainability as well as an extended choice of engines and can be realized in low voltage as well as in medium voltage. Additionally the presentation describes how the Diesel generator can be integrated into the controls of a Rotary UPS to build a powerful and multifunctional system, which is named a DeRUPS (Diesel electrically coupled Rotary UPS). This integration allows the use of external Dieselgenerators in more complex designs like IP-Systems[1] while keeping the advantages coming with the physical separation of UPS and Diesel.

Panel Discussion: How can DCIM Cut Operational Costs and Manage the Virtualization of IT Infrastructure? Will it Truly Deliver its Promise?

Eric Fung, Director, Chung Hing Engineers Group Giles Proctor, VP, Data Centre Services , Pacnet at Telstra Jonathan Price, Director, Norman Disney & Young Ronnie Tsang, Accredited Instructor, DCProfessional Development Stephen Woollard, Regional Engineering Director, Asia Pacific, Jones Lang LaSalle

Data centers are increasingly adopting virtualization and reaping the benefits of cloud computing, and in the process adding additional layers of complexity to the physical infrastructure. Balancing supply and demand is no longer a simple task, and many companies have identified data center infrastructure management (DCIM) as the tool to bridge the gap between facilities and IT. Hear industry leaders' take on DCIM – deployment, operations, lifecycle management and whether in practice DCIM will ever really live up to the hype.
