Registration and Breakfast in the Expo Hall
Sep 15 2015
The data center has often been regarded as a bastion for consistency, reliability and stability but the introduction of software-defined has entirely transformed the way how networks in DCs function, with virtualization now a key foundation to cloud computing, servers and infrastructure. Is moving towards a software-defined driven DC anytime in the near future in Southeast Asia and how can operators ensure that all of the different components of a DC are working together as one big family in a trouble-free environment?
What are data center end-users looking for specifically when making their decision to locate data centers: green vs price vs connectivity? What stories do existing capacity and growth projections for the region tell us? And how can developers, contractors and technology providers best serve these requirements going forward?
Join us and other top professionals in the industry as we uncover market demand dynamics with a long-term vision for South East Asia’s data center economy.
This session is by invitation only and takes place in Idea Labs 1, Room 3E.

This private lunch briefing will bring together a high-level select profile of IT and data center professionals to discuss the future of the data center, the emergence and popularity of the micro data center and the cost vs benefits of moving into this in an era of limited computing resources. Learn how you can minimize making poor decisions in oversizing infrastructure to future-proof against uncertainty. Also pick up ideas on how you can add and improve capacity in a quicker manner, reduce latency, and enable secure ongoing management through edge computing.

Our panel of experts explore the challenge of what availability means to data center end-users and operators in today's rapidly changing environments. Does a software-defined world no longer need highly engineered environments? Is the Tier Classification system still relevant? Is software eating the world and dispensing with need for costly redundant systems?
