The Datacentres Europe 2013 event will take place in Nice, France on May 29-30. The event, run by BroadGroup, is focused on end users in vertical markets and the data centre and IT infrastructure they use.
BroadGroup research forecasts that strong vertical market demand will drive growth in outsourcing to third-party data centres in Europe, but this still leaves approximately 70 percent of the market that has not yet outsourced by 2016. However, the consulting firm also believes that this linear perspective of the market will largely disappear as the computing environment changes. BroadGroup’s research suggests that IT departments emerge as cloud brokers, hosting applications across a range of datacentres and distributed architectures. Businesses will be offered a flexible menu of options, automated and on demand. For data centres and users, this dénouement brings a completely new set of challenges and opportunities.
Sponsors of the event include Schneider Electric, Hewlett Packard, Bird & Bird, eco Verband der deutschen Internetwirtschaft e.V., APL, MigSolv, Cofely GDF Suez, Invest in Iceland, Scholzegruppe, Future Facilities, ABB, Bouygues, EBRC, DEF, Scottish Development International, Conteg, Smacs, Partner Organizations are the European Data Centre Association (EUDCA) and CESIT. Industry Partners include Colo-X, Colo Research, Globeron and EPI.
The event includes an industry exhibition with more than 70 companies represented.
