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 â€¦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 â€˜The Shape of the Cloud to Comeâ€™ 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.
