Data Centre Forum Copenhagen 2018
20 Sep 2018, Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel
With such so many data centre standards available, how can companies understand which ones to follow? Whether you’re considering a colocation service provider or planning your own data center build, standards are everything. Without quantifying how a facility will perform in terms of infrastructure, cooling, power, security, and reliability, it can be difficult to make informed decisions.
Learn everything about benchmarking data centre facilities and operations with EPI Chairman & CEO, Edward van Leent. In this presentation, Edward would share insights into the confusing world of data centre standards and guidelines and how it can help you protect your interests, whether you are a data centre owner/operator or customer.
