About this talk

Data Centre design is an evolutionary process and we can see the first signs of significant change in the latest sites. Co-generation, liquid cooling, cloud computing, high density are all likely to feature in the 2020 Data Centre. How are you placed with your existing Data Centre investments to take advantage of these changes? Will 20th Century Data Centres have to close because they just can't deliver the level of efficiency that government legislation and economics demands?
