Join our hosts and your peers from across the industry for breakfast prior to the official opening of DCD>Connect London.

Date: Monday 2nd October

Time: 9.00am – 10.45am

Location: Cutty Sark Room, 2nd Floor, InterContinental Hotel London – the O2

As part of the DCD>Connect London series, Onnec is pleased to announce that we are joining forces with our key strategic partner, Vertiv, to deliver an engaging panel discussion: Why a holistic Data Centre design approach is critical to facing the challenges of AI?

In an age where Artificial Intelligence (AI) drives technological innovation, the traditional architecture of data centres is being compelled to evolve. Dive into an invitation-only breakfast panel discussing the need for a new, more holistic design paradigm to meet this challenge.

Key Takeaways:

  • Discover emerging holistic design principles that are not only optimizing current needs but also ensuring flexibility for the future.
  • Learn about the impact on investment strategies to make informed decisions for infrastructure that scales at speed and manages the demanding thermal loads.
  • Future-proof your framework: Go beyond contemporary requirements and prepare your data centre for both anticipated and unforeseen evolutions.

Following this debate we will hold two Interactive Roundtable Discussions: Fostering peer-discussion and developing peer-exchange and collaboration, these roundtable sessions will encourage delegates to share views and problem-solve in a relaxed environment.
