IXEurope sponsors major power and cooling summit for datacentre users

Following the unusually hot summer, IXEurope, one of Europe's largest and fastest growing independent datacentre operators with 14 datacentres in the UK, Germany, France and Switzerland, is proud to announce its involvement in the largest summit in Europe for power and cooling issues in datacentre environments.

The inaugural Power and Cooling for Data Centres Summit 2006 brings together datacentre players and leading experts to address these issues and share valuable intelligence and knowledge to support strategic power and cooling decisions.

Guy Willner, CEO of IXEurope commented:

“Of all challenges currently confronting datacentres, as they continue to achieve continued growth, those of power and cooling characterise the most concerning and perhaps the most difficult to resolve in the short term. As servers become more complex and power-hungry, some enterprise datacentres simply cannot provide sufficient power or cooling.”

“We look forward to sharing the ways in which the managed datacentre industry is helping its customers to improve power efficiency for the latest technologies, particularly in extreme conditions.”

Researched and produced by BroadGroup, the event is taking place on the 25 - 26 October at the London Paddington Hilton Hotel. Visit http://www.datacentres.com/pac/ for further information.
