Australasia Cloud & Datacenter Awards Summit 2021

[Online] Thurs, 9th Sep 2021, 9am – 11am (GMT + 10)

The Australia and New Zealand Cloud & Datacenter markets are a hotbed of innovation, and now is your chance to catch the top professionals in the region’s IT sphere as they discuss their top achievements in the past year, and what exciting developments are on the horizon.

This exclusive Summit on 9th September will focus on all things cloud, data, and cybersecurity in Australasia. As part of our ongoing Awards Season, we will highlight different projects and categories of achievement, as well as talk to local experts about how their sector has shifted in the past year.

The Australian and New Zealand Data Center industries are riding the wave of investment that has been sweeping through the APAC region, with current estimations anticipating a 4.5% CAGR over the next 5 years. Throughout the ANZ region, there is a renewed sense of urgency surrounding the connectivity and infrastructure delivered to more remote and rural areas of these two countries. The geographic considerations and demand for low-latency solutions has broadened the market beyond hubs like Sydney or Auckland with new data centers and edge networks expanding rapidly through the region. Areas like Perth or Canberra are seeing increased investment due to low costs and high space availability.

Want to know more?. Join us as we dissect the remarkable developments of Australasia in a series exclusive of keynote presentations, panel discussions, and 1-on-1 interviews. This is a digital event and will be attended by IT experts from around the world, so be sure to register ASAP to secure your spot.
