Bangalore Cloud & Datacenter Show Returns this July 2022
Data centres are turning out to be the new reservoirs of the states. Policy measures, a growing client base, and expanding corporate data storage requirements are all propelling India to become the “next destination” for data centres. DC operators should expect a surge in demand for data centre space as digital consumption habits such as online gaming, online education, streaming, e-commerce, and total internet hits expand. As the customer base for data consumption in these many industries grows, the need for new data centres grows as well. In the coming years, technology and automation will play a crucial role in the growing demand for DCS.
Bangalore is renowned as India’s Silicon Valley, with an estimated GDP of more than US$110 billion. One-third of India’s IT exports come from the city, and its IT and data centre infrastructure is secure, intelligent, and scalable. Bangalore is a developed and prosperous city that is known for being the birthplace of information technology. Many great answers already cover most of the points as to why Bengaluru became the biggest IT hub in India. Though the rise in DCs in other Indian states has impacted the state’s DC ecosystem, Banglore’s data centres still play a very imperative role in uplifting the country’s IT ecosystem. Post COVID-19, as India is going through some profound changes in incentivising DCs and are transforming the country’s entrepreneurial set-up, one of the country’s most sought-after afters state should also undergo a transformation – the data centres of the future should be built today!
Join us at the Bangalore cloud & Data Centre Convention where thought leaders discuss how to leverage the existing and upcoming network of data centre infrastructure, cloud computing, a disaster data recovery centre, and a lot more.

Disrupting Bengaluru’s IT Hub With Future-Ready Data Centres
Many great answers already cover most of the points as to why Bengaluru became the biggest IT hub in India. Though the rise in DCs in other Indian states has impacted the state’s DC ecosystem, Bengaluru's data centres still play a very imperative role in uplifting the country’s IT ecosystem. Post COVID-19, India is going through some profound changes when it comes to incentivising DCs and is transforming the country’s entrepreneurial setup. One of the country’s most sought-after states, Bangalore - India’s Silicon Valley, should also transform - get future-ready data centres to positively disrupt the market - the future data centers should be built today! This power panel will discuss the focus on how to create the demand and value for future-ready data centres, by providing a robust and well-connected ecosystem for the growth of data centres in the state, especially owning to the approved policy by the Karnataka Cabinet that aims to attract investments worth Rs 10,000 crore by 2025.

Preparing the DCs For The Earth’s Newest Climate
Climate is changing, and while the data centre business must do all possible to avoid contributing to it, it must also prepare for the repercussions of a more pervasive environment. The panel discussion will focus on the initiatives and steps to be taken to shield your data centre from global warming and how to be prepared for a more demanding situation. Also, we try to answer the most impending question: How will the data center industry sustain growth rates that support exponential data usage in the face of a global climate emergency?

Responsible procurement - Involving priorities
Often it is noticed that we majorly choose ‘one stop shop’ solutions over diverse innovative technologies, risking the progression and use of ‘best of breed’ technology in the data centre industry. However, when it comes to improving data centre efficiency, having the opportunity to adopt new solutions will help organisations make strides towards energy efficiency. This panel discussion will revolve around how to go about with the purchase of ‘best of breed’ technologies, products, services with reduced environmental impacts.

Keeping Up With The Innovations Driven By Security
When cutting-edge technologies go from physical, on-premises to virtual in a ‘super-mario’ speed, security innovation gets lagged behind the evolving technology. In all its practicality, organisations take years to finally figure out the right way to secure a new technology/platform. By the time the appropriate security solution come on par with the technology, the world demands for a better version of it or an altogether a new tech innovation! This panel discussion will throw a definite light into how to build security into new technologies as they are developed, rather than adding it as an afterthought - to innovate with security rather than before security!
