Power and cooling solutions for data centers are of critical importance to keep facilities and businesses online, especially as need the for data centers and greater data capacities continue to grow.
But running data centers are having worrying impacts on the environment by consuming approximately 1%-3% of the world’s electricity supply and pumping out 2% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
With social responsibilities to protect the environment and reduce energy costs rising, operators in Southeast Asia are exploring power and cooling solutions, including floating data centers, solar power and hybrid cooling.
For our next digital event in our Data Center Series, you are invited to explore the latest sustainable designs and innovative power and cooling solutions to solve the pressing energy supply and environmental concerns.
Are you listening to your data center?
Metering and monitoring data center innovations are crucial for making sure facilities are up and running effectively and efficiently.
During a pre-show interview, we will be joined by Clinton Marshall, the Deputy Director for Solutions and Channel Development from our Platinum Sponsors at Legrand Data Center Solutions in Asia Pacific.
Mr. Marshall has vast experience in designing, consulting and implementing industry best-practice approaches to data center capacity, energy and infrastructure management.
“[Join me] to learn how power monitoring and measurement can be effectively used to meet demands, while simultaneously delivering an IT environment that is able to achieve evolving business, usage, regulatory, and financial goals,” said Mr. Marshall.
Mr. Marshall will also present a thought leadership presentation during the digital event.
Explore best practices and strategy for sustainable data centers
Many Governments around the world are implementing carbon neutrality regulations and green data center standards to improve efficiency and sustainability.
In our first panel session, we will be joined by Tamás Balogh, the Director of H1 systems, our Silver Sponsor.
Mr. Balogh is a data center infrastructure expert and consultant who has worked on several dozens of data center facility projects from scratch.
“I look forward to sharing our insights on how data centers can become more sustainable without compromising their SLA or budget,” said Mr. Balogh.
Mr. Balogh will also share information about H1 System’s recent prototype data center project in Europe as well as how the results from the project can be applied to more tropical environments in Asia Pacific.
“The current global crisis of COVID-19 and climate change crisis impacts our life significantly, and more and more directly,” added Mr. Balogh.
He identified that the ICT sector is making rapid changes to adapt to the situations similar to Governments, which impact the data center industry.
“Being prepared for sustainable data centers won’t be just an option in the future which makes present times very interesting,” said Mr. Balogh.
Mr. Balogh will be joined by Joshua Au, the Head for Data Centre and Information Technology Shared Services at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).
As an expert and active member of the data center industry, Mr. Au will share how data centers can run with as little waste as possible, particularly considering that some facilities currently aste up to even 90% of the electricity they pull from the grid.
Discover power and cooling innovations keeping data centers alive
Data capacity demands are rising across the world, as more businesses are digitally transforming and Internet penetration is rising. This increases the need for higher power density and effective cooling in data centers.
With these rising demands, Southeast Asia’s cooling market is expected to grow to 926 million dollars by 2024 and the APAC power market is expected to grow by 8% annually.
To further explore the future trends and innovations in the data center power and cooling market, we will be joined by Mr. Marshall from Legrand Data Center Solutions and Wong Ka Vin, the Managing Director from DC1st, in our second panel session.
Mr. Marshall has gathered significant ‘real world’ customer insight and experience in developing best practice approaches to resolving challenges and reducing the complexity of day-to-day data center operations.
Mr. Wong brings with him over 30 years of executive management and leadership roles in the ICT industry and experience of designing and constructing data centers in Singapore and Indonesia.
Both panel sessions will be moderated by James Rix, the Associate Director of Arcadis UK, who is well versed in running data center projects across the whole data centre stack within 14 different countries around the world.
