The green data center and sustainable solutions market is rapidly growing, as governments crack down on the growing energy consumption and carbon emissions caused by data centers.
In South Korea, data center operators like IBM, EhostIDC, LG CNS and Naver have all invested in green data center solutions, including raised flooring, solar power and outside air cooling and liquid cooling.
The Korea Information Technology Service Industry Association also launched the Green Data Center Certificate in the country, with the goal of reducing energy consumption and having more than 15% of local data centers obtain the certificate.
But South Korea is still the seventh largest emitter of carbon dioxide in the world, and the twelfth largest emitter of total greenhouse gas emissions.
So, how does South Korea compare to the rest of Asia in implementing green data center technologies? Join industry experts on Thursday 13 August to discover the latest green data center solutions and how you can get involved in saving the environment!
Empowering efficient data centers in Korea
First up on our Green Data Center event, we will be joined by Chang Cho, a member of the Korea Data Center Council (KDCC) and Founder of Onion Technology, a leading DCIM solution provider in Korea.
As technical board member of Green Data Center Certificate, Mr. Cho will enlighten us on one of KDCC’s key activities to develop and operate Green Data Center Certification Programs to help improve data center energy efficiency and reduce national energy consumption.
Discover the global green data center trends
We will then be joined by Professor Wen Yonggang from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Professor Wen’s research interests include cloud computing, green data centers and machine learning.
Professor Wen will share a deep dive on the global green data center market and the artificial intelligence-based solutions that could solve the growing energy efficiency concerns.
Explore the state of green data centers in Asia Pacific
How does South Korea compare to other countries in Asia Pacific for implementing green data centers and the appetite for sustainable solutions in the region? And what is the future for the industry?
We will be joined by Jay Weon Khym, the Country Manager for Korea at Digital Realty who recently broke ground on their first data center in Korea. Digital Realty also recently partnered with the Science-Based Targets Initiative to bring emissions in-line with a “significantly below two-degree” climate change scenario by 2030.
Joining Mr. Khym will be Charles Lee, the Founder and Managing Director of OneAsia and Newtech Technology, providing all-rounded data center and facility management services.
Newtech is committed to designing and constructing a new generation of data centers that minimise power consumption and carbon emissions, making Charles a perfect panellist to shed light on the state of green data centers in Asia.
