Malaysia Cloud & Datacenter Convention 2021

Thurs, 9th Dec 2021, 9am – 3.30pm (GMT +8), Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur 

Malaysia is quickly maturing into a fully-fledged Cloud Computing hub. A total of MYR 21.6 bn was assigned to the National Fiberisation & Connectivity Plan (NFCP) in and 2020 and has seen developments throughout 2021.

As the roll-out of 5G connectivity throughout Malaysia accelerates towards a head, the resulting high-speed access from NFCP, allows for a total evolution of how businesses exist in the digital sphere.

At the very heart of the question of the rise in Cloud Technologies in Malaysia, is the market position that the country has its sights on.

With its expansive terrain, and proximity to relatively developed cloud computing hubs such as Singapore, Malaysia has begun to tease at challenging mature markets.

Recognising this yet to be maximised window of growth, global players like Alibaba have shrewdly moved to set-up operations in Malaysia, with other companies such as Microsoft recently following suit.

Join us at The Malaysia Cloud and Datacenter Convention 2021 (MYCDC2021) to be at the forefront of the discussion the massive game-changing developments in the industry, and the reverberations it carries for all major players in Malaysia’s Cloud Ecosystem.

14:05Keynote Presentation: The world of Multi-Hybrid Cloud – Why, how and the Why not ?

The continued adoption of multi-hybrid cloud by enterprises fosters innovation by aligning the workloads to the cloud services that can be consumed to best meet the ever-changing business demands.

The way enterprises are approaching multi-cloud environments is evolving. Many organizations already have different applications or workloads running on multiple different clouds, but their choice of clouds is on an ad hoc basis rather than as part of a strategic road map . Mixing multiple services, cloud providers, and cloud environments can quickly complicate architecture design, dependencies, and cost complexities amongst others.

A haphazard approach to digital transformation is a pathway to failure to reach their goals due to poor planning. In an urgent need to deliver business outcomes, organizations are ready to add services and embrace multi-cloud. Many organizations have moved quickly without the due diligence and strategic planning required to effectively create and optimize a long-term multi-cloud strategy.

Speakers:
Srinivas Rao, Chief Strategy Officer (CSO), AVM Cloud
14:20Closing Panel Discussion: Next Generation Green Data Centers : Performance Metrics and Sustainability

Green data centre (GDC) as an enterprise class computing facility is entirely built, managed and operated on green computing principles. Global technology companies are constantly challenged on how to make data centres more energy efficient in a growingly digital economy. The main challenge in Malaysia is the reluctance of businesses to try unconventional methods of air flow and power management, despite the return of significant savings. Thus, in this topic, we will look into different types of reliable metrics to create a green dc environment.
