Over 2500 IT- and telecom professionals will gather in the RAI in Utrecht this week.
Its all about synergy in energy
All hosting, cloud, telecom and datacenter topics are combined during this two day event on Wednesday December 7 and Thursday December 8 in exhibition center the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht.
The Cloud- and Telecom- expo is a conference for people who are responsible for centralized IT infrastructure and the subsequent IT costs management, IT investments and the quality of IT services. The summit welcomes IT coordinators, Directors of Operations, IT architects, controllers, managers, directors and owners, and server, storage and network controllers.
Since all current developments in the datacenter industry will be one of the top subjects during the Cloud- and Telecom- expo, EvoSwitch – being one of the leading Dutch datacenters – will of course be present. We will gladly share our expertise and exchange knowledge with visitors and participants on matters like physical security, cooling, green energy and equipment, servers, virtualization and cabling. In all these topics sustainability is the connecting thread, a key theme for EvoSwitch.
It goes without saying that sustainable business in datacenters is beneficial for both the datacenter and its clients. As we see it, energy efficiency equals cost-reduction. When datacenters can reduce their energy bill, this being their main expenditure, they can reduce their commercial fees as well, thus creating a very powerful USP. We have experienced that finding synergy in sustainability measures is very important to obtain this optimal situation.
One of the technologies that accounts for the energy efficiency gains at EvoSwitch is the cooling technology called adiabatic cooling, that we use at our newly built hall. For this cooling method outdoor air is used. The Dutch climate is perfect for this due to its relative humidity and moderate temperature. Since evaporation goes hand in hand with heat absorption from the air, cooling takes place. A simple fan is sufficient to spread the cool air and thus maximize the profit, keeping the power consumption much lower than in traditional datacenters, which use compressors and motors.
To obtain maximum efficiency, though, it is important to look at all the factors that can maximize energy efficiency. For instance: the cabling should be properly laid out, in order for the air to pass through unhindered, and the server racks must be completely filled in order to minimize air leakage . Combining these separate measures creates the best possible energy efficiency, keeping in mind that one plus one equals three. Intrigued? Join us at the Cloud- and Telecom Expo, where we will elaborate on this win-win situation for our partners and clients.
We would be happy to welcome you at the conference or see you join the conversation with us on Twitter at @EvoSwitch, (remember to include the #CloudExpoNL hashtag). More information about the Summit can be found at www.cloudexpo.nl .
