With recent reports indicating an increased threat of extreme weather related events and rising sea levels due to climate change, critical infrastructure is expected to become more threatened by water infiltration and flooding. For communication infrastructure, including data centers, it is critical to reduce the risk of downtime to maintain operational reliability. While site selection might offer the best protection, for some locations, data center hardening might be the only option. Adopting effective sealing designs of openings in data centers as a best practice could effectively mitigate risk and should be considered in data center hardening strategies.
The show has been absolutely amazing. The footfall we had on our stand was great – we were busy, rushed off our feet all day! We’ve got ten staff on stand and no-one stood still all day. It’s been a mixture of customers we know, new customers coming in from the data centre industry and the other industries that are here as well. So, it’s been a smashing event!
Marketing Manager, NTT
We’ve seen lots of people, the right people. There’s been great footfall of industry relevant visitors - as expected, and we had lots of interest at our stand. I’ve had positive feedback from our sales team, they’ve had really good conversations, which is fantastic! We’re happy to be part of DCW and we’ve already signed up for next year.
Sales and Marketing Manager, Stulz
At Data Centre World you will find all the important DC players and more importantly, all the delegates have the right job titles. It is a great place to network, so far we have had great conversations with existing and new customers. We’ve had great feedback from our sales team!
Marketing Manager, Vertiv
The event was excellent and always busy, we did not have any quiet moments over the two days and took away some excellent leads and opportunities. The Data Centre World event in Singapore is definitely the most important event for us in APAC. We have already booked to come back in 2019!
Head of Sales APAC, Stulz
This has been a good event as there was brand awareness generated. It's a good platform for showcasing data centre solutions and so far we've achieve some of our goals. We've also met some of the leads we've been looking for such as design engineers, staff from the Purchasing Departments, CEOs etc. We will definitely be back next year!
Manager - Strategic Sales, Elcom
We supply equipment for data centre projects, and are here to get more connections and leads. We've received good support from the organisers of Data Centre World, and will come back next year as well.
