Panel discussion - How to Avoid Data Centre Failure - Challenges?

Data Centre World Keynote Theatre
Many things can cause data center failure - some are common causes that almost everyone faces (such as human error) while other causes are very rare. But no matter what causes it, the outcome is the same: lost revenue, lost productivity and lost customers. Last year, an hour of downtime on average costs data center operators $260,000, while a five-minute outage costs just $2,600. So, if failures are inevitable, can we at least minimise them? This panel discussion shall explore the challenges faced by data centres to minimise failures and how to overcome them.
