Engineers Ireland Breakfast Seminar

The growth of Data Centres is set to continue, and indeed accelerate, as a global phenomenon. As Ireland continues to build on its reputation as a location of choice for hosting of “Data” and the construction of the consequent “Centres”, this seminar will explore:

  • The reasons why so many of the world’s largest “Hyperscales” (Google, Amazon, Microsoft), “Co Locators” (Equinix, Digital Realty, Interxion) and others continue to invest
  • The key challenges and threats in this fast moving sector, and the key factors required to continue and strengthen Ireland’s competitive position in this arena
  • The key role of the different branches of the Engineering profession (ICT, power supply, building services design, O&M and energy management) in delivering on the opportunity.

Free – all welcome, booking is essential.

A light breakfast will be provided.
