Future Data Centre

How data centres will evolve in 3-5 years and beyond?

Budapest, February 7, 2019


No modern company exists without a data centre hosting most if not all IT components facilitating its business. A data centre can range from a small air conditioned room to multiple heavily guarded purpose - built facilities scattered around country or even continent. Last 10 years saw a mind - boggling advance in technology housed inside data centre. Servers became smaller, faster and smarter. Storage offers now practically unlimited capacity and intelligence for data it keeps. Networks convey unbelievable amounts of information across with unprecedented reliability and performance.

  • What are the breakthrough changes due in 3 years? In 5 years or beyond?
  • How will they affect data centres?
  • What impact will they bring to your business?

Please join Broadcom and IDC business breakfast for insights and discussion on this critical aspect of enterprise IT.

Thanks to that we are able to see what's coming and in many cases we are actually driving this change. We would like to discuss technologies which are just around the corner and explain what their advent will mean to your data centre and in consequence - business. Thus help you prepare better for the future.

Data centre cost optimisation in a national telco provider - a SAN case study

Marcin Kaczmarski
Territory Sales Manager CEE, Brocade, Broadcom

Storage area networks due to their technical sophistication and dedicated nature can generate high costs, both in the capital as well as operational space. However these costs are susceptible to optimisation, probably most of all data centre components. The case study explains what challenges we faced, how we came to solution and how we implemented it. It also clarifies in raw numbers why we really cost - optimised the SAN.
