JOHOR, MALAYSIA, Feb 12, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - Datacloud South East Asia Congress 2015 creates the major regional platform for datacenter and cloud IT infrastructure end users, software, solutions providers, experts, investors and all companies engaged in this expanding sector. The conference April 8-9 aims to explore the very latest in technologies and markets, to inspire through rich content and hosts 400+ senior executives to meet, connect, collaborate and do deals.
Supported by an international exhibition the event targets the leadership of organizations managing the IT estate and in house cloud computing resources, datacentre, cloud, managed and content service providers, Telcos, systems integrators, solutions firms, consultancies and expert advisors.
The event will address the challenge of data which is tripling in some cases every two years. Huge volumes of largely unstructured data are being generated through mobile, media, video, M2M and the Internet of Things. The design and construction of software defined next gen datacenters, automation, containers, modular, energy and cooling all feature as important themes in one of the most wide-ranging programmes ever.
The Cloud shift in IT models and impact on datacenters, and their challenges will be discussed by international experts with end users who will also provide the latest relevant insight through case studies and firesider interviews.
A special Finance and Investment for datacenter, hosting and cloud symposium will form part of the event and offers several critical advantages to all attendees including often difficult or rare opportunities for many companies to meet investors, exposure to key influencers as well as receiving a high level analysis of the market for datacentre and cloud assets, as well as unparalleled networking among the representatives attending.
"Datacloud South East Asia offers international businesses who are thinking of deploying IT estates in the region, or investing in new datacenters, the opportunity to discover what Iskandar Malaysia has to offer," said Iskandar Regional Development Authority Chief Executive Datuk Ismail Ibrahim. "We offer extensive greenfield sites, connectivity, power and good governance as well as compliance with international standards to enable any enterprise to securely manage their IT assets very cost effectively and within easy reach of other international cities."
"South East Asia holds tremendous opportunities for datacenter and cloud service providers in the coming years," commented Steve Wallage, managing director of BroadGroup Consulting and who will be speaking at the event. "With a current low ratio of outsourced datacenters across the region, we see migration gradually increasing and locations such as Johor will become increasingly sought after as expensive space in other city centres becomes less viable."
The event lead sponsors include the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) of Malaysia and the Iskandar Regional Development Authority.
