·         Demand capacity forecasting on a facility level

·         Outdated data centres: extending life vs. selling/scraping it

·         Switching data centre providers

·         Maximising data centre current use

·         When you need state-of-the art can it pay to retrofit?

·         Refreshing hardware vs. moving to the cloud

·         Comparing lead times

·         When don’t containers make sense?

·         PUE considerations

·         Multi-tiered facilities: Can they lessen the need for expansion?


Michael Adams, Director of Critical Facilities Services, HP Technical Consulting will chair the session with Tony Lucas of Flexiant joining Akber Jaffer of Colt Technology Services and Hector R Diaz, Director, Data Center Portfolio Management at Oracle as panellist.
