This past month Envirotech attended yet another data center convention. However, this was none other than Data Cloud Europe, hosted in Monaco. The world renowned convention attracts the largest industry players from all over the world, including Norway, where Oslo Data Center Location and Invest in Norway collaborated on making Pod 41 an attraction this year!
Attendance and Networking
Brought together to this exhibition are the largest innovators, solution providers, data center service firms, cooling specialists and many more, ranging from global organizations to smaller scale businesses with single-country operations.
For any business, whether well developed or in the embryonic stages of their development, this event is certainly one in the top ranks throughout the year. DCE is an endless well of knowledge and information within one of the fastest growing industries in the 21st century. Entrepreneurs, industry leaders and everyone in between can gather weeks, or even months’ worth of information and intel from a couple of days packed tight with speakers, keynotes, forums, panels and boards. For an up and coming company from Norway making its presence, Envirotech has had an invaluable experience. During the event we have spoken to some of the brightest minds in the industry and on the planet, top-level management in global organizations and innovators such as ourselves. DCE has been an important networking opportunity for future partnerships and expansion as Envirotech is on the brink of completing initial testing of the first finished product.
Invest in Norway at Pod 41
As mentioned, Invest in Norway were there with a collaborative stand from Norway, where they had a slightly unusual, yet positive marketing aspect on their agenda. Moving forward, Ringerike municipality in Norway may become one of the locations for a DCE central. During Invest in Norway’s attendance to DCE they intend to promote Hønefoss and Kihlemoen as potential data center locations. Their efforts may very well pay off after the Norwegian government decided to reduce power costs for data centers in their budget for 2016, for larger data centers.
Data Cloud Europe 2016 certainly proved most successful for Envirotech and its progress moving forward, but also for Norway and all the hard work being done every day to make sure the world sees us as a serious contender for data center sites moving further into the 21st century, and a country looking to take part in the industry`s tremendous growth.
Data Cloud Europe 2017
Envirotech will no doubt attend DCE 2017 and we hope to see you there. We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the exhibition, or the industry in general. Simply drop us a note or give us a call.
