|By Maikel Bouricius, project manager at Green IT Amsterdam|
Green IT Amsterdam represented GEYSER during the Datacloud Europe event on June 8th in Monaco.
Datacloud Europe, one of the leading datacenter and cloud industry events in Europe is organized annually and is covering both datacenter and cloud topics for a wide and high level industry audience.
Maikel Bouricius, Manager Marketing communications & collaboration at Green IT Amsterdam, participated in a panel session around renewable energy, specifically industry and stakeholders efforts to make the renewable energy transition possible.
The discussion, chaired by TechUK’s Emma Fryer covered the efforts the datacenter industry already made regarding sustainability and the need for stakeholder collaboration to make the renewable energy transition possible. Also the topic of flexibility of energy supply and demand was discussed and seen as important by the panelists.
In general, this year’s theme of Datacloud Europe was the development around edge datacenters judging from the various talks and discussions. This development, building datacenters closer to the end user, resulting in possible networks of datacenter operators is interesting from a flexibility and dynamic perspective. Together with the development of datacenter automation, we are moving from monitoring to automated decision making, the opportunity for GEYSER tools are increasing.
