It’s that time of the year again when we officially put out a ‘call for papers’ for the fourth annual Australian Cloud and Data Centre Strategy Summit, to be held March 1-3, 2016 at Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.
You may notice the slight renaming of the event this year to include cloud computing.
Over the past couple of years we’ve seen the infrastructure discussion move from data centre builds, refreshes and migrations, to the types of systems that can be run out of these facilities.
So the overarching theme for the 2016 summit is 'performing in the new frontier: will your infrastructure ecosystem cope’ with these new types of workloads?
In calling for papers, we are particularly interested in:
- Data centre and/or cloud projects
- Containers and container management (e.g. Docker)
- Efforts to reduce power consumption within your facilities
- Hybrid cloud environments
- ‘Lego block’ architectures for streamlining cloud migration
We have already reached out to data centre and cloud industry heavyweights internationally, and can confirm our first international speaker is Craig McLuckie, the founder of Google’s Linux container management system Kubernetes.
We will announce more of our speaker line-up shortly, but for now we would like to hear from you on papers or case studies you – our readers – would like to present.
