DUBAI, UAE, 7 April 2020: Eurovent Middle East will host a two-part live webinar on Data Centre Cooling on April 14 and 16. Announcing this through a Press release, the industry association added that the virtual event will signal the resumption of its ‘HVACR Leadership Workshop’ series.
Explaining the virtual nature of the event, Eurovent said the COVID-19 situation has not only forced businesses and events to resort to online alternatives for meetings but also has led to an acceleration of digitalisation and an increased demand for data centres to cope with an unprecedented surge in communication and data processing infrastructure. The safe operation of such infrastructure, Eurovent said, depends heavily on reliable and energy-efficient cooling.
The webinar, Eurovent said, will provide an overview of systems and technologies available to achieve safe and sustainable operations.
Data Centres, Eurovent said, belong to strategic infrastructures with specific requirements to ensure protection of data and the continuous operation of a country’s critical systems, be it traffic guidance, energy distribution or telecommunications. As such, it is a necessity for data centre cooling systems to be exceptionally reliable whilst not interfering with data transmissions and to be energy efficient, in order to avoid an overload of national energy networks, Eurovent said.
According to Eurovent, the webinar will see leading industry personalities elaborate on key technologies and strategies related to data centre cooling. The topics include:
- Evolution of data centre cooling
- High efficiency technologies for data centre air conditioning
- Data centre cooling: Efficient and reliable with inverters
- Important evaporative cooling opportunities in data centre cooling
- Reducing costs in data centres with active front-end drives
- IT cooling: testing and performance standards
According to Eurovent, the webinar details are:
- April 14, 10.30am-Noon (GST): Data Centre Cooling Part 1
- April 16, 10.30am-Noon (GST): Data Centre Cooling Part 2
Registration is free-of-charge via www.eurovent.me, Eurovent said, adding that registered attendees will receive the links with which they can log into the virtual platform, 15 minutes prior to the scheduled starting time.
