Being Relevant in the Digital Ecosystem
In the digital ecosystem of data and applications everybody must know their special role. We must all learn how to be relevant and how to communicate to other members of the digital ecosystem special value, for example HPE’s role in IoT is to provide “IT for IoT”. This session will look at the digital ecosystem around hosting of workloads and the role of in house and external service providers. It will show how the members of the ecosystem will enable the present and future business of a service provider with illustrations from HPE’s beliefs and strategy; the new action is at the edge, agility from infrastructure as code, security by design and the emergence of a new era of computing.

The cloud and its whereabouts – Location is key
As more workloads are moved off-premise, the question on what cloud to choose and what provider to work with, is high on the agenda of many a European CIO. Cloud computing has gained such trust among decision makers, that 60% of IT will be off-premise by next year. ‘The cloud‘ is not a place, but a consumption model, yet location of data plays an increasing role in the decision process. Issues on security and data sovereignty form a tremendous opportunities for European Service Providers. European regulations like NIS and GDPR are making the case for local Service Providers even stronger. Proximity to the customer, solid in-country data centers, tailor made SLAs and specialized data services are key to SP’s success. The cloud and its whereabouts – or location – is a prime asset in cloud computing.

Let’s make website security great... again!
What do you have in mind when you think about website security? Server infrastructure, HTTPS encryption or reliable DNS servers? The time has come to combine all these elements and to make the implementation quick and user-friendly through one interface!

Transatlantic Business at Stake – Will Europe Draw its Trumps?
Since October 2015, the EU-US Safe Harbour protections are gone. This has changed the transatlantic transfer of personal identifiable information. In July 2016 the EU Commission adopted “Privacy Shield” as a valid possibility for legal data transfer. But “Privacy Shield” is under attack – unfettered access of law enforcement and intelligence to personal data of European Citizens are still a daily occurrence.
As if that weren’t enough, with protectionism being on the rise, transatlantic business is facing a lot of risks. How will the political sector respond to the challenges of the new U.S. administration?

Continuous Growth and Sustainability
As the amount of data produced daily increases at an exponential and ever faster rate, so does the need to build new DCs and to find suitable COLO locations to meet the industries’ needs. The DC industry is using already few per cent of the global electricity that mounts to several hundred Terawatts. It’s not just electricity what data centres consume. During construction an abundance of steel and other materials are needed to build and equip them for operation. At the same time sustainability and the Green DC concept have become key words that are used to market data centres as environmentally friendly. This presentation explores how can we have such a growth in the business and call it sustainable at the same time?

DCIM as the remedy for growing pains of infrastructure owners and providers.
Although migration to the cloud by organizations is continuing its growing trend, more and more larger companies demonstrate requirements for constructing their own Data Centers, with smaller organizations investing either in modular DCs, or colocation services in larger DCs. In any of those cases, there are vast requirements for managing, monitoring, and servicing such infrastructure, which is used for organization’s personal needs or for provisioning to others. Within this session we will be exploring further what needs drive such organizations to invest into infrastructure, what issues and difficulties they are faced with, what requirements are imposed, and how it can all be streamlined, optimized, and solved with an integrated DCIM solution.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation - expensive changes
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR), binding on Europe as of 25.05.2018, obliges companies to introduce data protection management. The aim is to ensure the security of personal data in European companies. The new requirements for data processors include the preparation of a list of procedures for the activities they accomplish on behalf of the contract. An additional, existential risk is created by joint and several liability. This is intended to ensure and to provide evidence that the processing of personal data follows the guidelines of the EU-GDPR. But how do you integrate this theory into your business practice? At all: how should a good data protection management according to EU-GDPR look like? - In his short speech, Christian Heutger provides to you the approaches of the implementation of a data protection management.

How to win the industry endgame. Survival of the fittest - building a sustainable brand

The Future of the Cloud Industry
Today, businesses are using the cloud more and more. Some have migrated all or most their applications, data, and even their desktops to cloud providers such as OVH. Others that have ONLY ever known the cloud (like start-ups), rely on the OVH Cloud to reduce time to market and scale their infrastructure along with the success of their innovations. As a European Cloud leader, OVH is experiencing an acceleration in demand as well as an increasing global need. In return, this requires the number of datacenters being set up across the world to be multiplied. But the future of the cloud is not just about infrastructure, servers and bandwidth. It is also the opportunity to choose the type of cloud that best meets your needs. Public, Private, Hybrid—different clouds must be combined to form the infrastructures of tomorrow. This will be the topic of the presentation by Laurent Allard, CEO of OVH.

Software-Defined Storage from a User’s Perspective
Buzzword or not: Software-defined storage is a hot topic. Running a storage infrastructure based on software vastly simplifies enterprise and service provider infrastructures. It consolidates silos into a single system that runs on heterogeneous standard server hardware. Features like scalability, elasticity and full fault-tolerance ease operations and storage provisioning. But what does all that actually mean for the user? We’ll shed light on the storage self-service shop made possible by software. How can I get SSD-based scratch storage and store the results in an erasure coded archive? Who else is using the infrastructure and how secure is my data? What happens with my data once I’m done? What if I need to reconfigure the system on the fly? Software-defined storage has the answers to those questions.

Swedish by design: True scale-out software defined storage, Compuverde
In Sweden, design and development of new technology are being developed in a radically different way than they are in other places. That is why Compuverde is ten steps in front of the competition in the area of Software Defined Scale-Out Multi-Protocol Storage systems. Carl-Henric will go in to the details of the Compuverde platform and explain why a good design and solid design choices are the only way to create a rock solid software defined storage solution. This can of course only be done by explaining the design itself and some of the choices that follow from good and long thinking about that design. Doing storage in a new and better way, while taking in to account the enormous growth rates of storage capacity today, demands a totally new way of thinking about storing and accessing data. Compuverde and its Swedish Design are what make storage work again.
