Following on last year’s acclaimed ‘first annual’ Great Canadian Data Centre Symposium, GCDCS19 is designed to connect the Canadian (and North American, and global) data centre community around the development of best practices that are critical to IT service delivery.
The Symposium leads off with an ‘all star’ plenary panel, including senior executives from technical and business management, academica and the public sector, Canadian and US/international thought leaders. The main part of the day consists of five ‘main stage’ panel discussions – each kicked off by a 5-10 minute research-based presentation delivered by industry representatives – that address critical data centre issues. At the same time, breakout sesions (limited to 20 attendees) provide ‘deep dive’ insights into specific topics. Throughout the day, networking breaks will allow extensive opportunities tor peer-to-peer discussions.
