Importance of partnerships highlighted at Datacloud Europe


The Datacloud Europe event in Monaco (6th to 8th June) looks to attract investors, market leaders and their customers from the data centre and cloud sector. Data centre supplier Minkels – part of the publicly traded company Legrand – strongly contributes to the speaker programme. Together with Bulk and MainOne, Minkels will be discussing innovation, sustainability, hyperscale solutions and the importance of strategic partnerships.

Christiaan van Terheijden, CEO, Minkels, said: “Datacloud Europe is an important event for us. The setting is just perfect; the right people and themes covering today’s data centre and cloud challenges such as energy-efficiency, cost reduction and availability. We are honoured that we are able to play such a substantial role in the programme of this leading event together with our partners.”

On 7th June, Minkels and MainOne will present how their strategic partnership drives innovation in data centre infrastructure. MainOne is a connectivity and data centre solutions company in West Africa. They blazed a trail with the construction of West Africa’s largest Tier III+ data centre, MDXi. Egomaron Jegede (pictured), Technology Projects Manager, MainOne and Etienne Rochelle, International Account Manager, Minkels, explain in a case study in the ‘Africa Theatre’ how MainOne has grown to become West Africa’s number one and what role the partnership played in this.

On 8th June, van Terheijden and Peder Nӕrbø, President and Founder of Bulk Infrastructure, will speak about ‘Innovating sustainable hyperscale solutions’ in the ‘Innovation and Investment Theatre’. This presentation shows how the strategic partnership leads to a next-gen design in sustainable hyperscale data centres. Van Terheijden and Nӕrbø will draw a clear picture of the main drivers in the data centre market such as sustainability, energy-efficiency and scalability and show how they are translated into the Bulk NO1 Campus project.

Datacloud Europe will take place between 6th and 8th June 2017 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
