Event Review: Data Centre LIVE Virtual
• Kayleigh Shooter • May 19, 2023

Wednesday marked our third fully virtual event, Data Centre LIVE Virtual. The virtual event dove into all things data centres, cloud, digital transformation, and so much more.

Through our long-standing partnership with the event streaming application, Brella, we were able to provide the virtual audience with an immersive and collaborative event experience. Attendees were able to match make and network with other attendees beforehand, send live questions to speakers, join “breakout” coffee meetings during the event, and much more.

We were joined by many high-class speakers who shared some exclusive insights into data, cloud and 5G.
We were joined by VMware’s Vittorio Viarengo, NTT’s Marientina Laina, Schneider Electric’s Steven Brown and many more insightful keynote speakers. 

All of the virtual sessions were highly insightful to both us and the audience, we outline just some of our favourite sessions below - from The Sustainable Data Centre Forum to Michael Ortiz’s session on “The Impact of Generative AI on the Data Centre Industry”
