About This Conference


CeBIT in collaboration with DatacenterDynamics is back for the 2nd annual DCD at CeBIT –delivering the world’s largest full-stack data center event onto CeBIT’s international stage in 2016. The whole data center eco-system – everything, North and South of the rack – will be represented in Hall 12, helping IT professionals make the right infrastructure decisions.

Data centers are the mission critical infrastructure that underpins the digital economy in the era of connected living, and whilst these platforms are getting easier to provision and manage, the infrastructure layer is getting more complex. Driving performance and efficiency with mission-critical ICT infrastructure is a major challenge. It requires multi-skilled professionals, who need to understand ‘the data center’ from an organisation’s many viewpoints and who are adept at cross-discipline collaboration in order to drive effective results.

DCD at CeBIT brings together the entire IT stack, tackling issues faced by professionals with blended or hybrid infrastructures and the technical challenges of tomorrow’s hyperconverged world.
