|Tue, 12 Nov||Welcome Speech |
Welcome to Digital Infra Montreal
|Tue, 12 Nov||Panel: What’s driving the capacity demands of the digital infrastructure industry? |
Where is the demand coming from? From international cloud platform providers and hyperscalers through to the artificial intelligence and gaming industries, who will be providing capacity and to what design? What should we expect from annual traffic projections growth of the industry in Montreal and beyond?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Green Peace Keynote |
Enabling the growth of digital infrastructure while improving its efficiency and minimising its impact on climate change
|Tue, 12 Nov||Panel: How will the data center industry embrace renewable energy to meet the ever-growing demand for power? What further energy efficiency measures are possible? |
|Tue, 12 Nov||Coffee Break Break|
Coffee Break, Networking and Expo
|Tue, 12 Nov||Commoditisation and data center design for the digital infrastructure economy |
With the ever-growing pressure ongetting new capacity online quickly how can modular design and pre-fabricationoff site and containers reduce costs and improve time to market? Whichinfrastructure elements have the greatest potential for improvement in thisregard? Which business applications have the greatest need for this approach?
|Tue, 12 Nov||ENCQOR case study: 5G and digital infrastructure deployments at the edge of the network |
What are the options? How is network capacity being linked to people and devices at theedge? How much can be achieved by siting edge computing capabilities at telecominfrastructure assets, especially with the demands of 5G roll-outs?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Data centers and the circular economy |
|Tue, 12 Nov||Edge power: Meeting energy demands of digital infrastructure with micro generation/distributed energy resources |
The energy infrastructure needed to deliverglobal data movement and storage comes with an opportunity to get creativeabout generation. Distributed energy resources (DERs), like wind and solarpower, offer part of the solution for things like edge computing/data centersbut how are these incorporated into planning for energy across the entiredigital infrastructure estate?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Panel: Government initiatives and market drivers for the digital infrastructure industry in Montreal |
This session willexplore the set of incentives being offered to investors in digital infrastructurefor both domestic and international operators. What other market drivers are attracting investment in Montreal aslocation?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Upgrades and retrofits – How will roadmaps for improvements take climate change challenges into account? |
New builds are essential in meetingcapacity demands but squeezing more out of existing infrastructure assets mustalso form part of the solution. From smarter cooling through to more efficientand sustainable servers, where does the upgrade begin?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Cooling panel to include liquid cooling/Smart cooling control: Localised cooling for variable loads in the data center or l.T. Infrastructure |
Cooling an entire facility to a constant temperature is inefficient inan environment where different servers throughout the facility are working oridling at the same time. But how cost-effective can localised cooling be, giventhe likely need to retrofit sensors in legacy facilities or incorporate smartcooling in new builds?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Panel: The re-networking of digital infrastructure for next-gen services |
Securing extra network/interconnect bandwidth will be needed to deliver5G, IoT, and the consequent decentralisation of much new data processing,analysis, and dissemination to the edge. What should enterprises and colo &cloud players consider when planning for the huge expected increase in networktraffic? How do we model for the complexities of future traffic payloads?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Panel: Managing KPIs to reduce the carbon emissions of IT infrastructure, including third-party data center colocation/cloud services |
Is the responsibility for IT operations’energy/carbon management sufficiently represented at senior management levelsin enterprises? How well are third-party data center colocation/cloud servicessuppliers’ KPIs and goals managed by their customers for energyefficiency/carbon emissions? Is PUE a sufficiently useful tool in measuringenergy efficiency across all digital infrastructure? Is a new regime andverification process for carbon and energy efficiency reporting required tolimit the impact of data centers/digital on climate change?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Lunch Break |
Lunch, Networking & Expo
|Tue, 12 Nov||Panel: How will cloud gaming be accommodated in digital infrastructure planning? |
This session will examine the impact ofcloud gaming on data center and network infrastructure design and capacity.What technical challenges arise in the delivery of the gaming experienceonline? Can that experience match that of the console? How isthe cloud transforming game production? What actions need to be taken inpursuit of "gaming clean"?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Polymorphic data center design for new builds and upgrades or Progress report on Open 19 Computing Solution/Liquid Cooling |
How can data centers be converted or built new to accommodate acombination of core tasks such as bitcoin mining or more high-performance taskssuch as big data number crunching for consumer or scientific researchpurposes? What potential problems arethere with adopting polymorphic design and how can they be overcome?
Progress report on Open 19 Edge Computing Solution and/or LiquidCooling

|Tue, 12 Nov||Panel: Using blockchain improve digital infrastructure energy efficiency |
Blockchain enables the real-time coordination of data on supplyand demand of electricity in the grid, helping to match a consumer who wants tosell excess energy with another consumer in the same grid who needs additionalenergy. What is the digital infra industry doing to deploy blockchain inefforts to reduce energy bills and carbon emissions? What can we learn fromblockchain adoption in other sectors?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Smart engineering: The Open Compute Project |
How is commoditisationat a hardware component level inside the data center influencing overalldesign? What construction cost benefits potentially arise from standardisingwhat goes in the facility?
|Tue, 12 Nov||Panel: 12 years to save the planet. How does the way we build and operate digital infrastructure need to change to drastically reduce the industry’s carbon footprint? |
Last year the authors ofthe UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned there is only adozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond whicheven half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods. Fromsustainable construction techniques through to sustainable servers and blockchainapplications, where are the quick wins and is everything being done tore-imagine digital infrastructure blueprints with climate change top, middle,and bottom of mind? The move torenewable energy sources is a glaring obvious but how to make the shift atscale?
