Infracom 2018: South Africa's must-visit data centre networking event of the year will take place on Thursday 14 June 2018 at Kyalami's "Theatre on the Track". Infracom is a niche one-day exhibition and conference focusing on delivering real South African content for technology leaders in search for solid cost-effective solutions in the data centre space.

Infracom founder and director, Jacqueline Gradwell, says: "Enterprise transformation is the new imperative for the data centre world; the impetus for business-driven strategies and investments.

"Technology leaders have to deliver on the transformation promise, embracing agile deployment models that include cloud, containers and micro services, managing an explosion of data, and achieving ever-rising service levels. They are required to work in a collaborative culture built on new business relationships and financial acumen, and most importantly, they need to lay the foundation for the vast digital ecosystem and data centre of the future. Infracom brings together those serious decision-makers who wish to look at the foundation of their infrastructure to best support this transformation process."

Infracom 2018 examines the shifting needs of the data centre, as well as providing you with insight to make better decisions regarding your infrastructure. Main topics include:

* South African economy and the impact of our utility restraints;
* Evolving micro and mini data centre infrastructures for edge and distributed computing;
* Modular data centre vs traditional data centre;
* The fallacy of a resilient data centre;
* Power quality in a critical backup application;
* Doing business in Africa;
* Blockchain technology; and
* The impact and future of connectivity in Africa.
