How Tribes, Farms and Digital Rebels are Reshaping the Future
"Pandemics might cause a severe bump in the course of history, but they don't change it. Pandemics can, however, accelerate trends that were already happening and that's what we are seeing right now. I'll be talking about how information technology is creating new industries, transforms societies and changes human behavior, using insights from history, anthropology and technology".
Data Embassy as a Service: Trusted Connectivity on a strategic level
In 2017, Estonia and Luxembourg signed an agreement establishing the world’s first Data Embassy in Luxembourg.
In November 2021 Greenergy - a new large-scale purpose-built data center - will be opened in Estonia creating unique possibilities to offer Data Embassy as a service to nation states, ensuring their countries' digital continuity with particular respect to critical databases.
The presentation will focus on the reasons behind setting up the first Data Embassy, on the required technical prerequisites and on the legal framework. How can private companies utilize this concept? How will the largest and securest data center in the Baltic region change the state of play in hosting critical databases?

Edge. What is the big deal?
5G is currently rolled out all over the globe with new features for IoT, security and network slicing that will enable new and improved use cases. The greatest change though is the decrease in latency that is exponential in impact. Then the vision for 6G is a 10-fold improvement in performance. The new use cases and device types will create more data traffic and need for compute infrastructure close to the end use. This network edge infrastructure will enable completely new applications and further impact the large-scale central IT infrastructure. The network edge nodes will be of different sizes, designs and they need to be autonomous

Uptime Institute Global Data Center Survey 2021
Uptime Institute’s 2021 annual survey, now in its 11th year, reveals a vibrant sector that is growing and adapting to rapid change on multiple levels. Owners and operators are taking many different approaches to a range of different challenges, such as improving resiliency, being more sustainable, maintaining staff levels, using the cloud, or building out edge data center capacity.
Data Centre Sustainability – The road to Net Zero
The Next Step: towards a carbon negative data center
Most players in the data center industry have set climate neutrality targets. There are a lot of climate neutral initiatives, events and workshops. The path towards it may require significant effort, but it is still a limited, clear problem where you analyze, prioritize and implement tasks to reduce emissions and then likely compensate for the last part. Once the target is reached and you are certified climate neutral, what then? How do you take the first steps on the path to carbon negative, climate positive?

Forecasting the future of data exchange; measuring & managing the environmental impact and other future developments that will impact the next generation of data centers
In his presentation, Ville Sirviö, CEO at the Nordic Institute for Interoperability Solutions (NIIS), will guide you through past, present and future of data exchange in Europe. Besides highlighting particular ongoing initiatives, he’ll talk about measuring and managing the environmental impact of data exchange and he'll touch on other future developments that will affect the future of data exchange and what this could mean for the future of data centers
Is Finland ready for Green Data Center Growth?
The Nordics are a great location for green data center growth. And the world is starting to notice. In Norway we saw three major data center acquisitions this year, just weeks ago both Facebook & Google announced they bought land in Denmark and, in Finland, multiple colocation data centers announced expansion of their facilities.
The end-of-day-panel will discuss the opportunities that are unique for Finland, but also the different challenges they face compared to the Nordic neighbours. Can Finland keep up with the rising demand for green energy? Especially now that energy prices are rising everywhere. Or are they? Should the Finnish government develop a long-term vision for green data center growth, just like Norway is doing? What should be done to facilitate green data center growth in Finland?
