Data Centers of the Future
Data centers must scale to meet the demand of digital lifestyles and more intelligent buildings and industry. This demand is driving a hybrid data center architecture of centralized, regional, and local edge. To survive and grow, you will need to leverage the power of connected infrastructure for a more sustainable, efficient, adaptive, and resilient data center.
We will cover:
What is wavelength multiplexing?
Own infrastructure vs leased services
Latest trends and technologies

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.
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
Reducing Data centers' climate footprint, while maximizing it's handprint
Vuorelma was part of the Finnish delegation that negotiated the climate treaty of Paris and worked for the Swedish Energy Agency for several years, before she joined Atea as Climate Manager in 2019. Atea is one of the leading Nordic and Baltic suppliers of IT infrastructure with approximately 7 200 employees in 89 cities in the Nordics & Baltics. Vuorelma: "Atea's data centers have ambitious targets of both reducing our own carbon footprint but even more importantly maximizing our carbon handprint; supporting our clients in reducing their emissions and creating value".
Microsoft’s vision on the future of international energy markets
Patrik Öhlund started as director energy markets EMEA for Microsoft in april 2021. He will share Microsoft’s vision on the future of energy markets. How will the ever growing demand for more data centers impact the demand for (green) energy and how might it impact Sweden
The Swedish Data center Industry Association (SDIA) presents:
How to become the world’s most sustainable data center nation
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. In Finland, multiple colocation data centers announced expansion of their facilities and Sweden has been an early frontrunner in attracting the attention of hyper scalers, such as Microsoft, Google and AWS.
The end-of-day-panel will be moderated by CBRE's Isabelle Kemlin and will explore the opportunities for green data center growth in Sweden. Should the Swedish government develop a long-term vision for green data center growth, just like Norway? Or should the Nordic countries team up?
On the panel:
Pär Åberg - Chairman of the Board - Swedish Datacenter Industry Association
Patrik Öhlund - Director Energy Markets EMEA - Microsoft
Maria Vuorelma - Climate Manager - Atea
Arba Kokalari - Member of the European Parliament - Moderaterna
