CAPRE’s Fourth Annual Canadian Data Centre & Cloud Infrastructure Summit

Organizer's Welcome Letter

Welcome, From The Organizers

December 22, 2018

Dear Colleague,

Happy holidays from CAPRE’s International Data Center Series. In 2018, our series expanded to new markets, including: Calgary, Vancouver and Los Angeles. We now produce more than 20 data center events annually in the U.S., Canada and Europe building on the success of the series over the last eight years. We continuously updated and improved our agendas to include trending topics, such as: the role of women in mission critical, growth of edge compute, and the impact of hyperscale on design and engineering. 

In 2019, CAPRE will continue the data center conversation in Toronto.  We are pleased to announce our CAPRE’s Fourth Annual Canadian Data Centre & Cloud Infrastructure Summit for May 23 at Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre.

Over the last three years, CAPRE has brought together more than 900 senior-level data center real estate and technology infrastructure executives in Canada area for important industry discussion, debate and networking. Our 2019 series will bring important trends and patterns into focus, including: growth of hyperscale, edge, colocation, 5G rollout, cloud innovations and growth of the Canadian market in relation to competitive North America markets.  How will enterprise end-users make decisions about data center services in 2019?

We work in an exciting and rapidly-evolving industry, and pleased to announce our Toronto  event for next year.
