2016 Host in Ireland, a strategic global initiative created to increase awareness of the benefits of hosting digital assets in Ireland, today announces its participation at Datacloud Europe 2016, taking place June 8-9 at The Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. Host in Ireland will be a Gold Sponsor of this year’s conference and alongside partner companies Future-Tech, Cork Internet Exchange, IDA Ireland, Primary Integration, and CBRE will be a featured organization in the “Irish Pavilion,” an exhibit focused on the advantages of the Irish hosting ecosphere.  In its 12th year, Datacloud Europe 2016 is the Continent’s premier global IT infrastructure and cloud event.

President and Founder of Host in Ireland, Garry Connolly, will participate on the panel “Data Center Location, Renewable Energy, Costs and Outlook,” taking place on Wednesday, June 8 at the Datacloud Theatre at 2:20 p.m.  During this session, Mr. Connolly will join representatives from BroadGroup, Invest in Denmark, Lefdal Mine Datacenter AS, Rittal, The Node Pole, NxtVn and LuxConnect S.A. to discuss the benefits of hosting digital assets in Ireland.  As global corporations seek security, renewable energy, connectivity and cost control in their data center hosting environments, Europe, and specifically, Ireland, is well-equipped to meet these requirements.  Mr. Connolly will share with attendees the benefits of Ireland as an optimal location for hosting digital assets, represented by the “5 Ps” – Policies, Pedigree, People, Power and Pipes.

In addition, Host in Ireland has been named a nominee for the Data Center and Cloud 2016 EMEA ‘Location of the Year’ award.  This inaugural award for data center locations denotes industry distinction on an international level. Winners will be announced during the 9th annual pre-conference award dinner on the evening of June 7 at Le Méridien in Monaco. Host in Ireland is the only non-governmental nominee for the prestigious award.

“We’ve worked hard to provide timely and accurate information regarding Ireland’s unique capabilities for hosting digital assets and I’m very excited that Host in Ireland has been recognized as a leading player within this community with its nomination for the Data Center and Cloud EMEA award for ‘Location of the Year,’” remarks Mr. Connolly.  “Moreover, I am delighted that we are joined by our partners CommScope, Digital Realty and Schneider Electric who are also exhibiting at Datacloud Europe. I’m looking forward to collectively sharing our unique perspective on the digital assets hosting industry and the ways in which Ireland is facilitating growth throughout the data center and cloud sectors,” Connolly adds.

About Host in Ireland

Host in Ireland is an industry-led marketing initiative that provides timely and accurate information on Ireland’s digital asset hosting ecosystem at all times, including demonstrating why Ireland is more cost-effective, efficient, reliable, secure and accessible than most other regions across the EU. There’s a reason companies like Microsoft, Zendesk, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Adobe and beyond have sought to host their solutions in as well as to / from Ireland. Many of these reasons are immediately realized due to access to affordable power, redundant network and bandwidth capacity along with a variety of data center providers that offer an array of services sustained by the 5 Ps: Policy, People, Pedigree, Pipes, and Power. On top of that is a very attractive business management structure, implemented by Ireland, which is keenly interested to bring new businesses into the market. Ireland supports this initiative through attractive fiscal structures, access to a skilled workforce and full support of the U.S. Safe Harbor and Patriot Acts – ensuring data asset compliance for companies large and small.
