A world first at Data Centre World 2016 For the first time ever, Data Centre World will host its very own live data centre. Housing products from 28 suppliers, the DCW Green Data Centre is an interactive feature that showcases the practical implementation of products from cooling units and fans, to cables and perimeter fencing. This is the only feature of its kind at any exhibition in the world. Data Centre World has joined forces with Dunwoody, a leading build and design consultancy, to produce the effective and efficient running data centre, right in the heart of Data Centre World. Over the two days you will have the opportunity to walk through and see the make up of a successful data centre, and learn about the puzzle of products which complete the data centre jigsaw. 29
