TREX was pleased to host a seminar on Data Centres and World IPv6 Launch results together with sponsors Alcatel-Lucent, Brocade, Cisco Systems, flexOptix and Rittal Oy. The seminar was held on Friday the 14th of September 2012 at Villa Vintti in Kehräsaari (google map) in Tampere from 12:00 to 17:00 and continued as a networking event in their sauna department. The seminar was of value to anyone interested in building data centres or adopting IPv6, and of course to everyone interested in peering at TREX Regional Exchanges Oy.
The global demand for cloud services and content distribution networks has created a surge in data centre construction and innovation. Finland has become one of the favourite countries for building data centres due to the cool climate, cheap energy and proximity to big markets. This seminar will include presentations covering both the physical and logical aspects of designing a data centre.
The World IPv6 Launch was on the 6th of June 2012. The basic idea of that event was that participating organizations enabled IPv6 in their products and services for good. This seminar will have a bunch of presentations dealing with the results and experiences from participating organizations.
The seminar was free to all, but requires registration, because the venue has limited seating. Snacks and beverages was provided during the seminar. Dinner and sauna took place after the seminar.
Registration is now closed.
Parking and Flights
The best place to leave your car during the event is Koskikeskus on the other side of the Tammerkoski rapids.
One World and Star Alliance have direct flights from Stockholm (ARN) or Copenhagen (CPH) to the Tampere-Pirkkala International Airport (TMP). At least Air Baltic and Ryanair also have some direct international flights from other countries.
Flying via Helsinki-Vantaa (HEL) to TMP is also possible with e.g. One World or Star Alliance, but it might be easier to just take the train for that leg of the journey. The trains run every day at least once per hour between 06:00 and 22:00. Bus number 61 takes you from both airports to the closest railway station.
Please note that all times are given in the local time zone (EET DST+3).
