e-shelter Partnerforum 2018
Blockchain in the Data Center
Blockchain technology, most simply defined as a shared, immutable ledger, has the potential to be the disruptive technology that redefines entire industries.
As new technologies develop and are adopted by organizations and consumers, affected industries are forced to adapt or be replaced. It has been said that blockchain will do for business what the Internet did for information and communication. The basic concept of Blockchain is so revolutionary yet simple that this technology can become the symbol of the next industrial revolution. Although the ledger system has existed for a very long time, today’s Blockchain approach requires highly advanced information technology to achieve its full potential. Blockchain is poised to impact the way business is done across the globe.
Where do we stand on this topic and what is its significance for the data center? We will address these questions at this year’s e-shelter Partner Forum. We warmly invite you to the 6th Partnerforum at the e-shelter event center on: Thursday, September 27, 2018 in Frankfurt.
Communication and information sharing make for good partnerships. The e-shelter partner forum has become a marketplace for trends and innovation and, with many exciting topics, we want to give you not only a stage for new ideas, but also, give you an opportunity to network over an aperitif.

Before the event, there will be a tour of the e-shelter data center and Innovation Lab, which gives attendees a behind the scenes glimpse of a modern, high availability data center.
