Ireland Local Chapter Meeting
The inaugural iMasons Ireland Local Chapter meeting was held on November 16, 2021, 15:00 – 16:00 CET
Venue: Within Data Centre Ireland – Landsowne Room at the RDS
iMasons was established in 2016 on the West coast USA. In order to scale, and deliver the platform globally, iMasons is establishing Local or Regional Chapters.
There are issues that face the industry that can be better addressed collectively – and iMasons is the platform to coordinate and focus this effort. Global iMasons initiatives, such as bridging the talent gap and addressing diversity and inclusion can be more effectively executed regionally by iMasons who understand the dynamics of that region.
Chapter Meeting Main Topic: iMasons Data Center Sustainability Framework
Both hyper-scale and global enterprises are driving for change, insisting on a more sustainable and carbon-neutral future. Currently, there is no standardized measure as to what constitutes a “sustainable data center”, nor is there a scale to measure a data center’s progress in achieving sustainability goals. The iMasons Sustainability Committee has developed a Sustainability Data Center Framework which provides an industry best practice for building and running a sustainable data center.
The Framework was developed based on input from members and leaders within the iMasons member community. This proposed framework was workshopped at the Ireland Chapter Meeting and all feedback submitted to the IM Sustainability Committee for review / inclusion.
Thanks to Marcus Doran and Bridget O’Dea (iMasons Foundation Partner Rahi) for their help in organizing and supporting this event and the IM Ireland Chapter
