PARTNER PROFILE: GARY KEOGH

team_gary_keoghAn interview with Gary Keogh, Executive Committee member for Host in Ireland and the Sales Director, Digital Realty, Blanchardstown. Click here to read the interview in its entirety.
Q: Why is Ireland a good place for hosting?Gary Keogh: It is important to look at why Apple did not opt to host in European mainland cities, and chose Denmark and Ireland instead. Ireland has a host of strong factors in its favour, including its clustered development. As the Internet of Things develops and there is good access to the cloud cluster, this will enable Ireland to be even more successful in attracting more global companies. Digital Realty Profile Park has been a great success, with a €½ million saving in air conditioning and cooling costs per data hall per annum. The indirect air cooling innovation has been extremely successful, enabling a supply temperature of 24 degrees Celsius rather than 22 to the data halls. An upside is that there is no humming of fans, which means it is a quiet and comfortable workspace.

Q: Why are you a member of Host In Ireland?GK: Host In Ireland is a powerful initiative and membership conveys credibility. That said, Host In Ireland could be bigger. We need to elevate our profile to the same level as the hyperscale data centres, like Microsoft and Apple. We are collectively equal in size by power compared to these players, 140 MW each. We are part of Host in Ireland so that we amplify the fact that Ireland for hosting is not just for the hyperscale size companies.
