Be Involved in Data Centre Policy

​National and European policy regarding energy consumption, privacy, data sovereignty and internet infrastructure can have a significant impact on the colocation operator community.

Changes in policy have a considerable impact on the European data centre operator community. The EUDCA is working with NTA’s, national governments and the European Commission to ensure we have full visibility into any potential legislation likely to impact on the data centre industry, and in particular our own members.

The EUDCA policy committee is run by Associate Members, ensuring that any action taken by the association is in the best interests of our community and not aimed to benefit any one individual organisation. Several Assoicate Members have committed substantial funds to a policy account and this gives us the resource to undertake research and lobbying activities aimed at ensuring a level playing field for all operators, regardless of size and geographical reach.

Current initiatives include: Leading the way by jointly administering the Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact with CIPSE, responding to a variety of consultations from the European Commission, and lobbying at the European Commission to ensure that data centre operators are recognised as an industry and are included in considerations around energy taxation and clean energy initiatives.

Increase your Sales Reach

​All EUDCA members benefit from increased global visibility and lead-generation by utilising our global marketing platform.

Increased competition from both within and outside Europe, price pressure and changes in business models, all mean that data centre operators face challenges in customer acquisition and retention. For many of our members, gaining greater awareness and increasing geographical reach through traditional channels is prohibitively expensive. Through working collaboratively, the EUDCA offers all members, whatever their size, the opportunity to distribute content, publicise events, reach new markets and ultimately attract new business.

The EUDCA works tirelessly on behalf of its members to ensure a level playing field in terms of exposure at a national and global level . From our presence at key industry events in Europe, Asia and the USA , to our global distribution of a comprehensive member directory and our ability to facilitate global content distribution, all members can be confident that they are reaching a far larger audience than would be possible on their own. Despite the current pandemic, the EUDCA has taken part in a number of digital conferences including Datacloud Global Congress, Data Centre World, Digital Infra India, Digital Infa Leaders Europe, Edge Global Week and has agreed to take part in NGON & DCI World, Datacloud UK & Ireland and Datacloud Nordics.
