Why This Matters

What You'll Learn:

  • What's on the horizon for data center operations? What role will remote monitoring, use of AI, and IoT in the ops stack play in new facilities?
  • How are data center providers adapting operations to meet efficiency and sustainable efforts? 
  • How does the increase in demand for high-density and edge solutions impact cooling strategies? Which solutions are providers exploring for expanding facilities?
  • How is aging infrastructure limiting operations and design? How can energy requirements drive facility adoption? 

 

How You'll Do More Business: Find out how operators are leveraging to drive facility performance, implement new technologies, and which remote capabilities are changing to accommodate new facility types. 

 

Who You'll Meet: Vice presidents of operations, heads of facilities, developers, providers, architects, brokers, general contractors, and directors of sustainability.

 

Why You Should Attend: To learn about leading solutions innovating facility operations, which strategies providers are exploring, and what end-users want from new and legacy facilities. 

 

What You Get: Access to all live content, panel replays on-demand, and live networking that is dynamic and actually useful. Networking tools include direct messaging, lobby chat, and speed networking which have led to over 7,000 matches this year.
