The rapid movement to cloud computing is driving demand for data centers and storage facilities faster than anyone would have imagined several years ago. Changing user requirements and security concerns are altering the way data centers are designed and operated.

Our panelists will address the most pertinent issues, including what is driving demand for data centers now, what are user requirements, the new technologies are required to meet these needs, and what's new in data center design & construction

They'll also take a look at the opportunities for the data center providers and the commercial real estate community involved in this asset class, the trends going forward in Chicago and nationally, and how are these spaces being built out, and to what requirements.
