State of the Southern Market: Has Growth Been Accounted For? Or Will Momentum Continue?
The Texas data center market was always planned to be big. Before the pandemic the Texas market was not entirely living up to its prospects but post-COVID growth and demand funnels have begun to scale with the pace only accelerating. Part of this acceleration is driven by very capable data center operators, another key driver is the attractive economics of the land and power. With Texas and other southern states demonstrating their competencies and abilities to deliver hyperscaler scale, has the growth been accounted for or is there another leg to come? How does Texas compare to other Southern data center markets?

However, with the chronic workforce shortage, the push for sustainability and increased demand in capacity, optimizing your IT infrastructure has never been more important. How are providers and operators maximizing cost and efficiency for their clients? Where do challenges and inefficiencies remain?
