Why You Can't Miss This Data Center Event

What You'll Learn

  • Denver alone has a total of 98MW of data center inventory, with an additional 22MW under construction - how much more growth can we expect to see in the Denver and Colorado Springs market?
  • How are the challenges around price and power limitations in primary markets impacting secondary markets like Denver? What challenges in these markets can we expect to see in the coming year?
  • What types of customers are driving demand in the region? How is it changing?
  • Where are we in the AI hype cycle and what can we expect to see across markets for AI applications?
  • How are operators thinking about liquid cooling and whether or not to apply it in their data centers? How are they incorporating flexibility into the facilities for future changes?
  • How are developers and service providers working to bring more capacity and increasing power consumption while solving for sustainability? Can it be done effectively?
  • Attendees will learn about the design and engineering trends that are taking place given the continued supply chain disruption and the increasing commoditization of AI.
