Strengthening Connectivity and Digital Infrastructure in the Southwest
Phoenix is the 5th largest US data center market, and an important and vital international digital hub. During this panel discussion, we will explore why Phoenix became the go to hub to serve the Southwest, and how data center operators and network providers can align to simplify connectivity while advancing digital infrastructure.

From Data Center Site Selection to Delivery: How are Expansion Strategies and Sustainability Objectives Shifting?
The Phoenix market is experiencing significant growth, delivering 130MW of absorption from 2020 to 2021 with little sign of slowing. As the market growth continues to scale, have data center development strategies changed? Do you build or buy to keep up with your growth? With power costs, availability, taxes, and real estate challenges in California, how is the Southwest positioned to contend as an alternative market? How are developers, owners, enterprises circumnavigating the region’s water scarcity and expanding their infrastructure with sustainability in mind?

The Future of Infrastructure in the Cloud Age: Data Center Technology and Management Approaches to Facilitate Efficient Operations
Data center management is essentially regarded as a mature market, however, as the needs of IT users are evolving to achieve greater operational/cost efficiency, there is constant innovation taking place. How are data center environments changing to support next generation cloud infrastructures? How have priorities shifted in the wake of more stringent facility efficiency requirements, if at all? Latency, resiliency, sustainability and security - where do these stand against the other in today’s environment?

The State of the Data Center Market: A Big-Picture Outlook on the Growth of Greater Phoenix, the Southwest and a Sustainable Future
As the data center industry as a whole continues to benefit from global digitization and secular technology trends, which were only fueled by the pandemic, there were certain regions that received more upside than others. When it comes to hyperscale demand, Phoenix was one of the most active markets in 2021. What are the main drivers for growth in this region and how does it compare to other domestic markets that have seen comparable growth? What are other high growth markets doing differently than Phoenix to acclimate to rising demand trends? How long will it last? How are stakeholders balancing between growth, development, renewable energy and water conservation - and most recently, inflationary pressures? What can we learn from this market?
