Which Way Does Compass Point?
Compass Data Centers' Chris Crosby (second from left with Cologix's Jay Newman, DataBank's Jerry Blair, T5 Data Center's Craig McKesson, and Chicago Title's Holden Heil at a recent Bisnow event) just revealed his 2014 predictions in a column he wrote for Data Center Dynamics. Here's a highlight of a few of his Nostradamus visions:
- Larger players will buy smaller players to expand their footprints.
- Customers will demand verification from data center operators on their claims, especially in the Tier III world.
- Firms like IBM and Iron Mountain will begin to offer data center solutions.
- And finally, both Jennifer Anniston and Kim Kardashian will be dumped but will "sink their clutches into some new unsuspecting sucker, I mean paramour, within days of their heart wrenching breakups."
