About this talk

Data Centers are continuing to evolve and will remain at the core of digital infrastructure. Today’s global information economy depends on data centers like never before. Whether a data center is on premise, colocated or in the cloud, they are responsible for the entire online infrastructure of a company, and the data centers are crucial to business critical infrastructure.

Join us as we share our experiences and learnings for a hybrid IT world. Topics include: - The value of simplicity in data center design and construction for IT and facility operations - Concurrent maintainability as a “must have” as "live work or deferred maintenance" is no longer acceptable - Tier Certification as a risk management tool for project owners and data center services buyers
