The Focus on the Future
It's always amazing to look ahead. But this year we're doing things a bit differently. We'll still look to the future, but this year we'll be discussing practical applications of real technologies! Augmented and virtual reality in the data center? You bet, get ready to put on some VR gear to literally see the future of data center management. Or, want to experience liquid cooling? Get ready to see it on the showroom floor. This year we'll be applying future technologies to modern use-cases! New content and speakers aimed to attract young professionals in the data center industry.
Data Centers -- Up close and personal
Have you noticed just how amazing and active the data center industry is today? Mergers, acquisitions, unparalleled growth are all happening in this space. Why is this all happening? Because data centers are really cool! And what better way to experience that coolness than being up close and personal with a real-life data center! Haven't seen one in person yet? This is your chance! We'll be doing site tours with some of the most advanced data centers in the market!
An entirely new approach and discussion around sustainability
The discussion around sustainability only continues to evolve. Now more than ever before, entire teams, compensation structures, and even corporate leadership are all focusing on sustainability. Yes, we've discussed this in the past. But this year is different because we'll be discussing real solutions, how sustainability will be impacting your facilities, and new approaches to create a greener future. Get ready to discuss new technologies, sustainable financing, and what future sustainable designs will look like. Natural resources are scarce. For the first time ever, we'll be discussing how we as an industry are focusing on new solutions like water sustainability, power research, new battery solutions, and even nuclear-powered data centers!
Sustainable debt, and new investments in the data center industry
Our industry is growing faster than ever before. In one day alone we saw two of the largest mergers ever in the data center space. This year, we're expanding the conversation to a new topic. Sustainable debt, investments, and ESG. This year's conference will have more investors, capital finance leaders, and people who are very interested in learning how sustainable debt will impact the future of the data center industry. Specifically, we'll be discussing which sustainable solutions will make the biggest impact on investments and growth in the data center space. You won't want to miss these conversations!
A new focus on careers, networking, and development
The future of the data center is bright, diverse, and inclusive. However, it'll take ALL of you to get to that better place. This year we'll be hearing from, literally, the future of the data center industry. New sessions, workshops, and even internship opportunities will be available at this year's conference. We'll hear what's important, how to get the best talent into the data center space, and -- this the cool part -- we're partnering with schools and universities to make a real difference! You'll hear about all-new programs in schools, how you can get involved, and where you can turn for young and talented people to help fill your data centers!
