The virtual conference for the multi-tenant data center ecosystem

How are colo operators around the world keeping up with unprecedented demand for more MegaWatts?


Originally planned as a live event in the heart of “data center alley”, perhaps the world’s most important colocation hubs, the inaugural and much anticipated DCD>Virginia conference is going virtual in 2020. We've created an immersive virtual conference experience that democratises our content and allows the world to join in and make new connections. Major topics that we'll be discussing include:

  • Will the worldwide halt in construction impact availability in years to come?
  • How have ‘shelter-in-place’ mandates and teleworking changed the course of site operations?
  • What are the unintended consequences of non-stop growth?
  • Is the colocation industry immune to the financial perils exacerbated by COVID-19?

.....and much more. Broadcasting on December 1-3, DCD>Virginia will bring together the major players from the multi-tenant data center ecosystem to discuss the future in-front of and with an anticipated audience of more than 2,000 professionals from around the world.
