Plenary panel: Is sale-leaseback the final destination? Demystifying the infrastructure ownership model of tomorrow
With the rise in cloud migration, the colocation data center is no longer the destination for IT but rather part of a global logistical fabric for service delivery. As such, sale-leaseback transactions are growing in strategic importance to the modern-day owners of enterprise data centers keen to offset the expensive, non-strategic real estate and venture into a ‘pay-as-you-go’ model for computing infrastructure. There are however limitations to moving from identifying as a owner-operator to that of a tenant.
Our presenters will chime in on dynamism of the sale-leaseback landscape, hone in on whether there are still advantages to enterprise operators owning a facility outright and how colocation providers can best capitalize from the financial transaction.
