Major Panel: How will the surge in compute demand - in the core, at the edge, change how we operate digital infrastructure?
By 2025, IDC says worldwide data will grow 61% to 175 zettabytes, with as much of the data residing in the cloud as in data centers.
With both hyperscale and hyperlocal deployments set to explode in the coming year, how are facility management professionals responsible for manning deployments of all sizes ensuring they stay abreast of new approaches to 24/7 uptime with the consolidation of hardware coupled with the virtualization of applications driving up average density per rack to 15-16kW.
Is there still a gulf of understanding between IT and facilities?
