8.30 to 10:30am | By invitation

What will data center resiliency mean by 2030?

This is the first in a series of DCD>Think Tanks for 2021 on Data Centers of the Future that brings together leaders from the data center design and construction ecosystem to talk openly about the challenges the industry faces in meeting increasing capacity requirements whilst responding to new threats and demands. The series will look at resiliency, sustainability, adaptability and efficiency in the context of data center design.

The objective of this first closed-door virtual workshop is to explore why data center resiliency requirements need to evolve and how this can be done. With roundtables and breakout discussions we want to look at the challenge from different stakeholder perspectives and to define areas of common concern. We will use the findings to improve content programming over the coming months - DCD will create a written record of the meeting to share with the participants. The session will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
