The Future of the Data Center, and How We Get There

Posted on Posted in Chapter News, Meetings

Session Summary:

The next-generation data center will not be the center for your data. In fact, we might not even call it a data center anymore as data will be distributed in the cloud, managed hosted, and/or multiple colocation facilities.

However, the data center is not dead – far from it. IT teams must increase their agility by taking automation and orchestration initiatives to the next level.

This session will address the top 2018 data center modernizations, trends, and initiatives. We will discuss how we got here and how data centers are evolving over the next 5-10 years.
