Roundtables (12:50pm to 5:30pm, followed by DCD>Colo+Cloud Welcome Reception)
The “big three” of digital transformation today, Content Delivery (streaming, interactive), IoT (in the broadest “Everything” sense and Mobile Devices (5G, IPv6) are driving massive new data streams for network edge compute. The IT infrastructure stack layers are being designed in radical new ways to meet this exponentially growing new demand. And so, too, are the physical mechanical and electrical infrastructure system designs being challenged. There more variants in edge compute data center design/builds today as there were variants in the entire mission critical industry of a very few years ago.
This by-application-only series of thought-leader delegate roundtable conversations is for senior executives and engineering/technology professionals from the full-stack data center and cloud end-user eco-system communities looking to better understand the challenges and opportunities on the high-velocity edge of business and industry change.
