DCD Colo + Cloud will bring together senior business, operations and technology professionals from the world’s major colocation, cloud, telecoms and other data center and managed service providers to discuss the future of this rapidly growing data center sector. IoT, Smart Cities, Big Data and Clouds are driving the industry forward whilst IaaS in all its forms is providing end-user organizations with even more ways to purchase and provision new infrastructure capacity. The conversation at Colo+Cloud will focus on how data center services companies must evolve to be customer-centric and technology relevant.

Launched in 2015 in Chicago off the back off the hugely successful DatacenterDynamics global series of conferences, this year DCD Colo+Cloud has moved to Dallas, one of the USAs most important interconnect and data center hubs.

With a full day of pre-conference activities followed by a full day conference and exhibition the event will include 40+ hours of expert panels, keynote presentations, interactive workshops and roundtables, not to mention an expo showcasing the latest technologies. In less than 24 hours you will network, learn and share your way to a more decisive 2017.
