6/8/2018 | 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
As the enterprise computing world is increasingly influenced by the Internet of Things (IoT), data center demand will continue to rise exponentially. For building owners and operators, the IoT means that their buildings and operations will be connected to the global network, the Internet, with a high requirement for fault tolerance, business continuity and cybersecurity. Having a building ‘go down’ or reduce its performance is not an option. For this reason, anyone managing real estate applications and/or smart buildings knows that the data center is critical to overall strategy. This tour to the Switch Data Center in Las Vegas will give attendees an upfront view of possibly the most technologically advanced, sustainable data center in the world.
