The rules and selection criteria for data center site selection have evolved over the past decade, and the stakes keep getting higher. The appetite for data is predicted to grow at a compound annual rate of 61% over the next five years, according to IDC. This need for data is leading to rapid expansion of hyperscale data center design and construction. Site selection decisions impact construction schedules, costs and scalability. Seeking the best value, many of these hyperscale data center clients require clandestine site selection activities. With over 15 years experience selecting data center sites, Jennifer will share her "Fight for Site" stories and lessons learned.
