From permitting to final rollout, this session will touch on every aspect of bringing digital infrastructure to life. This won't be a typical Data Center 101 session. Instead, participants will be guided through the journey and life of a data center. Basically, we're going to "build" a data center together!

If you're new in this industry, this session will cover all technical and business aspects of working with data center architecture. We'll define key terms, review specific data center components, and go into the business of running and operating data center facilities. This Data Center 101 masterclass will also showcase how leaders in the data center industry are leveraging emerging technologies to build all-new digital infrastructure. This will not be an overly technical session; it’s designed for beginners and experienced data center professionals alike.
