Choosing where to contract data center services is a big decision as it is commonly a long-term commitment and not easy or economical to move. To help datacenter professionals make better decisions panelists will cover some of the most significant changes in data center user demand and how that affects how data center providers make decisions. Speakers will discuss regional growth and leasing statistics and demand trends across North America, Latin America, EMEA, and APAC, and discuss forecasts of future industry growth and where that growth will occur and why.


The panel will discuss how data center geographic demand relates to the many issues customers are concerned about: Cost, proximity to their IT staff and customers, cost of power, tax incentives, geographic risk and geopolitical risk factors. This panel will be of value for both data center service consumers as well as operators.
