Our bags are packed, will we see you there?
Sunday morning this time many of us will be in an airport headed towards San Antonio for the 7x24 Exchange Fall Conference. The opportunity to visit with past colleagues, customers, and other industry acquaintances in a jam-packed three and a half days will be a whirlwind at best.
Stop by our booth for a chance to get your hands on our tech & win one of our door prizes!
Between all the catching up over coffee or beers, we're most excited to get feedback from the audience! KatalystDI is now in Beta and you can get your hands on our platform at our booth on Monday and Tuesday. Beyond that, we are conducting a bit of research. If you'd like to give feedback on your challenges as an industry member from any side (owner, operator, contractor) we will enter you into a chance to win one of the door prizes are are giving away.
The sessions we are looking forward to
Construction industry spend is already up by 5% this year after a 12% gain the year before. The global pandemic accelerated the demands in the construction industry, even more so in the data center and mission critical spaces. The keynote: "Chaos is Opportunity" should be particularly salient when we consider how busy we have all been the last couple of years.
The entire program this year looks great, so it was hard to focus on selecting just a couple of sessions we felt were most relevant to the industry challenges we are solving through technology. Across the program there are similar themes of building with predictability, adapting designs and procedures to operate more sustainably, and using technology to do so.
Three sessions we are particularly looking forward to include:
BreakoutC, Monday PM: CIRCULARITY & DATA CENTER SUSTAINABILITY
According to the latest CBRE report, demand in H2 2021 totaled 350MW. To meet this increasing demand from both existing and emerging technologies, data center operators need to shift the focus away from linear supply chain thinking and towards the practice of circularity and resilience
Tuesday AM: FORWARD-LOOKING DATA CENTER DESIGN IN URBAN ENVIRONMENTS
Numerous drivers are forcing change in the way data centers are built. Demand is pulling them into urban environments and technology trends are pushing up densities, while cost metrics and societal factors are applying pressure to reduce consumption of power and water. This means owners and developers are facing new challenges in adapting standards and business practices to successfully navigate these trends in an increasingly competitive market.
Wednesday AM: THE FUTURE OF DATA CENTERS: PERSPECTIVES FROM THE STANDARDS DEVELOPERS AND STAKEHOLDERS
Data center standards are evolving to keep up with the technology inside them, and also the customer behavior shifts, the new regulations, and business objectives. Current data center owners and operators are working to address challenges like reducing their carbon footprint and scarce resource management while also working to increase reliability for mission-critical services and deliver real-time optimization of the data center infrastructure performance. The combination of all these goals and requirements is driving a major shift in the way data centers are built, monitored, operated, powered, and cooled.
