Perspectives on the State of the Data Center
Read about insights and trends in the data center industry in a special Executive Roundtable report from Data Center Frontier.
Randy Rowland, President and GM of Cyxtera Data Center Services at Cyxtera, participated in an Executive Roundtable conducted by Data Center Frontier. The publication features insights on the state of the data center industry on a quarterly basis. In this particular series, the experts examined four topics:
- Trends in hyperscale data center leasing
- Opportunities in edge computing
- Strategies for enterprise transition to third-party facilities
- How powerful new AI hardware is impacting data center design
In terms of edge computing, for example, Rowland shares how a global footprint delivering consistent, exceptional operations is just the start.
“Enterprises should look for providers that can offer a single service agreement for multiple locations yet give them the flexibility to move capacity between markets without penalty,” said Rowland.
Thanks to the team at Data Center Frontier for addressing some essential issues facing enterprises as they adapt their data center strategy to support changing business priorities enabled by advances in AI, edge computing, and hybrid cloud.
