Wednesday Keynote: Prioritizing Highly Evolved Infrastructure and Fully Optimized Operations, Are You Ready?

Date: June 12, 2024, 8:45 a.m. — 9:45 a.m. EDT

Speaker: Ron Davis, Vice President, Digital Infrastructure Operations, Uptime Institute

State-of-the-art infrastructure design and construction must be seamlessly integrated with operational excellence to support reliable, secure, and effective data center operations. A well-located, purpose-built facility, designed and built to include reliable, efficient, and high-performance infrastructure, provides the foundation for a fully functional data center, while a top-tier data center operations program facilitates its optimal utilization. This holistic approach maximizes the potential of advanced equipment and technologies but also mitigates risks, minimizes downtime, manages change, and enhances overall resilience. The synergy that occurs when you prioritize highly evolved infrastructure and fully optimized operations is a critical factor in supporting a growing, yet increasingly competitive industry.
