Key colocation decisions and their challenges

The face of the colocation customer is changing with new types of decision-makers playing a role in key colocation decisions alongside the IT infrastructure function. Along with a changing customer mix, the demand for colocation services is coming both from enterprises themselves and from those providers serving them. Today, a provider of public cloud (IaaS), SaaS or platform as a service (PaaS) is just as likely to be leasing space inside a colocation datacenter today as a ‘traditional’ enterprise. In this presentation, Mitch Fonseca, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Data Center Services at Cyxtera will share with participants the role new types of decision-makers such as architects, network engineers, cloud engineers and operations teams, play in key colocation decisions, what challenges these decision-makers are looking to solve and practical guidance for these stakeholders to support and scale the various needs and business functions today and in the future.
