PANEL: The Future of Colocation

With the explosion of data, the demand for flexibility and the cost of running in-house data centres rising sharply,  IT departments are looking at a number of options to keep pace with the rate of change. One solution for this, colocation, is an increasingly popular option due to the increased scalability, connectivity and stability it offers, usually at a more reasonable price than running your own data centre. Join 4 industry experts as they discuss the future of colocation and how it can complement your data centre or cloud strategies.

Chair: Philip Collerton, Uptime Institute
Jon Arnold, Volta Data Centre

Petter Tømmeraas, Green Mountain
Danny Quinn, DataVita
