Structure: Why are 1.0 Data Centers suddenly sexy?

If you’re looking for someone who is totaly connected in the field of data centers, look no further that Green Data center blogger Dave Ohara.  I met Dave, who is a veteran of HP, Apple and Microsoft, last year at Gartner’s data center summit and learned a lot from him at a our first meeting.  I was therefore very glad to run into him yesterday at the Structure conference.

I got some time with him today and asked Dave a few burning data center questions that have been on my mind.

Some of the ground Dave covers

  • Why all of a sudden are companies first foray’s into data centers becoming hot news?
  • The rise of the marketing and positioning of data centers
  • What are some of the pitfalls of moving from the public cloud or co-los to your own data center (hint: huge learning curve)
  • Your data center design should reflect your business model
