DCF Data Center Executive Roundtable, 3Q 2018

Sept. 28, 2018
In our 12th DCF Data Center Executive Roundtable, thought leaders debate the status of hyperscale data centers, DCIM, lithium-ion batteries and underwater data centers.

Welcome to our 12th Data Center Executive Roundtable, a quarterly feature showcasing the insights of thought leaders on the state of the data center industry, and where it is headed. In our Third Quarter 2018 roundtable, we examine four topics: whether hyperscale has become its own segment of the wholesale market, what complex hybrid IT infrastructure means for DCIM software, the adoption of lithium-ion batteries in data center UPS systems, and whether underwater data centers are brilliant or crazy.

Here is the full question and answer session, organized by topic.

Here are links to the individual Q&A summaries for each of our distinguished panel members:

The conversation is moderated by Data Center Frontier Founder and editor Rich Miller.
