  • Water is Life (Stream Data Centers): Water is a resource we must acknowledge as finite, and we must safeguard it accordingly. Stream Data Center’s Chris Bair and Yvonne Deir share their perspectives on data center water use and how to optimize water consumption.
  • How The Supply Chain Crisis Should Change Our Approach Moving Forward (ProLift Rigging): While the supply chain crisis has had major negative effects, there are some positives from our current situation. Bill Tierney, Senior Vice President, at ProLift Rigging explores key lessons that can be learned from the supply chain crisis.
  • Living on the Edge (Kohler Power Systems): The edge is no longer a specific size or as precise of a place as it once was, but just because it has grown more complex doesn’t mean that we can’t distinguish what or where it is. Sean Farney, Director of Data Center Marketing at Kohler Power Systems explores the ever evolving definition of the edge.
