The 4th annual DatacenterDynamics Colo + Cloud will be held October 30 in Dallas at the Hyatt Regency Dallas. The event will focus on 5G network connections and how it will affect a variety of data center solutions, including hybrid solutions and edge networking. According to George Rockett, DatacenterDynamics CEO, “The interaction of edge and 5G connections promises to provide new industrial capabilities and efficiencies and the delivery of new and faster services to consumers. For telco, colo, and cloud services companies the challenge is probably knowing where to begin”.

There will be a pre-conference on Monday, October 29th, featuring the DCD>Edge Focus Day, where executives and engineering/technology professionals are invited to explore the challenges and opportunities associated with edge data centers.

The conference itself will open with a keynote on current and future cloud architecture and capacity, with the understanding that more workflows are being moved to the cloud and networking speeds will increase with the deployment of 5G connections. It will be followed by a panel on how data center operators have taken cloud adoption into consideration when building facilities and services. hour-long discussions on critical industry issues for small, focused peer groups. The full agenda is available here.
