Evolution, Engineering & Connectivity [Includes Video]: What is Set to Change the Data Center Game?

CHARLOTTE, NC – CAPRE’s Data Center Series largely focus on the financial side of the data center equation. But CAPRE knows that it’s also essential to pop the hood and take a look underneath the investment landscape. The session “Evolution, Engineering & Connectivity of the Data Center Supply Side: What Type of Product (Hyperscale, Colocation, Edge) is in the Pipeline, and How Will it Be Wired?” at CAPRE’s Carolinas Data Center Summit was a prime example and illustrative picture of the other side of the equation. “The first question I’d like to throw out there – and really is this for the entire panel, I hope each of you to take a shot at it – is about how we’re taking a look at what’s happening in our industry. The rapidly changing strategies for different aspects of data centers,” began Moderator Dave Meadows, Director of Industry, Standards and Technology at Stulz. “What do you see as, what is staring at us in the face in the next one to two years, that may change how we go about designing data centers and populating data centers?” Vali Sorell, Vice President and Chief Mission Critical Mechanical Engineer at Glumac then went first at sharing his thoughts. “That’s a really timely question, since Dave on past panels of CAPRE in the last couple of years, have actually been talking about liquid cooling in the past couple of years,” began Sorell. “We probably have…
