Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Colo Atl, a leading provider of carrier-neutral colocation, data center and interconnection solutions, announces today that its Owner and Founder, Tim Kiser, will serve as session moderator at IMN’s Spring Data Center Forum on Financing, Investing, and Real Estate Development. The conference, which takes place May 29-30 at The Conrad Hotel in New York, assesses the latest issues heading key stakeholders’ agendas from both the enterprise end-user and data center perspectives.
Mr. Kiser will moderate the panel titled, “Data Center Design & Construction: Addressing Cost, Inefficiencies, Risk & Meeting the Needs of Future Demands & Technologies,” taking place on Thursday, May 29th at 12:00pm. Critical questions to be addressed in the panel include: Is data center design becoming customer vs. provider driven? What are customers asking for and expecting? Is the most cost-effective way to build big for volume? When is going bigger not necessarily cheaper/better? What will servers look like in the next 5-10 years? What will be the implications for power density? The data center environment? Overall data center design?
Session panelists include Stephen Madaffari, Partner, Data Centers Delivered; Vello Ehvert, President, Ehvert Engineering Inc.; Mike Fernholz, JE DUNN Construction; Rich Hering, Technical Director Mission Critical Facilities, M+W Group; and Mike Hagan, Vice President-Data Center Solutions Provider Division, Schneider Electric.

I look forward to leading my peers in a thoughtful and engaging discussion.”
