The central office is the original data center in the sense that had many of the attributes for what a data center requires, such as reliable power, physical security and bandwidth. With the collapse of the switch from racks of equipment to virtually nothing, much of the space in many central offices sits idle.

This panel will look at what needs to be done to convert a C.O. to data center and look at things such as:

  • How to differentiate from the data center behemoths
  • The typical upgrade costs and typical revenue per square foot that could be expected.
  • Typical physical modifications necessary to meet data center demands
  • Scaling beyond the central office – what happens when you have success.
