BASELAYER is excited to announce our participation in the 16th annual Data Center & Cloud Infrastructure Transformation Summit. DCD 2018 is happening in New York City on May 1 and 2, 2018, with the Edge Focus Day taking place April 30.BASELAYER will be joining 1,500 other professionals whose day job is keeping the digital world up and running. From “mud to cloud”, this event covers the full ecosystem for the redefinition of enterprise data centers, and spotlights the re-shaping of the economics of digital business, IT, and data center service delivery. The summit features over 100 hours of expert panels, keynote presentations, interactive workshops, and roundtables. The expo will showcase 100 of the latest technologies.

On May 1, BASELAYER’s Chief of Staff, Samir Shah, will present Edge Infrastructure: Breaching the Bandwidth Bottleneck in a breakout session. This session will look at the latency bottlenecks in existing systems and examine how applications in a 5G world will push compute/storage closer to wireless signal sources. We will also cover site deployments to address these latency shortcomings and discuss the need for an interdisciplinary approach to infrastructure in order to deliver the performance for this next highly anticipated stage of digital revolution.

Also on May 1, BASELAYER’s Bill Slessman and Christopher Perez will present Imagine It, Build It: A Lego-Inspired Approach to Data Center Design on stage in Hall 2. This session will take a peek at our “Lego” style design concepts, and examine Puget Sound Energy’s leveraging of our mix-and-match approach to solve their recent modular data center build. In addition, we will outline how the multiple power and cooling options can combine to deliver flexible, scalable, and sustainable infrastructure anywhere you need it. And ultimately, we will examine the ways that dynamic visualization enhances modular assets and allows operators new insights into their data center environment.

In addition to the summit, DCD’s Focus Day on April 30 will provide an interactive pre-conference concentrating on deploying data centers at the edge and assessing the new technologies and architectures to support this. BASELAYER’s Susanna Kass will participate in two panel discussions: The Practicalities of Sustainable Edge Computing in Dense Urban Environments and Data Centers at the Edge in 2025.
