Dallas-Fort Worth AFCOM Chapter Hosts: "The Challenge of Choice - Enterprise, Colocation, Cloud, Edge, Hybrid - Where Do I Put My Infrastructure?"

On May 11, 2021, the Dallas-Fort Worth AFCOM Chapter hosted their Spring event: "The Challenge of Choice - Enterprise, Colocation, Cloud, Edge, Hybrid - Where Do I Put My Infrastructure?"

Data Centers came in one flavor – enterprise, until colocation appeared on the menu.  Then followed cloud in a bewildering array of flavors, then hybrid, and now edge which we’re still struggling to understand.  What’s a data center manager to do?


Experts in colocation, cloud, and the edge, and an end-user all shared their perspectives.  Then an expert in guiding IT leaders through this problem shared practical processes to sort it all out and help attendees make wise decisions for their companies.
