What's the data center of the future look like in the cloud era? Come join the discussion with Brian Lillie, who as CIO of Equinix is operating 100 facilities worldwide. Equinix is one of six companies we recently feature in our article, 6 Models Of The Modern Data Center. Lillie will discuss data center architecture, cloud versus company-owned data centers, the key role of networks and carriers, plus all the questions you bring as part of this interactive discussion.

Brian Lillie, CIO of Equinix, is on the frontlines of data center building and operations. Equinix operates 100 facilities that serve as networking hubs for Equinix customers; one of their essential features is the carrier-neutral “meet me” rooms, where customer connect to one of many potential network providers. Lillie will talk the importance of network carrier choice and the other things that characterize the heart of the modern data center. One major decision is where to build it and Equinix chooses sites where urban crowding often interferes with ease of construction.
