EdgePresence CIO Joins Premier 7×24 Conference Panel on June 14
EdgePresence’s Chief Information Officer, Bill Radford, will speak this coming Monday, June 14, on the “Connectedness 2.0 – How the Convergence of 5G, IoT, and Edge Computing Will Alter the Data Center Ecosystem” panel at the 7×24 Exchange International Spring 2021 Conference in San Antonio.
The data center industry has been evolving since its inception. Today’s advances are just the next step in that evolutionary path. In many ways, the distributed processing model being adopted today is really a full circle from where the industry first started in IT closets 45 years ago. As this next step comes into focus for the industry, it is important to better understand where it is going. The edge systems, in many ways, are just starting to take hold in the industry in a meaningful way. From cloud proliferation, to monetization of apps, to autonomous vehicle response and control, edge systems and the data centers will eventually dominate the landscape. With all of the potential uses these sites will take on many forms and land in many places. Moderated by Jason Sanders, Division Manager for Turner Construction, Radford’s panel will explore the implications of how these systems and sites will affect the industry and what that affect will have on us all. Other panelists include Richard Bralley, Director of Vertiv; Ron Mann, VP of Engineering for TAS; and Tom Widawsky, East Region Tech Principal for HDR Inc.
The 7×24 conference is designed for anyone involved with 7×24 infrastructures – IT, data center, disaster recovery, cyber security and network/telecommunication managers, computer technologists, facility or building managers, supervisors and engineers. Vendors, consultants, or anyone concerned with uninterrupted access to critical information also will find the conference of value. For more information or to register, visit https://conferences.
