NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Latisys, a leading provider of hybrid cloud hosting and data center solutions, today announced that Latisys CEO Pete Stevenson has been selected to participate on a panel at the Information Management Network's (IMN) 4th Annual Spring Forum on Financing, Investing and Real Estate Development for Data Centers on May 29 at the Conrad New York Hotel in New York City.
Attended by some of the most prominent data center owners, tenants, investors, capital and service providers, the conference addresses both the enterprise end-user and data center perspective as it examines the latest issues heading key stakeholders' agendas.
Mr. Stevenson joins moderator Peter Hopper, CEO & Co-Founder, DH Capital, along with fellow panelists Michael Boccardi, President & CEO, Cervalis LLC; Chris Crosby, CEO, Compass Datacenters; Hunter Newby, CEO, Allied Fiber, and Tony Wanger, President, IO, on the panel titled, "President/CEO Wholesale & Hybrid Player Perspective: Being Ahead of the Game" taking place Thursday, May 29, at 10:00 AM..
This session will examine key industry dynamics impacting both retail and wholesale data center services, IT infrastructure services, and data center business strategies. The distinguished panel will address the following questions and issues:
- Are the boundaries between retail and wholesale data center services blurring or becoming more distinct?
- Wholesale going to retail colocation: Will it move the needle, or is it a defensive move? If you are not already offering retail colo, do you intend to offer it? Why?
- What are your end-users looking for? Have you expanded your service offerings in the past 6-12 months? If so, to what? Cloud? Managed hosting? If not, why not? Can data centers still be pure-play in this market?
- How do you see end-user requirements evolving over the next 2-5+ years? What technology will you be investing in to meet these needs? What will be the biggest obstacles to meeting these client needs?
- Growth strategy: Are you expanding within existing data center markets or going off the beaten path? What new sites would you consider/are you considering in the US? Internationally? What is your business logic behind this? What are your key site selection decision factors?
- Build vs. buy vs. partner? What do you look for in an acquisition? In a JV partner? Are the days of building over?
- Do you have legacy estate? If so, how are you dealing with it?
- Securing financing; Prioritizing your capital and cost management initiatives
Mr. Stevenson will provide executive insight into ever-changing financial and regulatory requirements for data centers and infrastructure services, as well the rapid shift toward deployment of flexible hybrid and managed IT infrastructure services -- particularly by large and midsize enterprises.
"The data center has firmly established itself as the commerce platform of the 21st century," Stevenson said.

As a true builder and broker of flexible IT solutions ranging from colocation to hybrid cloud solutions, our business momentum is accelerating as enterprise customers deploy hybrid IT solutions optimized to scale for current and future business requirements."

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.

A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost...
