DCD>Debate: Exodus & The City - What does it mean for the future of site selection?

The saga of New York City's data center market unfolds amid exorbitant power costs and regulatory hurdles. The power disparity between boroughs like Brooklyn and issues concerning 5G deployment, city ordinances, and emission regulations create a complex landscape for data center operations. Outside of the Big Apple, the allure of smaller cities that need and welcome digital infrastructure poses an intriguing alternative to NYC and other 'NFL Cities'. Are MegaCampuses indicative of how demand has outstripped cities like New York, and how can new areas capitalize on their regional benefits? How are industry players overcoming constrained power and space, while navigating evolving customer needs? Will solutions be hardware or software-orientated? Is NYC still a great place for business, or are other areas showing us how it's done?

Held under Chatham House Rule, DCD>Debates are open discussions led by a panel of experts, on the biggest issues to face the industry.
