Colocation and Cloud On-Ramp Preparation: Planning and Best Practices
Advisor: Kirk Killian, President, Data Center Selection/Procurement, Partners National Mission Critical Facilities - Kirk Killian is the President of Partners National Mission Critical Facilities, and advises corporate clients in procuring self-operated and colocation data centers worldwide.

Colocation is becoming an integral part of many data center strategies, and coming up with the most effective cloud implementation to support it is imperative. Whether you’re designing a data center from the ground up or trying to determine how a co-location strategy fits into your current planning, you’ve got to have the right information and the right tools to avoid making costly mistakes. At this Leaders Lab, attendees will work with our advisor to discuss and debate decision making on cloud strategies, workload provisioning, site selection, partnering, and more. Attendees will bring their real-world experiences to discuss with their Leaders Lab colleagues and learn from the advisor which best practices make sense for their specific data center strategies to create actionable plans that will be included in the resulting whitepaper.
