“With the implementation of Dodd-Frank for financial services, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act for healthcare, and the Government’s push towards cloud computing – under both the Federal Cloud Computing Initiative and the Federal Consolidated Data Center Initiative – regulations are imposing great burdens on the data center industry and their ecosystems. This is affecting contracts, SLAs, internal standards, audits, and a cadre of other compliance measures that may end up changing the way data centers can contract, potentially limiting the use of brokers. This trend will only increase over the coming months, but not from Congress, but from the independent federal agencies will the full force of law making ability. Being prepared now may save the business, whether that is a data center, MSP, tenant broker, or any other cloud provider. Join us on September 16 to learn more.” Peter Adrian Kavounas, CEO & President, Cloud Strategix, LLC
