Jeff Moerdler will be speaking on a panel titled, "The State of the Data Center Market: A Big-Picture Outlook on the Growth of Greater Phoenix, the Southwest and a Sustainable Future," at the DICE Southwest: Data Center Demand, Drivers and Sustainable Solutions in the Southwest event on May 3.
As the data center industry as a whole continues to benefit from global digitization and secular technology trends, which were only fueled by the pandemic, there were certain regions that received more upside than others. When it comes to hyperscale demand, Phoenix was one of the most active markets in 2021. What are the main drivers for growth in this region and how does it compare to other domestic markets that have seen comparable growth? What are other high growth markets doing differently than Phoenix to acclimate to rising demand trends? How long will it last? How are stakeholders balancing between growth, development, renewable energy and water conservation - and most recently, inflationary pressures? What can we learn from this market?
