The Silicon Hills were alive and the Texas star shone brightly as the who’s who of digital infrastructure gathered for the inaugural edition of Datacloud USA!
And just, wow – where should we start? ! Organizers of the Datacloud Global Congress in Monaco have taken their well-known event across the pond to launch a new event experience with an American twist in none other than Austin, Texas – one of the tech hubs in the fastest growing in the United States. JSA’s top team members were on hand at the event right in the center of it all and are here to say “They made it!”
A Powerful Conference Program: Sustainability, Hybrid Cloud Strategies and Women in Data Centers
The energy of the conference was described by attendees with words such as ‘inspiring’, ‘thought-provoking’ and even ‘electric’. Featuring the industry’s top thought leaders from North America and beyond, the agenda touched on many of the major topics facing the digital infrastructure community, from sustainability to the challenges of supply chain, 5G applications, hybrid data cloud strategies and ESG initiatives.
Buffy Harakidas, Executive Vice President of Account Strategy and Partnerships at JSA, moderated a critical discussion on the implications of limited space and power, as well as a second panel on encouraging the next generation of women in the industry to increase diversity. “Datacloud USA 2022 attracted a very elite group of industry leaders that resulted in some incredible conversations about how we can collectively move the digital infrastructure industry forward,” says Harakidas. “These are challenging times on many levels, and the sharing of spirit was inspiring about what we can do together for a better, more diverse and sustainable future.”
Networking was alive at Datacloud USA
After the sessions, conference attendees attended some of the best networking opportunities and events. From the opening night reception overlooking the chic southern Omni Barton Creek Resort to the poolside cabana parties to the Thai-inspired Cloud, Culture and Cocktails party at Sway hosted by iMasons and Women Tech Forum, the LIVE experiences were second to none. “It was great to be back together in Austin for unparalleled networking,” said Kealey Dorian, Media Relations Manager at JSA. “Whether meeting new relationships or chatting with our customers in the beautiful setting of Austin, Datacloud USA provided the perfect opportunity to converse with the best in the industry.”
