As Digital Realty's business has grown and evolved into an industry leader, the data centre landscape has gone through dramatic ups and downs and, as a whole, looks very different today. Through both the dotcom bust of the early 2000's and the global financial crisis of 2008, Digital Realty has remained strong by keeping an eye on the future and striving to deliver greater value by evolving their data centres to support a greater portion of a customer's IT lifecycle.
Today, data centres are fast growing and far-reaching in its social and economic implications. Hyperscalers are expanding at light speed, whilst edge players are also staying busy with expansions of their own in markets outside of traditional data centre hotspots.
Digital Realty CEO Bill Stein sat down with Data Centre Knowledge in May to discuss these topics and more on The Data Centre Podcast. If you would like to learn more about Digital Realty’s history and how it has taken advantage of financial disruptions, listen to the podcast in its entirety (34:47).
