The 2017 September/October issue of Mission Critical is also home to our first colocation supplement.

We have assembled the best in the data center world to lend their expertise on the colocation services industry. Bo Bond from JLL discusses current colocation trends; Dennis D. Cronin, D.MCO writes on what to look for in a colocation relationship; Jeff Klaus of Intel is here to discuss IoT and Big Data in the colocation space; Peter V.K. Funk, Jr., discusses colocation power supply and billing disputes, and Bruce Myatt, P.E., is on hand to provide an overview of colocation and cloud pricing strategies in the U.S.

In addition, we have also included trend reports from industry leaders such as Vertiv, Rittal, Motivair, Siemon, and ESD. And, as a bonus, have included executive summaries of white papers provided by these companies that will be hosted on a special website located on the Mission Critical website at

There are a myriad of issues surrounding colocation and we have just scratched the surface with this supplement. Please let us know your thoughts.
