This June, in New York, the telecom industry’s top thought leaders congregated at Telecom Exchange for an exciting one-day opportunity to collaborate on topics including network security, infrastructure investments and new technologies such as 5G and AI.
Stream Data Centers’ VP of Network and Cloud, Eric Ballard, sat down with Jaymie Scotto Cutaia, CEO of JSA, to discuss his views on the growth of enterprise cloud computing, how Stream is meeting escalating demand for hyperscale data center space across the US and where the company is headed over the next year.
“Over the last two to three years, we have seen a large shift in the enterprise data center space towards public cloud providers,” Eric says in the video interview. “Repeatedly, we have solved cloud interconnection issues for our customers to help them continue to drive their needs into the cloud.”
As a result, the company concentrates on making smart investments in facilities that will meet both the current and future needs of enterprise customers in the markets it serves. “As we continue to run out of data center space in the Dallas area, there are fewer places where one can find the right interconnection with the right power on the right piece of land,” observes Eric. “We believe we have found that with our new hyperscale Garland DFW VII facility. It will have a very large on-site substation and will continue to grow with the demands our customers are bringing to us.”
When questioned about the company’s customer-centric approach to onboarding, Eric responded that Stream sees itself as more than just a supplier of colocation space for its customers. “We have a holistic approach with our customers,” he asserts. “We make sure we are integrated up and down the stack with customers to meet their daily needs. We have all the traditional services a colocation provider offers, but with a more personal touch.”
