Episode 54: Exploring a cloud-enabled Australia with NEXTDC

July 20, 2022 | 19:23

On this podcast, we speak with NEXTDC’s Chief Customer and Commercial Officer, David Dzienciol, about Australia’s cloud and data center environment. The conversation includes current drivers of data center growth in Australia, how enterprises and the public sector are coping with the necessities of hybrid IT plus how the tyranny of distance and the emergence of new industries such as space and renewable energy are driving unique customer requirements for bespoke hosting, edge infrastructure and network services. We also cover NEXTDC’s view on the critical role DCs play in holistic sovereignty and security risk management, the tightening supply chain environment and the war for talent.
