Are they coming to take advantage of green hydro power? What is driving their decisions to come to the Pacific Northwest?"

"As always, we're looking forward to catching up with like-minded experts and educating people on our services – infrastructure as a service, colocation and the Cloud," said Eric Hulbert, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Opus Interactive.

We're always excited to have those conversations – we want to help and we want to learn how we can help. Then of course we love to learn about the 360 degree perspective of a data center, how it's growing, specifically for this conference and in the Pacific Northwest, and how it will shape 2018-2020."
