USGBC Virginia - Building a Modern & Efficient Data Center



As technology and connectivity continue to grow, data centers are becoming an integral part of private and public sector success. These hubs of information require specialized knowledge to ensure they are safe, environmentally friendly, sustainable, and secure from cyber-attacks. Understanding what data centers are and how we should build them is critical for businesses in Coastal Virginia. As the landscape of Virginian connectivity evolves, businesses should understand the risks and requirements of data centers.

In this presentation Mark Klett, founder and CEO of Klett Consulting Group, Inc., discusses two critical components for data center development: environmental sustainability and cyber security. While these two topics are rarely discussed together, they are both integral to data center sustainability. After this presentation, listeners will understand what a green data center is, human safety and wellness practices involved in data center development, environmental factors and landscapes to consider, and how to bake-in cybersecurity from a data center’s development.
