One of the top data center markets in the world is Northern California, including Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. The problem is data center supply in Northern California is constrained, real estate and power costs are high, and there is an overhanging risk of earthquakes.

Hyperscale cloud companies and Fortune 1000 enterprises need a data center footprint in Northern California to optimize the performance and resiliency of their applications. But increasingly, the costs and risks of Northern California outweigh the benefits.

In this webinar, Bill Kleyman, Data Center Knowledge contributor and industry expert, will dig deep into the best practices for selecting the right data center location and partner. Harmail Chatha, Director of Global Data Center Operations for hyperscale cloud leader Groupon will talk about their analysis and selection of a Northern California data center location.
