Panel to address best practices in mission-critical facility infrastructure construction

Feb. 17, 2021
The panel, entitled “Building Design and Construction: Operator Insight,” will provide firsthand insight from high-profile operators of North American data center infrastructure facilities.

Gil Santaliz, founder and CEO of NJFX, which owns and operates a 64,800 square foot carrier-neutral Tier 3 Cable Landing Station (CLS)  colocation facility and 58-acre data center campus in Wall, NJ, will be part of a panel hosted by the 7x24 Exchange, a not-for-profit organization that provides an educational forum focusing on challenges faced by mission-critical industry professionals.

The panel, entitled “Building Design and Construction: Operator Insight”, will provide firsthand insight from high-profile operators of North American infrastructure facilities, including Raul K. Martynek, CEO of edge data center provider DataBank and Chris Downie, CEO of hybrid IT solutions provider Flexential.

“I am looking forward to sharing our combined insight on what operators are looking for in building design and construction, including what worked, what didn’t and what we wish we had known,” comments NJFX's Santaliz. “I have known the participants on this panel for more than 20 years and it’s a pleasure to be collaborating and sharing where our industry is going and how this organization can help us achieve continued success in this journey."

NJFX notes its 64,800 square foot Tier 3 CLS colocation facility and 58-acre campus in Wall, NJ is uniquely supported by several route-independent carriers that offer direct access to multiple independent subsea cable systems interconnecting North America, Europe, South America and the Caribbean.

The “Building Design and Construction: Operator Insight” panel will take place at 2 pm ET on February 23rd as hosted by 7x24 Exchange. Hunter Newby, the visionary behind the designs, architectures and even phrases common to the industry today, like the Meet-Me-Room, will moderate the panel.

“Engineering and trade professionals rarely engage with the CEO who has the obligation to monetize the critical infrastructure they design and build,” commented Flexential's Downie. “This is an opportunity for insight on the evolving ecosystem and its needs for this infrastructure to perform.”
