AFCOM’s 35th-anniversary Data Center World Spring conference in Las Vegas in April had a strong turnout of data center industry pros from the U.S. and from around the world. If you missed Data Center Knowledge news coverage of the show, you can find a round-up here. We hope to see you at Data Center World Fall in September in National Harbor, Maryland.
Here’s a compilation of photos from the spring conference, courtesy of AFCOM, our sister company:
