Gil Santaliz, Founder and CEO of NJFX, is bringing his expertise to CAPRE’s Eighth Annual Greater New York Data Center & Cloud Infrastructure Summit set for April 18th in Times Square. The Summit features leading technology infrastructure executives, data center real estate experts and leaders in the hyperscale, colocation, edge and cloud areas.

Mr. Santaliz will participate on the panel entitled, “Cloud On-Ramps: Finding Data Centers with Connectivity to Major Cloud Providers”. Discussion will include the vitality of an on ramp, transparency in data center cloud applications, cloud consolidation and more.

Mr. Santaliz brings his thought leadership to the Summit on the heels of being recognized as part of Capacity Media’s Power 100, the first ever listing of 100 of the most influential men and women in the wholesale telecommunications industry. Capacity Media’s criteria for landing a spot on the coveted list included those known for being innovators, critical thinkers and agents of change who are continuously pushing the industry forward.

With his thought leadership on strengthening network resiliency, prioritizing network diversity and providing accessible connectivity with international subsea cable systems, Mr. Santaliz is on the forefront of a transparent solution for carriers and customers alike, in a neutral setting that is strategically positioned 64 feet above sea level in a Tier III, secure facility on the Jersey Shore.

As a preview to the expertise Mr. Santaliz will bring to the Summit, CAPRE Media conducted a Q&A that includes his thoughts on data center reiterations. “Data centers have gone through an evolution over last 15 years from proprietary, localized, close to enterprise, to a realization that shared data centers are economical, to now hyperscale options which don’t require any CapEx. You can just pay as you go,” states Mr. Santaliz.
