Zach Hilliard always loved cars and started his career as a diesel mechanic. Today he’s senior director of site reliability engineering for Cyxtera Technologies, a Texas-based provider of data centers around the globe. He sees the Uberization of data centers, where companies tap unused computing resources much like how Uber puts ride hailers into empty car seats. “I have 59 data centers around the world,” Hilliard said. “That data center portfolio is our main bread and butter. So, I’m always asking, how do I ensure that a client’s hybrid cloud strategy is cohesive in all my data centers as well?” In this segment recorded at .NEXT in Anaheim 2019, Cyxtera explains how innovations like hyperconverged infrastructure and enterprise cloud software are modernizing IT, making data centers more cohesive with new technologies.
