Element Critical to Discuss Tailored Solutions Engineering For Colocation at the Inaugural infra//STRUCTURE Summit

Data Center and Solutions Engineering Provider Building National Platform with Initial Data Centers in Silicon Valley and Northern Virginia

TORONTO — (infra//STRUCTURE) (June 13, 2018) – Element Critical, a leading provider of data center and IT infrastructure services backed by customer-centric solutions engineering expertise, today announced its sponsorship and participation at the inaugural infra//STRUCTURE Summit in Toronto, Canada, June 13-14, 2018.

infra//STRUCTURE is an exclusive industry summit hosted by Structure Research, an independent research and consulting firm focused on cloud and data centers. It brings together executives from across the Internet infrastructure ecosystem – cloud, managed hosting and data center – for high-value networking and direct discussions about the industry’s status and future directions. The vendor-neutral event provides cloud and data center executives throughout the industry with a wide range of educational, networking and business development opportunities.

Element Critical, an Executive Sponsor of the event, will brief customers and partners on its national expansion strategy and unique solutions engineering offerings, while participating in the “Colo Futures” panel discussion that will address trends and innovation in colocation. Ken Parent, CEO of Element Critical, will join executives from Cyxtera, DataBank, and TierPoint on the panel moderated by Jabez Tan, Research Director, Structure Research.

“Element Critical is a refreshing addition to the data center community, bringing a unique customer-first approach to solutions engineering,” said Jabez Tan. “We are thrilled to have them as part of the inaugural infra//STRUCTURE Summit, as they provide a unique perspective on the future of data center deployments.”

“Our approach to solutions engineering is like nothing else in the industry today,” said Ken Parent, CEO of Element Critical. “We are laser-focused on providing world-class data center solutions to businesses of all sizes. Element Critical knows colocation is not one-size-fits-all and we take that to heart by providing tailored solutions specifically designed for each customer’s unique requirements.”

With a record-breaking $20 billion in mergers and acquisitions closed in 2017, demand for outsourced IT services from small and midsize organizations is now outstripping supply of data center choices according Synergy Research. Consolidation is being driven by enterprises divesting their own infrastructure, and cloud services providers looking to rapidly scale into new geographies.

With data centers in Silicon Valley and Northern Virginia, Element Critical plans to acquire multiple properties each year in key primary and secondary markets domestically, with an eye toward international expansion.
