Timmons' remarks will focus on the future of data center development for Midwest markets.
"Over the past few years Nebraska has earned a reputation as a world-class location for mission-critical facilities and I'm pleased to join other data center professionals at this premier event," said Timmons. "The State of Nebraska understands the needs of mission-critical facility providers, and they continue to be an innovative partner to the data center industry with events such as this one."
Prior to joining CyrusOne in October 2011, Timmons led Microsoft's global data center team as general manager of data center services. During his tenure he fundamentally changed the way that the company designed, developed, and operated its worldwide data center assets. Under Timmons' leadership, Microsoft opened four of the world's largest data centers, which were recognized for innovation and industry-leading cost performance. Timmons previously held several positions with the Operations team at Yahoo! including vice president of operations.
Nebraska Data Center Day highlights Greater Omaha's exceptional data center environment and will include a tour of the Peter Kiewit Institute, a premier technology learning and research facility and home to the Holland Computing Center.
