Meet Me Room and Internet Exchange Innovation in the Data Center Industry – I Love Data Centers Podcast Episode 015

October 3, 2019

This week on the I Love Data Centers podcast: Meet Me Room and Internet Exchange Innovation in the Data Center Industry, I interview Hunter Newby.

If you’ve worked in the data center industry for more than a few years and haven’t heard name Hunter Newby, you simply haven’t been paying attention. Hunter is a 20 year data center industry veteran who innovated the concepts of the Meet Me Room (MMR) and Internet Exchange (IX). Our paths finally crossed last year during a data center conference in DC and a friendship quickly ensued. The conversation shared here covers how Hunter got started in the industry post college, the large impact his father has had on his approach to life, what the catalyst was for starting Telx in 1998 and what it was like boot strapping and growing the company through 2009.

I am certain you will enjoy listening to this interview as much as we enjoyed having the conversation together!
