DCX Data Centers is delighted to welcome Jay Hinnant as the new Facilities Operations Manager at our 12MW colocation campus in Goodyear, Arizona. Jay brings over 25 years of experience in the tech industry, with a deep-rooted understanding of the Arizona landscape and data center sectors. Known for his significant contributions to digital transformation and business growth, Jay is both a visionary in technology and a master in operational management. His role at DCX is to manage our state-of-the-art facilities and instill confidence in our clients, ensuring that DCX, purpose-built for high-performance computing, AI, machine learning, and mission-critical applications, operates at the pinnacle of innovation and efficiency.
A Reunion With Vision And Innovation
Jay’s decision to join DCX Data Center was fueled by the opportunity to work alongside our co-founders, George Slessman and Bill Slessman, once again. His previous tenure at IO Data Centers, a venture that George and Bill developed into a global industry leader, was a period he remembers fondly. Being part of the IO team was an enriching experience for Jay, where he witnessed firsthand the remarkable growth and success driven by visionary leadership.
Now, at DCX, Jay is eager and motivated by the opportunity to rejoin George and Bill’s team. His enthusiasm for working under their guidance once again is evident as an early member of the team. For Jay, it’s not just about fulfilling his role in operations; it’s about being an integral part of a team that embodies a culture of innovation and excellence.
Redefining Data Centers For AI And Lights-Out Colocation
At DCX, Jay sees a paradigm shift from traditional data centers to innovative, compact modules to power some of the most advanced technology we have ever seen. This transformation in the digital era drives the DCX commitment to leading-edge design and efficiency. In discussing lights-out colocation, Jay emphasized that often in the data center space it’s inexperienced human error that brings about the most challenges. Jay believes the lights-out colocation model represents a smarter way to manage data center facilities, offering clients reliability and peace of mind knowing that the DCX team on-site are experts in the field. Jay puts it best when he says, ‘The key to exceptional data center management lies in the hands of those who know the building and the infrastructure inside out. With us, you don’t need to leave home. Our team, deeply familiar with every nuance of our facility, takes care of your infrastructure the right way, allowing you to focus on what you do best.’
