Data Centre Industry Update – 11th November
Globally, we are seeing a surge in data centre activity. This surge is largely brought about by remote working as a result of COVID-19. This is a turning point for work-management structures and the data centre industry as a whole.
This seismic growth in online activity has created jobs in tech, engineering, construction and more as a result. Our previous update included Google’s plot acquisition in the UK, Microsoft’s Austria location and revenue dips for Intel.
Here are this edition’s updates:
