Data Centre Industry Update – 13th April 2022

Globally, we are seeing a huge increase in the level of data centre activity. This surge has been largely brought about by the increasing number of people working from home around the world and other measures introduced by Covid-19.  Now is the time for real change for companies and industries across the globe.

This seismic growth in online activity has seen jobs created in tech, engineering, construction, and more as a result. In our previous update, we discussed how Amazon Web Services (AWS) has committed to investing £1.8 billion into developing UK data centres and cloud-based infrastructures, CyrusOne data centres have joined the orchard initiative in Ireland as part of their sustainability strategy, and South Dublin County Council (SDCC) has voted against the construction of further data facilities in the region.

Here are this edition’s updates:

  • The global social video platform, TikTok, is set to open up a new €600 million data centre in Dublin in early 2023 with an initial capacity of 30MW and further increasing to 60MW.
  • A €22 million fine has been upheld by the Irish Court of Appeals against 3 brothers who had borrowed the money for the construction of a data facility in Wicklow in 2007.
  • Digital 9 has acquired Irish broadband provider Host Ireland for £60 million after a series of initial investments across the data centre space in recent months.
  • Google has requested that Irish regulators do not enforce a moratorium on the country’s data space citing it as impossible for future infrastructure investment.
  • Data services provider, Nasuni, has opened a new innovation centre in Cork, Ireland with the aim to create up to 55 new jobs over the next 3 years on the premises.
