Data Centre Industry Update – 20th January
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 industry as a whole.
This seismic growth in online activity has created jobs in tech, engineering, construction and more as a result. The previous update included Amazon’s South Dublin heating scheme, Microsoft’s Danish sustainability plans and more.
Here are this edition’s updates:
