Data Centre Industry Update – 23rd June 2021

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. Our previous update discussed Cyrus One’s electricity commitments, Hyperco’s new Finnish facility and more.

Here are this edition’s updates:
