Data Centre Industry Update – 25th 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 last update included key trend predictions for 2021, Lenovo’s revenue increases and more.

Here are this edition’s updates:
