Data Centre Industry Update – 26th May 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 Eirgrid’s policy suggestions, Microsoft’s increased Irish transparency measures and more.
