Data Centre Industry Update – 28th April 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. Last time, we discussed a Cork start-up’s green data centre technology, ServiceNow’s Dublin jobs announcement and more.
Here are this edition’s updates:
