Data Centre Industry Update – 2nd September
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 technology, engineering, construction and more as a result. Our previous update discussed the opening of Zoom’s new South Asian facility, Amazon’s Galway wind farm and more.
* Please note, as of today’s edition, the Data Centre Industry Update will take place fortnightly.
Here are this week’s updates:
Update – 2nd September 2020
- Edge startup EdgeMicro is launching five new micro data centres across the US, with spending by cloud providers including AWS, Google and Microsoft skyrocketing, and billions injected by private equity firms into the edge.
- Dell has reported a successful quarterly revenue increase of 18% to $3.2 billion. This has been associated with increased demand for computers by employees worldwide who have been or are continuing to work from home.
- Datapod is to deliver air-shippable data centres for the Australian Military. The AU$20 million contract, delivering four modular facilities over two years, will allow the military to be more agile and responsive to potential threats.
- Google is rumoured to be in the process of buying a plot for its third Taiwan-located data centre.
- Silicon Valley’s data market, south of San Francisco, has experienced accelerated growth amid the AI Boom. Home to leading tech players like Apple, Google and Intel, more data-heavy businesses have shown increased interest.
