We’re delighted to be celebrating Data Centre Magazine’s 2nd birthday.
Over the last two years, the world’s data centre industry has grown at a remarkable pace. And, the consequent technological innovation, sustainable initiatives and market expansion have been nothing short of exceptional.
So, to celebrate the achievements of the last two years - both amongst the world’s pioneering companies, and in Data Centre Mag HQ - we wanted to use this opportunity to go through our highlights.
Below, you can find our team’s favourite content from the last two years, including some of our most stand-out interviews, trailblazers and magazine front covers.
