Introduction to Data Centre Review Live
The pandemic has served to highlight how dependent the world is on the data centre community. Data centres with critical national infrastructure (CNI) designation have been able to stay up and running efficiently and maintaining staffing levels. The UK government has set up the Data Infrastructure Resilience Team which has specific responsibility for ensuring the data centre industry gets what it needs. The business-critical nature of the industry has finally been recognised. Will this profile and level of support continue post-pandemic?
The Covid pandemic forced operators to manage with fewer on-site staff, thereby relying on more remote monitoring technologies. Assuming this will continue, what are the limitations of these systems? How can we take better advantage of them as we move into the ‘new normal’ working patterns?
