Welcome to the Spring edition of Data Centre Management
From Brexit to Trump, whatever side of the political fence you sit on, there’s no doubt that we’re living in uncertain times on the cusp of potentially big changes.
Whatever transpires, there will be ramifications on all industries, but what will it all mean for data centres? Unfortunately, none of us has a crystal ball so the ability to predict is difficult, all we can do in the meantime is watch, wait and act responsibly when we need to.
Always a key factor, in this edition we’ve placed focus on security, an area that needs to be bolstered in order to protect data from the ever-present threats that we face on a daily basis. Whatever happens politically, what we can assume is that these dangers will increase; hopefully you will find the inspiration you need within these pages.
