Data Centres “The factory of the third utility”

Data Centres are massive caches of data that make our lives easier and can be our greatest threat and opportunity. Neither evil nor angelic, its just bits and bytes being repositioned billions of times a second without any emotion. Their settings can change our lives. Mystery surrounds the secure facilities and dark rooms that never sleep. They are instruments of a great possible future that can emerge, awaiting the current and next generation to mould technology into a promising future. We will discuss the importance of the “third utility” to every home and the role of digital evolution as it enters the next stages of growth and fuels new business and careers.
