Green Data Centres

Data Centres are critical to any modern business and almost every company has them. But what is a Data Centre? Simply put, it is a space that houses very specialized electronic hardware. The space itself is equally specialized, with sophisticated electrical, mechanical, and monitoring systems. The ultimate goal, is to have zero failures, and zero down time.
