If you missed it and want to read more about the launch, you can do so here and you can follow the data centre team’s latest blogs here.
Last week, we caught up with John Dwyer by phone. John is the international data centre manager and we wanted to chat to him once the dust had settled from the grand opening and the Data Centre had been up and running for a few months. We asked him how he felt things were progressing, how the local community had taken to having a Data Centre in its midst, and to give a little insight into what makes this Data Centre special.
In these two clips (just a few minutes long!) you can hear him talk about why Microsoft decided to make the investment and the cutting-edge environmental features which differentiate the Dublin facility from other data centres (and which have led the European Commission’s Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign to declare it a best practice facility.) The EC submission, which can be reviewed here.
Why did Microsoft build this data centre (and why in Ireland?)
What makes this data centre an EC environmental sustainability best practice?
Over in our Growth and SMEs section, we’ve got a couple of clips of John talking about the impact a Data Centre can have on European start-ups. Click here to view.
