"Debunking The Myths Around Data Centres"

Data centres have been at the heart of our homes, businesses and communities as the world made a dramatic shift online in 2020. These “digital factories” are the backbone of an Irish economy defying expectations thanks to robust computer service exports. Yet, misconceptions abound and flourish into tall tales that mask the important role data centres play in our everyday lives. 


Join us on 11 November for “Debunking the Myths Around Data Centres” where we’ll separate fact from fiction and break down the most common myths about global data centres including Ireland. We will welcome Garry Connolly, Host in Ireland founder; Maurice Mortell, Managing Director Ireland, Equinix; and Emma Fryer, Associate Director, techUK.  The session will be moderated by Michelle Wallace, Head of Operations, Host in Ireland. They’ll discuss data drivers enhancing our dependence on data centres, impacts to the Irish and global economy, the future of green electricity and more.
