The first three months of 2019 have been a whirlwind…
We are now approaching completion of our debut site and discovery centre at Lincoln Science & Innovation Park and emerge into spring with lots to report!
Throughout February, we held a series of insight days aimed at encouraging Engineering and Computer Science undergraduates to consider careers in the industry. Students were given a tour of the site, where we explained how we are endeavouring to make the industry more cool. Having also taken a group of students to Data Centre World, London, we are delighted to have recruited five University of Lincoln students who will be joining us after their exams when the site will be live.
London ExCel was something of a second home for us during March, when we were pleased to have exhibited alongside our distribution partner, Edmundson Electrical, at DCW. Two weeks later, we were back again, this time exhibiting at Legalex 2019 with our Cyber Security and Cloud partners – GBMS Tech and PeaSoup. Here, our CEO, Tim Chambers, gave a seminar on the subject of ‘The Dangers of Data in a Digital World’, drawing attention to both the environmental impact of digitisation, as well as raising questions about data sovereignty and weaknesses in the supply chain. These events have been a great opportunity to network with existing contacts, and meet some new ones. These include the winner of our champagne prize draw, a fundraising consultant from legal charity, LawWorks, one of Legalex’s charity partners for this year’s event.
We are delighted that the modular UPS solution Power Control developed for us is a finalist in the New Design/Build Data Centre Project of the Year category of this year’s DCS Awards. Please consider voting for them: https://dcsawards.com/vote. Closing date: 3 May 2019.
