COVID-19: Data Centre Sector

As infection rates of COVID-19 increase, the virus has obvious implications for business continuity across the entire economy and data centres are no exception.  The sector has a number of characteristics that should aid resilience such as high security with all movements to, from, and within facilities tracked; highly automated operations; a very strong focus on business continuity and risk management and low levels of human traffic.  This note explains why data centres matter and looks at the precautions operators are taking to ensure that sites continue to provide uninterrupted service to their customers.  It also outlines the key challenges we are facing that we cannot tackle alone.
