PHOTO GALLERY: DataCentres Ireland 2017 in Dublin

29 Nov 17

DataCentres Ireland 2017 took place last week in Dublin, celebrating its sixth birthday.

Experts and exhibitors both from within the country and around the world shared their insights and wares in the event focused on data centres and the future of the industry both locally and internationally.

“The size of the market in Ireland has grown dramatically through the growth of hyperscale data centres who recognise the advantages Ireland can offer their business,” says Hugh Robinson, exhibition director.

“However, Ireland is becoming one of the best connected countries with new international fibre connections hitting the country and not just in the Dublin area but now in Cork, Galway and in the North.”

Check out some photos below that were taken from the event.
