With an ever-increasing focus on energy use, efficiency and sustainability, the Australian data centre market is thriving and continuing to evolve.

Over the next two weeks iTnews will be looking at key trends such as new advancements in power and cooling technology, server and processor architecture, networks, storage, the co-location industry, cloud, as well as developments in modularisation and containerisation.
