Datacentre Awards 2008

Recognising Excellence in Facility Design & Operation. Are you and your team working on an innovative data centre project? Then why not enter the 2008 Datacentre Awards?

The Datacentre Leaders' Awards were launched in 2007 in order to recognise innovation and reward excellence in facility design and operations not only in the UK but across Europe.

The winners were announced at a gala dinner in Central London last December to an audience of over 500 people and included leading companies from the worlds of finance, broadcasting, hosting and consulting.

With current debates on energy consumption, data protection and business accountability bringing the industry to centre stage, The Datacentre Awards is an opportunity to showcase the professionalism and ingenuity of this important sector.

There are stories of real success and achievement that the industry needs to make public and this Awards programme is part of that. It is about individuals and teams, the people who make this industry what it is today, not just about products and technologies.

As well as offering peer recognition, the Awards are an excellent opportunity to demonstrate industry best practice.
