All About Data Centres

CNet Training is helping to inspire and educate the next generation of data centre professionals. We have compiled a selection of industry created videos to help educate people about what a data centre is, their impact on everyone and hopefully inspire the next generation to consider one of the many career opportunities within the Digital Infrastructure Industry.

See videos below on the inside workings of a data centre, a data centre that looks like something out of a James Bond movie, the high security required in a data centre as well as a day in the life video of someone who works in the industry.
