VIPA vists KAO Data
VIPA Digital visits the impressive KAO Data Center in Harlow. Many thanks to Paul Finch (COO) and Gerard Thibault (CTO) for showing us around.
Data centre IT equipment is often used for only a few years and then thrown away. The environmental impact of this is tough to mask! VIPA Digital is part of a CEDaCI working-group which aims to make data centres more sustainable through circular economy, encouraging reduction, recycling, refurbishment and reuse through improved design. This amazing mask has been made with recycled PCBs by Dan Sklan of iNetGroup to highlight this issue.
The VIPA team is delighted to welcome Stuart Hall who joins the company as Technical Director.
With extensive engineering experience having worked at Digital Realty, ARUP, Dell Computers and Future Facilities, Stuart strengthens the Technical group at VIPA.
