The Datacentre Leaders' Awards were launched in 2007 by DatacenterDynamics Ltd. in order to acknowledge innovation and reward excellence in facility design and operations not only in the UK but across Europe. The Datacentre Leaders’ Awards are an opportunity to showcase the professionalism and ingenuity of this important sector. This Awards programme 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.
