Digital Futures students take part in challenge day

Nov 25, 2021

One of the first events to kick off the new Digital Futures Programme was a Challenge Day with our 14- 16 year old students.

Their challenge was to determine an ideal location for a data centre and what components are needed to run a successful data centre.

Student teams had their own mentor for the day from each of our data centre partners: CNet TrainingVIRTUS Data CentresAmazon Web Services (AWS)CyrusOneLMG (, Yondr GroupCBRE Global Workplace Solutions (GWS) EMEA and Ark Data Centres.

This was a great introduction for students to start learning about data centres.

The winning team has won the opportunity to have a day out at one of the VIRTUS Data Centres!
