“This is a really exciting time for Data Centre Review. Since taking the reins 6 months ago the magazine has gone from strength to strength and the newly added awards categories are testament to its growing success. We’ve recently increased distribution to three times yearly with the view to boost this further, we have a major new presence on social media and the magazine itself has just undergone a major revamp,” commented Claire Fletcher, Executive Editor, Data Centre Review.

“The association with the ER Excellence Awards can only help push the Data Centre Review brand to new heights and as part of the judging panel I am particularly excited to see what the data centre industry has to offer.”
