There is a looming skills shortage in the data centre industry, and it is getting worse by the fact that half of the existing staff will retire by 2025. To strengthen the talent pool for the next-generation data centres, we need to integrate sustainable data centre skills training into university education. We also need to foster a diverse talent pool including women, minorities and candidates that have a similar skillset to data centre professionals. Additionally, digital frontier technologies, such as robotics and artificial intelligence have an important role to play to automate tasks.
To address this issue, we collaborated with a group of master student from IT Universitet in Copenhagen to explore the green development in data centres.
