The industry is in a constant state of change, and, it’s pretty safe to say everyone knows that. OK — maybe not everyone, but, everyone who’s reading this editorial, at least. 

So, that means we have to change too. And, by “we,” I mean the Mission Critical staff. That’s why we’re launching a brand-new editorial webinar series just for you! Join us as we identify the industry’s latest trends, dissect the most pressing challenges, train the next generation of professionals, and work toward a greener future. 

The first event is titled “Electrification, decarbonization, and data centers — Oh, my!” and will take place on June 27 at 2 p.m. EST. 

Electrification is more than just a buzzword — it’s an environmental movement to achieve carbon neutrality. Replacing technologies that are powered by fossil fuels with technologies powered by renewable energy sources is a key ingredient in the decarbonization recipe. And, since data centers are one of the most energy-intensive types of buildings in the world — consuming between 10 and 50 times more energy per floor space than a typical building, according to the U.S. Department of Energy — electrifying the industry is a must.

Pat Drew, instructor and online tutor for CNet Training, will work with other industry experts to define electrification, forecast projected global average surface temperatures, identify ways data center owners/operators can electrify their facilities, and discuss the impacts of electrification on climate change.

Archived courses are available as well and cover a range of topics, including digital forensics and the dark web, cellular glass insulation and mission critical building design, staying cyber safe, and colocation selection and procurement best practices.
