It’s no news that the future lies in technology, in business, industry, in every factor of our lives technology is more intertwined than ever.
But with more automation and a changing career market there are new opportunities, many involving easily transferable skills.
Every photo we take, post, save it all goes into the “cloud,” this ever growing data cloud. But where is this? Well, it’s actually an ever expanding series of server farms, and huge networks of under ocean cabling, in a multi billion dollar industry that’s growing every month to meet our insatiable demand for the instant lifestyle of the modern internet user.
Whilst there are firms like Elon Musks Space X satellite, “Starlink” and London based satellite operator “One-web”, which are pushing to take the cloud, well, into the clouds. For now, it’s still more vital than ever to maintain and keep growing these colossal data highways beneath the oceans, one of which, the Grace Hopper line connecting New York to The UK via Bude.
All these cables have to lead somewhere, and that’s where the boom in farming comes in, data farming. There are now 282 data centres in the UK, vast halls hosting an incomprehensible amount of data and this number is only going to go up. With companies beginning to look for localised hosting there are data farms within a half hour of every town in the UK, showing how the Tech industry truly knows no limit.
So whilst the future is in tech, it’s important to partner with the people who know where the wind is blowing. At IBP we understand that whilst Cyber, coding and security are booming, sectors like cloud computing are increasing their demand daily, and it’s time to find the talent before we hit a short fall. Because with demand only going up, we will need the infrastructure, either above the clouds, or below the oceans.
