Our New Podcast, CyrusOne Connects, Launches Today!

January 30, 2023

There is much to say about our industry which is ever-changing and ever-evolving. The data center sector is central to how we live and work and yet, it is surprisingly misunderstood by many. All the while, the industry continues to grapple with unprecedented demand, supply chain challenges, rising inflation and the ongoing digital skills shortage, making it a critical point in time for our sector. 

This was the impetus to launching our new podcast, CyrusOne Connects, a brand-new podcast where we discuss the latest developments within the data center industry and beyond, uncovering insights from some of the most exciting innovators, companies and thought leaders and seeking answers to some of the industry’s biggest questions. Hosted by our very own Matt Pullen, EVP, Managing Director, Europe, we delve into the most important issues affecting our industry and our wider world and look to ‘connect the dots’ through collaboration and conversation.

The first series of ‘CyrusOne Connects’ consists of six episodes, touching on everything from the digital skills gap and sustainability to the next stage of the cloud in the enterprise and the future of the data center itself. We’re also dropping all six episodes at once, allowing listeners to delve into whatever topic is of most interest at their leisure, including:
