Interview mit Dr. Béla Waldhauser, Telehouse Deutschland (engl.)
What is going on in the industry, and what the prognosis is for the future? – The data center industry is a remarkably youthful industry, which has seen enormous growth and upheaval in its mere 20-year history.

And we’re not at the end of the process yet.
So, where is the industry at right now, and where is it going? What are the consequences for smaller operators and how can they adapt to the changing data center landscape of the coming years?
