One of the exciting things about working with a technology company is that you can never be 100% sure that what you are doing in terms of development will allow you to deal with all the changes occurring across the industry.
It could become easy to be very reactive – to adjust as the changes happen – which would of course be a dangerous place for any company at the cutting edge of an industry to find itself – by its nature they would no longer be cutting edge.
I’m really pleased to announce the launch of Project32, a wide-reaching UKFast initiative that aims to seek out and form alliances with those in the UK who are developing new systems for server monitoring and protection. The project also researches ways to get as much out of the power available to the industry rather than looking at suggestions such as building new power stations and covers topics like Internet security and connectivity.
Lawrence Jones has been very eager to find ways to offer customers more energy-efficient options without losing any performance and the R&D capital has already developed eco servers that are making this a reality.
I hope that over the coming months there will be a lot more that I can report here that places the UK at the forefront of Internet development.
