Recognizing the industry’s heroic efforts during this pivotal year

As the DCD>Awards enter its 15th year, there has never been a more important time for us to stop and reflect on the extraordinary challenges and triumphs this industry has faced over the last year.

To honor the efforts & innovations of our colleagues from around the world, this year’s DCD>Awards will celebrate the individuals, teams, and projects that went above-and-beyond during these past 12 months. With new categories for emerging regions, the DCD>Awards remains the ultimate showcase for data center excellence across the globe, and we look forward to celebrating the winners during our ceremony on 8 December 2021.

Should the circumstances allow, we intend to run the ceremony in-person. We look forward to celebrating with you! Registration for in-person tickets will open once we have more visibility.
