This year has been tumultuous, to say the least. Sadly, we're still nowhere near the end of the Covid-19 crisis - but at least we're beginning to learn how to adapt.
In this issue of the DCD Magazine, we talk to data center operators about how they are changing in these unprecedented times, from prioritizing cleaning, to working in shifts, to a newfound appreciation of their staff.
We're also fighting back. Supercomputers are being drafted in the battle against the coronavirus, with hundreds of petaflops being used to help the search for treatments or a vaccine.
