Pandemic Recovery and Choosing Your Data Center in Hawaii

The Pandemic shed new light on the global importance of connecting online, made possible largely by data centers, including data centers in Hawaii.

Of the more than 800 companies surveyed by the Hawaii Employers Council, 47.5% are undecided about if or when they’ll bring virtual employees back to work.

As remote workforces become the likelihood of the future, data centers in Hawaii will play an even more fundamental role in ensuring business continuity and a sustainable economy on the Islands.
