Jon Bernstein interviews Steven Norris, Chairman of Virtus Data Centres

Steven Norris, Chairman of Virtus, has been featured in the New Statesman, commenting on the challenges facing the data centre industry. Primarily Steven focuses on the need to recognise that although data centres consume large amounts of energy, they save the country a substantial amount which would be otherwise expended in inefficient offices. “It’s (similar to) a factory. Out there everybody is making their own motorcar in their own front drive and they are doing it incredibly inefficiently. Give it to us and we’ll make it on a modern production line and you’ll get your car better made, more securely made and at significantly lower energy cost.” - New Statesman
