The start of a new year can be difficult. Forced to leave the warmth of our homes, we must venture forth once more to toil at our desks, counting the days until the next escape.
But, fear not, fellow worker bees - we have a post-Christmas treat to tie you over: A new issue of DCD Magazine, the longest-running magazine for the data center industry.
For the cover feature, Peter Judge dons his thickest raincoat and heads to Cornwall, UK, to tour the Goonhilly Earth Station. In a land rich with history, work is underway to build the future. Learn about Goonhilly's plans to grow with the rapidly expanding space industry, tapping into satellite communications, and building a thriving data center business all at the same time.
Plus, hear from the competition: Amazon has launched AWS Ground Station and hopes to dominate the market.
With fantastic photography of Goonhilly from Graham Gaunt, this is a feature that really makes us glad to be in print
