Renatus Comment: Irish service providers to data centres and mission-critical infrastructure operators, continue to be in high demand, with this deal following the recent acquisition of RWL Advanced Solutions by Genuine Cable Group. As mentioned in relation to the PowerPoint Engineering deal above, there were 82 data centres in operation in the country as of June this year, with the majority owned by some of the world’s largest multinationals such as Amazon, Google and Facebook. The service provided by these Irish firms is truly world-leading and it is no accident that some of the world’s largest technology companies entrust many of their critical assets to Irish hands.
