Oliver Menzel, CEO of maincubes, said,
“As concerns over the data center’s impact on global climate change become more acute, it becomes increasingly clear that the future of IT will center on sustainability and responsible digitization as a core pillar. Now, we’re building that sustainable future with the launch of this collaboration. As a result, the market will benefit from greater availability and accessibility to open solutions, along with accelerated times to market with integrated, ready-to-deploy and optimized solutions, all with the sustainability both our customers and the planet deserve.”
