Open Days - Rugby SIte

Open Days - Rugby SIte

An opportunity to explore the potential of the proposed permanent site in Rugby, to look at what can be offered and what opportunities the site presents for your organisation. We are exploring the many ways our members can be involved from offering courses on site, to providing tours to enhance your own service offering, to provide exposure for great new products for the industry, to provide research and testing facilities in an environment that is indistinguishable from a fully live site

We will be offering membership of the NDCA to a select range of organisations that will allow you to work with us to add value for your own staff as well as clients, a great chance to be actively involved in this great project. It will also offer great discounts on the cost of using the facilities.

Come along and share our exciting view of the future for education and learning in the Data Centre sector and be a part of our story.
