Will data centers survive to COVID-19 ?

As people are confined at home since 17/03/2020, homeworking tools such as Zoom or Teams have become essential to keep business running, and VOD platforms such as Youtube or Netflix have become the main source of entertainment for the people stuck at home. This has seen an increase of daily electricity and bandwidth usage of 10 to 15%.

But even with this increase, actors in the industry remain confident that this sudden increase in usage won’t create any trouble in the near future as this increased usage at home gets counterbalanced by the reduced activity of bigger industrial actors.
