I see many posts against allowing a variance for data centers to protect our data during weather related power emergencies. And I’m just wondering if the people posting here understand the significance of data centers in their lives. Businesses, private organizations, email, banks, home schooling, posting to this site, and on and on and on require data centers. Our world uses so much data and everyone who uses a computer, cloud storage, a smart phone, a car with a chip, etc. uses a data center. In this data hungry environment, we need to keep our data centers running at all costs.
