Guiding us with their expertise and experience, we have some of the leading experts in the field of data centers, infrastructure & IT services to support us. 

We warmly welcome John Booth and John Laban to our team of Advisors.

Mr Laban is an Open Source Technology Reset Catalyst for the Open Compute Project Foundation. His mission is to create awareness of vanity free open source ICT hardware and its sustainability benefits in a decarbonised Circular Economy. John is also supporting the open source hardware collaborative commons worldwide with advice and education.

With these impressive experiences and both being well-know in the data center world scene, they will surely contribute greatly to our advisory board and our mission to drive the sustainable transformation of the digital infrastructure.
