The CEO Leaderboard features selected topics each month.

Data centers, with their massive footprints and relatively few staff, are probably one of the safer bets in terms of work in the age of social distancing. 

They've also gained in importance—and they were already crucial—as companies flee office buildings and in-house servers to work from home, where the cloud is king. 

In the May 2020 issue of Columbus CEO, we ranked local data centers by square footage. 

Here is the May 2020 Leaderboard featuring data centers.

The CEO Leaderboard features selected topics each month. The July Leaderboards will feature Central Ohio law firms, IT consulting firms and commercial mortgage lenders. The deadline for inclusion in those surveys is May 18. If you want to be considered for an upcoming CEO Leaderboard, contact Rebecca Walters at rwalters@columbusceo.com.
