Iceland Positioned to Become International Datacenter Hub

A recent study from BroadGroup Consulting revealed that Iceland is well positioned to become an international datacenter hub.

The study results show unique advantageous clean energy reserves, low power prices and solid infrastructure that make Iceland a highly attractive location for datacentres.

Bloomberg Businessweek had predicted Iceland could become a data-center hub in an article from March 2012.

Bjorgvin Sigurdsson, Executive Vice President for Marketing and Business Development at Landsvirkjun says, “Iceland’s power proposition is to provide economic advantages with the most competitive energy prices in Europe through fixed-rate, long term contracts. Our ample renewable and secure power resources offer differentiating opportunities for global sustainable business development.”

On the key issue of power, encompassing everything from costs to quality to regulation, Iceland scores higher than leading global datacenter locations such as the US, UK, Sweden, Singapore and Hong Kong.
