How to Cool Your Servers

Iceland

What does Iceland have? Cold weather and more green power than it can use.

What do servers need? Cooling and power.

Put the two together and you have a natural synergy. Site your data centre in Iceland and you can simultaneously cut cost while reducing your company’s carbon footprint. The only problem is how to connect to your servers, and Iceland has been busy laying fibre optic cables to connect to America and Europe.

Brilliant!

So Iceland has reinvented itself. Gone are the days of failed banks; welcome to Iceland as the natural home of your data.
