The Latest on Iceland’s Viability for Data Centers
Iceland’s future as a location for data centers is a topic I’ve addressed before, just after their volcanic disaster. At that time it was concerning because the threat of natural disaster looked like it might eclipse the ways Iceland is appealing as a data center hotspot. As it turns out though, they are recovering completely and getting a lot of attention in the industry.
This article from Earth2tech covers the latest on Iceland’s data center prospects – apparently the attitude towards it has reached the point that it’s being called a gold rush mentality. Here at Silverback we’ve been interested in Icelandic facilities because of the amazingly clean energy available there. They offer completely green energy at extremely reasonable prices.
Another important factor in choosing Iceland is its location between the US and Europe – companies operating on both continents can enjoy a convenient and affordable location between the two. All in all it looks like the country is recovering admirably from its volcanic disaster and making important steps towards overcoming its economic crisis… so now really is a great time to get in on space there.
