Inside Iceland's Newest Data Center, October 18, 2013 See inside Verne Global's new data center in Iceland and find out why cold-climate countries are becoming increasingly popular data center locations.
Verne Global's data center is located at a disused NATO command center in Keflavik and draws its electricity from a nearby geothermal power plant. What's more, the data center uses Iceland's cold air to keep temperatures down. Verne Global claims that it is the world's first "zero carbon" data center.
The data center uses a modular design to simplify reconfiguration, expansion and support. With "modules," data center elements can be quickly replaced or relocated.
