DataCenterThe UK becomes the second best location for data centres, while green concerns push Nordic states up the rankings.....

The UK has risen to second place in a table of the best locations to build a data centre in the world, while Nordic countries have also risen in the rankings.


The Data Centre Risk Index 2012 showed that companies are looking towards the Nordic countries and nations with a cool climate that have good networks and abundant renewable energy supplies

The Index, which helps companies identify where to build their data centres, ranked 30 countries according to a set of criteria, including energy costs, connectivity, likelihood of natural disasters, political stability, energy security and energy.

The US retained its status as the best place – the  lowest risk location – with a score of 100, but the UK moved up from fifth to second, owing to its high international bandwidth capacity and ease of doing business.
