Data Centre Risk Index 2013

Cover

��

The UK has been ranked as the lowest-risk European destination to locate a data centre. Its international internet bandwidth and ease of doing business helped maintain its place above all other locations surveyed in Europe.

��

The US maintains its place at the top of the index and is considered the lowest-risk location for building and operating a data centre in the world.��

��

But the Nordics, powered predominantly by hydroelectricity and with comparatively low energy unit costs, are becoming an increasingly attractive global data centre location.

��

Sweden is ranked as the third safest place worldwide to base a data centre, rising from eighth last year, while Iceland (seventh), Norway (eighth) and Finland (ninth) all feature in prominent positions.�� The only other European country in the DCRI���s global top 10 is Germany, which is ranked fourth.
