With over half a billion people, over 50 countries and dozens of languages Europe presents a major growth opportunity as well as some challenges for North American companies looking to expand in Europe. Finding a European data center is a challenge faced by many of our readers. Data Center Knowledge writer John Rath has created a white paper which looks at options and best practices for selecting the right European data center strategy.

  • Definition of colocation
  • The importance of coverage, connectivity and community in the data center selection process
