Free Cooling in Iceland: A Closer Look at the Verne Global Data Center
September 19th, 2013 By: Colleen Miller
KEFLAVIK, ICELAND - Verne Global, which announced a cloud launch this week by client Datapipe and its client risk-modeling specialist RMS, is uniquely positioned from a geographical and business perspective. Verne is taking advantage of the geography of Iceland to operate a data center that is run on 100 percent renewable energy sources, and leverages the chilly climate in Iceland, located just below the Arctic Circle. The geography and geology of Iceland allows the local power companies to use natural resources such as hydro power and geothermal resources to produce electricity. Data Center Knowledge took a tour of this unique data center facility this week. Our photo feature gives insight into the facility, which is being deployed with a modular approach, and seeks to draw clients from both the United States and European countries.
