Environmental Responsibility

Carbon-Neutral Location

Acting responsibly towards the environment is part of our corporate culture, in today's world, when our planet needs help to survive.
We are proud to say that we operate data centers from Iceland, one of the most carbon-neutral locations in the world.

Situated high in the North Atlantic, Iceland occupies a unique position in the data center world.
With abundant geothermal and hydroelectric energy sources, this rugged island is a site of renewable and sustainable energy solutions.

Natural Cooling Systems

Iceland's geographic location provides plenty of water and wind resources used to generate energy, either from hydroelectric dams, or in superheated form, as steam in geothermal power plants.

The second one, wind, provides a steady supply of natural cooling systems and helps to keep temperatures down. Natural free cooling, provided in abundance by Kári (an Icelandic nickname for the wind), is used to control datacenter temperature and helps keep costs down. The average temperature at our datacenter location is 1.8°C in January and 10°C in July.

Operational Footprint

The temperate climate is ideal for data centers. Energy is clean and renewable. There is no pollution from energy production, and the carbon footprint is minimal.

With its location between Europe and the United States, Iceland is well-placed as a stepping stone between the two. Not only can our customers save on energy and improve their carbon footprint, but they can also minimize bandwidth usage and network latency.

Quality Bandwidth

Iceland's network is connected to the world by three submarine cables that work together as a single system. They are called: FarIce (named after the first two islands on the cable, Iceland and the Faroe Islands), DanIce (Denmark-Iceland), and Greenland Connect, which connects Iceland, Greenland, and Canada. Utilization of these cables is low and bandwidth is plentiful.
