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.
