Default Popularity of Nordic data centers rising fast

Popularity of Nordic data centers rising fast, survey says
By Cyrus Farivar

According to a new industry survey, the United States remains the most popular country for data center hosting.

The new data from Cushman & Wakefield and Hurleypalmerflatt shows that while the United Kingdom and Germany hold the next two spots, Nordic countries are on the rise. Sweden and Finland take the eighth and ninth slots, respectively. Countries in the far northern hemisphere are attractive thanks to their naturally cool environments and access to substantial amounts of renewable energy and water.

That is in line with the recent efforts of some big players (yes, Google and Facebook), which have been building data centers like crazy as of late in Finland and Sweden, respectively. But the companies are also working on domestic data centers too, including one in western Georgia that keeps cool with toilet water and showers, and another in Oregon.

"What we are seeing, certainly in the data storage market, is the rise of the Nordics, which may in the future dilute the market share from the traditional centers in Europe," said Keith Inglis, partner in the EMEA Data Centre Advisory Group at Cushman & Wakefield, in a statement.

Sadly, Sealand, as a failed data haven, wasn’t an option on the survey.

Energy conservation I am sure is an expense driver that is worth considering when you think of the life of a data center. Cooling costs are big time for such energy users.

I suspect there is another driver going along with this.

You only have to look at recent news about domain confiscations, privacy invading through law, increasingly stiffer laws and penalities over copyright to see that people are abandoning anything to do with the US as far as host and domains go.

Megaupload is a fine one to use as an example. The owner of Megaupload is a gentleman of German descent named KimDotCom. That's his real name as he had it officially changed. KimDotCom has never been to the US and is a New Zealand native.

ICE (Imagration and Customs Enforcement) served warrant on a Virginia Hosting company where a servers that Megaupload were renting for hosting. As a result, they decided that KimDotCom was running a business based on infringement. Through international treaties, KimDotCom was arrested and his property as well as money was confiscated.

Where it gets interesting in all this, is that the law wasn't followed and in several cases, either through neglect or through purposeful manipulation, done improperly.

For one thing, a notice has to be served the owner. It can not be served to a company. But KimDotCom got nothing of the sort.

New Zealand has two methods of for court cases, depending on the residence of the individual. For a foriegn individual, a raid may confiscate all property and money to prevent someone from leaving the country prior to court. For those native, no such confiscation may be done until after court. The police forces in charge of the raid, served the first by mistake. After confiscation of all property and money, they tried to go back to court to get the right paperwork. The judge said it was illegal and the chances are KimDotCom will never go to court because of it.

This does not help KimDotCom in the least as the US has killed the business that Megaupload had. It is dead and won't be revived. KimDotCom has lost at the least millions of dollars, possibly more.

All because he had US servers. Had his servers been outside the US along with the domain name, no such actions could have been taken the way they were.

There are other cases, where the US has confiscated domain names, because websites were accused of copyright infringement. It's been a legal quagmire with the US legal forces playing games. You can't just seize property in the US unless it is to preserve evidence for court. The legal side has 1 year to either return the property or to file charges. Neither has been done with the exceptions of RojoDirect which took the US government to court as their operations had already withstood two Spainish courts, both determining the site was legal prior to the US actions.

In this is the main reasons why internet business is leaving the US in droves.
