Go Green, be Efficient

Iceland's climate provides plenty of both water and wind. Water is used to generate energy, from either hydroelectric dams or in super-heated form as steam in geothermal power plants. Wind provides a steady supply of natural cooling and helps to keep temperatures down. This limits the power needed to cool the data center servers. Iceland has a robust and modern power infrastructure. All power production is renewable, being either hydroelectric or geothermal. Zero emissions and carbon free! Advania OpenCloud's console has a pre-built set of APIs that will enable you to move easily from not-at-all-green over to environmentally friendly cloud hosting.

Safeguard privacy and preserve personal data 

Companies headquartered in the EU are required under Directive 95/46/EU to protect sensitive customer data. The US Patriot Act and government surveillance programs suggests that it may be difficult to keep your sensitive customer data safe and secure when hosted with a provider in a major-power state. The recent verdict of the European Court of Justice where ´Safe Harbor´was found to be invalid highlights the importance of considering where data and IT systems are hosted.

Iceland is an European Economic Area (EEA) state which fully complies with EU regulations. Hosting your data and IT systems in Advania's Icelandic state of the art data centers is an attractive option when choosing a provider for data storage, backup, archiving and disaster recovery needs. 

"25% of businesses are moving data outside of the U.S. as a result of privacy scandals; 96% consider security and 82% consider data privacy their top concerns."
