Frequently Asked Questions

Norway offers sustainable data centers powered by renewable energy, Which a focus on natural cooling, colocation, and reuse of waste heat, among other sustainability measures.

We currently have 40 data centers listed, from 15 markets in Norway.

In the past few years, the need for data centers has rapidly increased in the world. Because of changing work habits during the pandemic and the growth of cloud-based technologies. That means more buildings, more land, more cooling systems, and more electricity to support the physical infrastructure need that runs 24/7.

The reason why data centers have a tendency to be loud is simple: The equipment inside them makes a lot of noise when it operates. space can create noise levels of up to 96 db(A).
