Why Iceland?

Our Location – Iceland is the number one destination for high performance computing

To provide a TrueHPC service at industrial scale, Verne Global combine Iceland’s natural attributes with innovative design to offer customers world-class solutions for high performance computing and AI technologies.



Campus

Located close to the town of Keflavik, our Icelandic campus supports more than 60,000 m2 of ISO 27001 certified, technical space. All of this has been designed and engineered from the ground-up to specifically cater for HPC and intensive GPU infrastructures for AI and machine learning. Our campus is unique globally in providing HPC Cloud and two forms of HPC Colocation – enterprise ready and ultra high density - all from the same facility, and all delivered under our TrueHPC methodology.

Security

We know security is one of the most important considerations for any business in the 21st Century, which is why it is part of the Verne Global DNA. Located on a highly secure, former NATO base in Iceland, our campus benefits from the very latest security protocols, including widescale use of CCTV, eight separate challenge points, 24 hour surveillance, and routine physical patrols throughout the campus. Iceland itself plays an important role here too, as the country is acclaimed as one of the top three global locations for security.

Power

For those organisations utilising HPC, Iceland’s exceptional power-availability, robust network, and 100% renewable energy make it the ideal choice. Abundant, scalable power, is delivered by one of the world’s most modern grids, and only used to within 10% of its capacity. Combined with long-term fixed pricing and optimised cooling due to Iceland’s northern latitude location, Verne Global and Iceland are your perfect HPC power partners.

Connectivity

From Manhattan to Manchester, from Miami to Munich - access and connectivity are your priority. This is why Verne Global is based mid-way between the world’s two largest data markets, Europe and North America. From our carrier-neutral campus, customers have access to a truly exceptional choice of international carriers and access to all major cloud service providers. Now you can truly scale your connectivity at a global level.
