Perfect Place for a datacenter


What would be your idea of the most perfect conditions for a datacenter? I think where I am from (newfoundland) would be perfect for a data center for the following reasons.

- Cool weather, it never gets over 30 degrees celsius
- No natural disasters (no tornados, no hurricanes, no nothing)
- Low crime rate
- Cheap land

The only thing is there are big snowstorms in the winter (I mean lots of snow...we still got snow on the ground),and no fiber because the demand is not high at all.

Seriously though ...

I think data center should be located where:
1. The backbone is hot
2. The place is free or minimum natural disaster (specially earth quake, volcano and tornado)
3. Close to other technological building

Weather is one of the factors as well, but since a good data center should create its own weather system inside, the surrounding weather may not greatly affect the data center (unless it's under extreem hot/cold for a long period of time).

And those are the three main reasons why people choose the North-East US for datacenters

Newfoundland? I don't even know where that is, but I can't imagine that there are many fat reliable lines over there too which are required for a good datacenter

I'd say some place near New York/Jersey, or pretty much anywhere on the east coast.

Yeah, not many people do. Some people even accuse me of making up the name

It is a Island located in Canada. See attatched file.

Ideally you want to be located near a landing point for a trans-atlantic link, and have as little hostile weather as possible. Europe makes for good datacentres as the weather is pretty stable, and depending on where you are, there are good connections to the USA and to Asia.

I actually knew just about where Newfoundland was.
