"THEREFORE, IT IS NOT 'PURE IDIOCY' TO BUILD DATA CENTERS"
DEBATE article in Nyteknik. "Establishment of data centers is criticized because of electricity consumption and because they do not provide many jobs. In fact, data centers have a positive climate effect - and lead to jobs, write researchers and representatives of the data center industry".
Swedish Datacenter Industry Association has together with Magnus Olofsson, Nordic Industry Research, written a response to the articles in different media that lately have been published criticizing data centers. The data center industry in Sweden would like to balance the debate a bit showing to the facts. Also show that the use is good and that Sweden can play a role in Europe. The national industry needs a strong home market so the local data center operators and equipment vendors can develop its products and services.
