Data centers in Europe are expanding beyond FLAP-D
In recent years, there has been a trend of data centers moving out of FLAP-D cities (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris and Dublin) and into smaller, more remote locations. This is primarily due to the high costs associated with operating a data center in these major cities, as well as the increasing demand for more energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly data center operations.
By moving to smaller, less densely populated areas, data center operators are able to take advantage of lower real estate costs, access to renewable energy sources, and the ability to build larger, more advanced facilities. This trend is expected to continue as more and more businesses seek to reduce their carbon footprint and minimize their operating expenses.
