Tempted to look overseas for inexpensive colocation solutions and data center solutions? Be sure to check out ThinkDigit’s report on the riskiest data center locations in the world. Not surprisingly, especially in light of this summer’s power outages, India is identified as the riskiest place in the world for a data center. The old adage is true: You get what you pay for. The report also identifies the least risky places:
The US retains the top position in the ranking as the lowest risk location to set up a data centre and UK ranks second as these data centers have the good bandwidth, perform well in other tiers such as tier 1 risk categories, and have the largest percentage of their population completing tertiary education.
