Executive Summary

Stockholm continues to attract data center colocation providers

Stockholm is considered as the major investment center for data centers in Sweden, which attracts high investment from major colocation providers such as Equinix and Interxion, etc. The objective is to become entirely fossil fuel free by 2040. Also, the city also offers ready-to-built land with other offerings such as cooling services and heat recovery plants, dark fiber at premises, tailor-made renewable electricity contracts, and heat recovery plants. The city accounts for over 70% of the revenue generated by data centers in Sweden.

The adoption of automated DCIM solutions will grow in near future as they reduce human intervention to handle critical data center tasks. Automation helps large data centers to reduce their OPEX by more than 25%. Intelligent security systems such as HD cameras, security badge control systems, biometric access are gaining increased traction, thereby reducing the use of card-based access control in data centers across Sweden.
