Data center connectivity
Connectivity is a critical element to a data center and it is all about speed and route diversity. Green Mountain’s facilities are carrier-neutral data centers, offering multiple fiber providers. Consequently, our clients can get the fastest, lowest traffic and most direct route possible.
Is Norway too far away?
A common misperception is that Norway is on the far outskirts of Europe. That is to say, high latency times and limited route options. If you rewind 10 years, that was probably true. However, due to recent investments in subsea fiber infrastructure this is no longer the case. Several new projects have recently been completed and additional projects are under construction. For instance, the NO-UK cable was completed in in 2021. It now links our SVG1-Rennesøy site directly with Newcastle in the UK.

Low latency to Europe
When it comes to latency, we can actually reach 54% of businesses in Europe within 20 ms roundtrip. And almost 100% within 50ms. As an example, London is less than 12 ms away from our Rennesøy facility. In other words, our facilities in Norway are not only fit for HPC and backup/recovery workloads. We can also can support typical client workloads like Content Delivery Network, Cloud based application use and IoT Data Aggregation to name a few. Looking at the map, Norway has a very strategic location in terms of reaching both continental Europe, the UK and the US. More and more clients realize that their data does not have to be in one of the traditional FLAP-D hubs. Instead, they can place it in locations where they also get cost and sustainability benefits without compromising on connectivity.
