Luxembourg, the best location for data centers
Luxembourg's data center advantages
Low cost high quality electrical supply
Low price, green and stable electricity are some of the key factors in the success of the Luxembourg data center ecosystem.
Luxembourg, lowest energy price in Western Europe
The cost of electrical energy is one of the most important factors in global operational costs. Over the last few years, Luxembourg has invested heavily in order to improve the energy efficiency of its data centers. The electrical energy price for industrial customers is very low in Luxembourg.
Luxembourg is connected to the European grid via fully independent and redundant circuits, each of them capable of assuming the entire electricity needs of the whole country.
Reliable electricity supply
Luxembourg is the European Union’s number 1 in a comparison indicating the average annual power outage time for clients connected to the power grid. Continuous investment has been made in order to ensure Luxembourg has a modern infrastructure with a focus on network stability, resulting in virtually no service interruptions for many years.
Low latency ICT hub
Luxembourg's ideal geographical situation has allowed the country to build an international fiber network, becoming an ultra-low latency hub in Europe, with average round-trip times of around 5 milliseconds to the other major European Internet hubs such as London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris.
Luxembourg also has direct links with major neighboring Internet exchanges such as AMS-IX, LINX, France-IX and DE-CIX.
The Uptime Institute, an organization whose aim is to improve the efficiency and reliability of data centers around the world, has created a 4 category classification system, from Tier I to Tier IV (Tier IV being the highest level of reliability).
According to your planned activity and your budget, you can choose the data center with the right classification for you. In Luxembourg, you will find data centers across all Tier certifications, allowing you to make the best decision for your business.
