Good work. We landed a Microsoft server farm here that was a huge investment and word has it that Google has also decided to place a server farm here.

It seems that reliable electric power and reasonable real estate cost is a big consideration when you're going to site a server farm.

They're talking about Norway. A.net servers were in Sweden.

It's not really servers that the story is about... is it ?


" Software giant Microsoft said Tuesday it would establish its base for enterprise search technology in Norway "
