Initially chosen for Iceland's cold climate and cheap and renewable energy, the Iceland data center has been substantially upgraded for Genesis Cloud to provide reliable, high-bandwidth accelerated cloud computing services. It is a tier 1 data center located on a tier 3 site. The data center is powered by geothermal energy, and resides in the capital of Iceland where excellent fiber connectivity makes it an ideal place for Genesis Cloud to have a data center.
As the data center is located on a tier 3 site with ISO 27001 certification, this ensures reliability and physical security of our infrastructure. Specifically this comes with the following security features: 24×7 on-site security guards, CCTV camera surveillance, two-factor authentification, anti-tailgating/anti-pass-back turnstile gate which permits only one person to pass through after authentication, vehicle access barriers and perimeter fencing as well as other undisclosed security measures.
