Cloud computing is a $41 billion business that's expected to grow by more than 500% in the next decade
Where the cloud lives: SwedenThirty metres below Stockholm, in a former civil-defence nuclear shelter, Swedish ISP Bahnhof AB’s Pionen Data Centre is the perfect storage facility for sensitive info like WikiLeaks’ files (which are stored there). With its 40-cm-thick doors, Pionen has been compared to a Bond villain’s lair.
Where the cloud lives: TorontoCo-location centres like 151 Front St. West are third-party-owned spaces where a firm like Rogers can place its servers next to a competitor like Cogeco’s. In addition to sharing security and maintenance costs, companies link (or “peer”) with each other, which reduces connecting times for users.
Where the cloud lives: SwedenUnlike Google’s rumoured dozen-plus data centres, Facebook rents much of its capacity from third parties.
