Last week, May 24-25, one of Asia’s largest Data Center and Cloud events took place in Hong Kong. Stockholm Data Park was there.
Data Center World Hong Kong is one of the biggest events in Asia. Stockholm Data Parks, represented by Erik Rylander was there as speaker giving a presentation on “The next level of data center cost efficiency and sustainability”. Erik’s presentation attracted lots of interest and hopefully another step has now been taken towards the first major data center establishment by an Asian player in Stockholm.

Mr. Rylander has a long career within Fortum in different managerial positions. In recent years he has played a leading role in the development and deployment of Fortum’s business model that allow data centers to turn costs for cooling into revenue from recovered heat. Boosted by the recent Swedish data center electricity tax cut, Mr. Rylander and his team have set up a scheme that integrates data centers in the urban energy system, resulting in unparalleled sustainability and cost efficiency.

Interesting article by Richard Milne, Special Report FT 1000: Europe’s fast growing Countries. Intervju with Jacob de Geer that wants the Swedish capital to be made more alluring to business:
The attack in Stockholm on Friday was a sad reminder that our open societies are vulnerable to assaults from intolerant forces trying to destabilize our countries.
Like other European cities which have been attacked over the last years, our resolve to remain who we are is only strengthened by acts of terrorism. Stockholm is one of the most open and tolerant cities in the world, and its openness and diversity are at the core of what makes Stockholm a vibrant, dynamic and innovative capital.
The manifestation in Stockholm during Sunday to honor and mourn the victims of the attack was a clear demonstration of our commitment to openness, respect of one another and our resolve to meet hate with love.
Our thoughts are with the victims and their families and friends.
