DUBLIN – Host in Ireland, a strategic global initiative created to increase awareness of the benefits of hosting digital assets in Ireland, and winner of the Datacloud Europe 2016 award for Innovative Data Center Location, today announces the release of a new report, “Ireland’s Data Hosting Industry 2017.” The research study, created in collaboration with Bitpower and partly-funded by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), examines the opportunities and challenges associated with the digital asset hosting industry in Ireland.

The report also attempts to establish a baseline of the size, by category and sustainability, of Ireland’s data centre industry, addressing the scale of energy in use, requested and predicted over the period from 2017 to 2024. In 2016, the total energy use for all operational data centres in Ireland was estimated to be 1.40 TWh. Ireland’s total electricity use in 2016 was 27.6 TWh. By way of illustration, the world’s data centres used 416.2 TWh in 2016, of which Ireland’s data centre energy use represented 0.34 percent of the industry total. By analysing the different types of data centres, and documenting the energy efficiency and best practices in data centre design and operations, the report will act as a useful reference for policymakers when looking to provide context to the growing global requirement for data centres, as a “Connected Planet” becomes a reality.


“Data has a much higher economic value than the energy that powers it, and all stakeholders should recognise this when trying to evaluate the sustainability of the data centre industry in Ireland,” comments David McAuley, Founder and CEO, Bitpower, and Host in Ireland Advisory Council member. “As ‘Ireland’s Data Hosting Industry 2017’ report indicates, collaboration between data centre operators, state utilities and agencies, and renewable energy developers will be key to maintaining Ireland’s position as a Tier 1 global location for hosting and participating in the next wave of growth.”

About Host in Ireland
Host in Ireland, winner of the Datacloud Europe 2016 award for Innovative Data Center Location, is an industry-led marketing initiative that provides timely and accurate information about Ireland’s digital asset hosting ecosystem at all times including demonstrating why Ireland is more cost-effective, efficient, reliable, secure and accessible than most other regions across the EU. There’s a reason companies like Microsoft, Zendesk, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Adobe and beyond have sought to host their solutions in as well as to/from Ireland. Many of these reasons are immediately realized due to access to affordable power, redundant network and bandwidth capacity along with a variety of data center providers that offer an array of services sustained by the “5 Ps”: Policy, People, Pedigree, Pipes, and Power. On top of that is a very attractive business management structure, implemented by Ireland, which is keenly interested to bring new businesses into the market. Ireland supports this initiative through its pro-business approach, attractive corporate tax and fiscal structures, common law based legal system, continued investment in off-Island fiber cables to the U.S. and Europe, financial support for data centre energy efficiency, and access to a skilled native English-speaking workforce – ensuring data asset compliance for companies large and small.

HOUSTON, TEXAS – Through the opening of a new IDC (data center) in Nuremberg, Cloudbric will be extending its website security and WAF service to Germany and Central Europe in a strategic partnership with Trendhosting, a major player in the hosting sector in the region.

While the repercussions of recent cyberattacks are felt across European countries, many businesses either lack the time, personnel, or resources to effectively take actions to prevent cybersecurity incidents from occurring. In Germany, the digital association Bitkom reported that close to 70% of companies were subject to cybercrimes such as data theft over the past two years. This has propelled the need for an accessible, reliable, preventive security solution.


Among the current cybersecurity offerings in the market, WAFs offer the necessary protection that companies need to thwart common cyberattacks and protect against the theft of data. The partnership between Cloudbric and Trendhosting will connect German users to Cloudbric and to those in Central Europe, allowing for more convenient and affordable access to Cloudbric’s website security services, including its award-winning WAF for websites.

Cyber threats are a huge concern for online businesses, so organizations specifically look for security solutions with the ability and effectiveness to combat modern threats, and in Central Europe these solutions will be critical in combating cybercrime. Cloudbric’s advanced technology, more specifically its unique logic-based detection engine, generates one of the lowest false positives in the industry.

TJ Jung, VP of Product & Technology, said, “We share the same commitment with our partners in providing the highest quality of service, ensuring that website security is accessible to all. For this reason, in a region as large and as varied as Europe, we’ve opened new doors through partnerships to extend our WAF service to a greater consumer base. Companies are required to incorporate measures for ensuring information is handled in a confidential manner and protected from cyberattacks. We are glad that Cloudbric can be of great help.”

Mustafa Beciragic, CTO of Trendhosting, stated, “We like how Cloudbric’s firewall engine focuses on performance and commits to low false positive rates. This matched our main objective to deliver a high performance platform to our customers, especially during this time of rising security requirements.”

The IDC in Nuremberg marks the launch of Cloudbric’s fourth data center on the European continent. Cloudbric is anticipating to open additional IDCs across Europe and other regions within the next year.
