Host in Scotland is an umbrella organisation to represent and promote the interests of the Scottish datacentre and subsea sector industry. Host in Scotland was created in 2017 by Scottish Futures Trust and is now run by Scottish Enterprise with ongoing funding from Scottish Government. Our aim is to promote new investment in the data centre and subsea space, be it from existing operators seeking to expand or new entrants to Scotland. Investment in this area is a key component of inclusive, green growth in Scotland. Find out more in the Scottish Government Green Data Centre Vision and Action plan.

This website provides information on the existing data centre market and several documents that Host in Scotland have commissioned in partnership with sector stakeholders to look at potential investment in subsea cables and data centres across multiple sites in Scotland. These detailed documents were commissioned to provide a wholly independent perspective on the topics and we would welcome feedback on their content and conclusions!

Please contact us for more detail or if you are looking for contacts within the Scottish market – we’ll be happy to help!
