The green pioneer in cloud computing

Zero Carbon: we operate with 100% renewable power* from the Alps. We do not offset carbon emission: we are zero carbon emission.

Sustainable: we reuse existing factory halls instead of building everything new & use recycled hardware. 

Safe: our servers are all located in the Alps of Switzerland - protected by the fierce Swiss privacy laws.

Modern: we have a modern and alternative design for a datacenter.

(*99.9% hydro power, 0.1 % solar power.)


Open Source + Open Infrastructure.

We are seriously Open Source.

Everything we use, create and encourage is Free and Open Source Software. You find our source code online and we even document our whole data center setup publicly. 

Our Open Infrastructure Project

Have you ever wanted a feature in a software, a product or an infrastructure and got frustrated that your provider would just not support it? We've certainly been there. And that is why we decided to open up our infrastructure. 

Our goal is to let you, our users, fully profit from our transparent improvement and growth. You can access our processes, architecture, technologies, and more on our open infrastructure page

While Data Center Light fully supports IPv4, we strongly believe the future is with IPv6. Explore our IPv6 initiatives:

IPv6onlyhosting - Super affordable IPv6 VM

IPv6 Shop - IPv6 VM, IPv6 VPN, IPv6 Box, IPv6 goodies

IPv6 Blog - discover and share everything IPv6 with the world 



Data Center Light uses SSDs for the Operating System. You also have the option to attach HDD space for bigger needs (100GB+).

We believe in giving back to the FOSS community.

Data Center Light is the child of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) movement. We grew up with it, live by it, and believe in it. The more we work on our datacenter, the more we contribute back to the FOSS community. 

One way of us giving back to the FOSS community is our famous biannual hackathon, Hack4Glarus - where we invite hackers with brilliant ideas to come to Data Center Light, and support them to freely and openly exchange, develop and implement great ideas.

In our data center we are supporting Alpine Linux by running its build server for the community.
