Building tomorrow’s data centre

HomeBlogsBuilding tomorrow’s data centre

We have now launched www.tomorrowsdatacentre.com. Over the coming months, we’ll be tracking the deployment of the world’s first dual-sourced 100 per cent renewably powered data centre; being built in Verne Global’s new facility in Keflavik, Iceland. Our 500m2 modular data centre is being shipped from the UK today and will dock in Iceland in a week’s time.Follow this exciting project here as we race against the clock to have the data centre delivered and fully operational in less than 16 weeks – an industry feat when compared to traditional methods that can take up to two years. We’ll be bringing you the latest updates directly from Iceland – from the modules arriving in Keflavik, through to the lights being switched on and the first customers moving in. There’ll be regular blog posts, images and videos plus an opportunity to talk to project leaders from Colt and Verne as part of a LinkedIn chat.After the modules depart from Northern England, they’ll arrive in Iceland around a week later. We’ll then transport them to the site and assembly/installation will begin.Check back later this week for images of the data centre as it leaves the UK.We’ll be posting all the content on this site, but if you’d like to add us to your social media networks we’ve included the links below:Twitter: @Colt_TechnologyYouTube: ColtTechnologyLinkedIn: Colt Data Centre Services (stay tuned here for a LinkedIn chat, due to take place in late November)Finally, we’d like to leave you with some of the media coverage we’ve had for the project so far – we’ll continue to post additional links as they come through:The GuardianWall Street Journal – Tech EuropeCNNReuters
