Colt modular datacentre
Above: a Colt modular datacentre, part of London 3, a much larger legacy Colt site in Welwyn Garden City, UK. The modules are stacked on top of one another inside Colt's 100,000-square-foot warehouse (pictured).
Colt operates 19 datacentres across Europe providing colocation and managed infrastructure services to a variety of businesses. With around over 1,000 racks, and with an aggregate power drawdown of 33MVA, London 3 is one of Colt's most important datacentres. It represents six percent of the co-location provider's datacentre capacity in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. For this reason, Colt has chosen the site as a flagship for its new modular hall design for datacentres.
The manufacture and testing of the modules is done by Colt, before being shipped to the customer site.
