Has Iceland arrived as a data center destination? Today marked a coming-out party for the leading player in the nascent Iceland data center market, as Verne Global unveiled its new “modular colo” data center in Keflavik, along with three new tenants. Today’s event for analysts and media also served as a showcase for the use of modular designs to rapidly deploy data center space in remote locations with vast sources of renewable power. Working with modular specialist Colt, Verne Global was able to create a 500 square meter (5,400 square foot) data center in four months. The data center hall consists of 37 modules that were built in the UK and then shipped to Iceland, where they were assembled into a completed data center.
