A new pre-fab data center will soon be heading to Iceland where it will become the world's first to achieve zero carbon status. The IT company Colt will build the center's 37 components and then ship them off to Iceland where they will be assembled.
The ability for this data center to operate without carbon emissions has everything to do with its placement in Iceland. The center will be powered exclusively by geothermal and hydroelectric sources and cooling will be taken care of by using the cold Iceland air.
The 500 square meter facility will only take four months to complete. It will contain the servers of UK data hosting company Verne. The facility will be able to supply 100 MW of computer load at any time and the capacity will be expanded as demand grows.
