Colt, a communications and IT services company, has launched a new method for building data centers and bringing them to customers.

The Colt Modular Data Centre approach includes building and testing the entire data center, including all power and cooling equipment, in a manufacturing facility and then transporting it to its destination in either in a Colt-managed data center site or a customer's site.

Colt says the process will allow it to deliver data center halls to customers in less than four months and the ability to build large data centers in 500 square meter (5,300 square feet) increments.

The data centers would have a target power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.21; PUE is a measure of a data center's energy efficiency, with a PUE of 1 being the best efficiency rating.

Colt's Modular Data Centre services and solutions will be handled by the newly created Colt Data Centre Services division.
