What's involved in moving a 5,000 square foot data center nearly 1,000 miles across the ocean? Colt loaded 13 factory-built data center modules onto a container ship, which sailed them from northern England to Reykjavik, Iceland for delivery to its customer, Verne Global. It was a process that required attention to detail and careful planning of the logistics. This video provides an overview of the process, with commentary from Colt's Andrew Robertson and Andrew Britland, along with Tate Cantrell and Helgi Helgason of Verne Global. This video runs about 4 minutes.
