COLT has opened new facilities in Copenhagen and Lisbon. The company now operates 16 data centres across 10 countries. SkandiaBank, one of the new customers at COLT’s Copenhagen centre, is using the facility as part of its test and development environment, while in Lisbon, COLT is already providing disaster recovery services to a global financial organisation. The new capacity brings the company’s total data centre footprint to 98,500m2 across Europe, with 1,200m2 in Copenhagen and 350m2 in Lisbon. Both centres have been built to comply with stringent security standards, while, to increase energy efficiency, they are using ‘free cooling’. This technique uses fresh air to feed the centre’s cooling system directly when outside temperatures are sufficiently low, so minimising the energy requirement of the system. The new facilities will allow the company to offer a range of managed services to local businesses, including managed email, storage and back-up and disaster recovery capabilities, as well as network and facilities services.
