In some cases, adopting cloud IoT platform may make more sense where required processes, communication costs and cloud costs meet sufficient total cost of ownership against deploying MDC. Additionally, in situations that an end-user organization already has a secure room or a modular data center solution where infrastructure can be housed and/or the amount of infrastructure involved may be too small to benefit from power/cooling advantages of being housed in an MDC, the organization may not see a need for an MDC. An MDC is nothing more than a smaller form of a modular data center, and a number of providers have entered the modular data center solutions space in the past. These modular data center solution providers came into the market with high expectations for growth and ROI only to find that high sales were not forthcoming due to limited use cases, so many exited the space.

Implementing prefabricated modular data centers results in well-understood benefits including speed of deployment, predictability, scalability, and lifecycle cost. The process of deploying them – from designing the data center, to preparing the site, to procuring the equipment, to installation – is quite different than that of a traditional data center. This paper presents practical considerations, guidance, and results that a data center manager should expect from such a deployment.

To win the colocation race you need to be faster, reliable, innovative and efficient –all while making smarter design choices that will ensure positive returns. Customers are demanding 100% uptime and always-on connectivity –be it small enterprises to large Internet Giants–and colocation providers need to meet these expectations. The growing adoption of prefabricated data centers allows just that. With the undisputed benefits of prefab modules and building components(like speed or quality),colocation providers can manage their business today, and deploy faster in the future. Chris Crosby, CEO for Compass Datacenters, is well-known for his expertise in the data center industry. From its founding in 2012, Compass’ data center solutions have used prefabricated components like exterior walls and power centers to deliver brandable, dedicated facilities for colocation providers. Prefabrication is the central element of the company’s “Kit of Parts” methodology that delivers customizable data center solutions from the core to the edge. By attending this webinar, colocation providers will: • understand the flexibility and value delivered via the use of prefabricated construction • Hear the common misperceptions regarding prefabricated modules and data center components • learn how prefabricated solutions can provide more revenue generation capability than competing alternatives • know what key things to consider when evaluating prefabricated data center design

The explosion in IT demand has intensified pressure on data center resources, making it difficult to respond to business needs, especially while budgets remain flat. As capacity demands become increasingly unpredictable, calculating the future needs of the data center becomes ever more difficult. The challenge is to build a data center that will be functional, highly efficient and cost-effective to operate over its 10-to-20-year lifespan. Facilities that succeed are focusing on optimization, flexibility and planning—infusing agility through a modular data center design.

As high-density IT equipment becomes the new normal, the amount of heat generated continues to grow substantially – as does the challenge of efficiently cooling data centers. Traditional perimeter and/or raised floor computer room air conditioning systems increasingly struggle to remove concentrated heat loads. In many small to mid-size data centers, implementing close-coupled cooling solutions can be a highly effective and efficient strategy for supplementing cooling capacity. Located in or near server racks, close-coupled air conditioning units focus cooling where it is needed most without lowering the temperature of the entire data center. In addition, these modular solutions make it easy to reconfigure cooling to handle new equipment or eliminate hot spots. As a result, using close-coupled portable, rack-mounted or row-based air conditioning units tailored to your specific data center needs can boost cooling efficiency and add valuable flexibility.

A new class of storage promises to revolutionize file data management with scalability, simplicity and cost benefits that together represent a step function improvement from traditional NAS. Cloudian HyperFile offers a new approach that addresses both the scalability and cost concerns. It is the first to combine traditional NAS features with a limitlessly scalable, fully modular storage environment that reduces CAPEX costs by 2 /3 while simplifying management and eliminating storage silos. At CAPEX costs down to ½ cent per GB/month, and with scalability and storage density that minimize management and data center space costs, Cloudian HyperFile offers economics that radically transform the landscape for enterprise file storage.

Energy costs are rising. Floor space is shrinking. And demand for IT capacity continues to grow. In this white paper, IBM reveals the next generation data center: scalable, modular data centers (SMDC). Brief case studies illustrate how specific SMDC solutions helped solve critical business issues, such as outdated infrastructure and scalability.

The modern data center has to keep pace with business growth, without outgrowing its physical space. It must meet customer demands, while containing operating costs. The solution lies in a scalable, modular data center-turnkey, high-density, energy-efficient and able to be deployed quickly. Discover how a number of industries have put this concept to work to provide better service and cut costs.

Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers, including flexibility, improved predictability, and faster speed of deployment. Cost , however, is sometimes stated as a barrier to deploying these designs. In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come at a capex premium . The analysis was completed and validated with Romonet’s Cloud-based Analytics Platform, a vendor-neutral industry resource.

Where’s the data center going? Industry analysts are pointing to modular computing. Designed for rapid deployment, energy efficiency and high-density computing, modular data centers deliver capacity at a lower cost than traditional construction methods. With significantly reduced construction time—from years to just a matter of months—and industry-standard components that are designed to meet immediate needs and slightly more, modular technology offers economies of scale that are particularly important in the new global economy. Learn more about modular computing in this whitepaper from Logicalis.
