Modular and Containerized Data Center Designs

The Next Generation Data Center (NGDC) is a modular design concept that changes the dynamics of data center deployment. NGDC design concepts are a robust modular data center that can be deployed rapidly and at lower capital expense and operating cost than traditional data center projects. 

NGDC - be it ISO Containers, site built modular units, factory constructed modules, or micro containers - have distinct advantages over traditional brick and mortar data centers. 

With the ability to achieve PUE under 1.20, one of the most compelling reasons to deploy a modular data center may be the energy, and therefore cost savings, involved when deploying these energy efficient systems. This energy efficiency is part of the reason that modular data center designs can save up data center operators 50% in operational expenses over traditional data centers.

The scalability of modular data centers is an advantage over traditional data center space as it allows enterprises with multiple data centers to move capacity between the data centers as required. 

The deployment time of expanding a facility is much shorter when compared with a traditional data center. Traditional data centers can take years to design, build, and make operational. Modular data centers can be operational in just a few months.

Modular data centers are an excellent way to deploy data centers in remote or temporary locations.

ECS designs and deploys modular data centers that are heavy duty, highly secure technical rooms designed for outdoor deployment or constructed within an existing building. We have the expertise and capability to design data centers that are built into rugged steel freight containers, off site constructed or site built modules, and micro containers. Our modular data centers are always vendor agnostic with regards to both IT equipment and mechanical, electrical plant.

Please contact us to learn how our modular, vendor neutral approach to data center design may be the ideal solution to your mission critical telecom, IT, and network applications, where high performance of servers, switches, and other computing and communications platforms is demanded.
