The Debate about Modular Data Centers - SmartMod

Thu, 12 Nov 2015

To build or not to build, that is the question.

Data Centers today are being deployed far and wide trying to catch up with the needs of the business world and the increasing reliance on mobile and cloud computing. The internet of everything and connectivity in the palm of your hand is changing the landscape of the network environment almost like shifting sands in the desert.

And leading the charge in the boardrooms are two things, OPEX and CAPEX, when to spend money and where. Two of the biggest reasons typically listed as the problem within data centers are capital and speed of deployment. The traditional brick and mortar data center takes a lot of money and time to build. If you are not even considering modular components for expansion and new builds, you run the risk of putting yourself at significant disadvantage in today’s globally competitive market.

Let’s reflect here for a minute, what is one of the biggest changes in the Data Center? Would you agree that both Blade server technology and virtualization have had an enormous impact on Data Center in the last 5 or so years? I do. I talk to clients everyday and hear issues about over cooling, skids of servers slated to be destroyed and even reclaiming of floor space. Now don’t you think companies dealing with these issues wish that they had used a modular, scalable solution to avoid the excess costs they are now dealing with?

Who knows what will happen in the next 5 to 10 years the way technology is going? All I know is that agility, flexibility, scalability, sustainability and most of all affordability will always be hot top issue when it comes to the Data Centers and their operation.

Here are the top 5 reasons I believe will drive Modular Data Center Adoption:

  1. Reduction of power consumption when compared to conventional Data Center Design by up to 28%.


  1. Reduction of time and cost of deployment within months.


  1. Sustainable model which ensures continuity of business processes.


  1. Increased physical security due to the light out remote access model.


  1. Benefits in efficiency due to the self-contained nature of the ecosystem.
