Modular Data Centers on the Up and Up
Containerized data centers are becoming a mainstay of server manufacturers.
UK-based Cannon Technologies has expanded into the modular data center market with its T4 Modular Data Centers. The units can be deployed indoors or out and are configured to meet the needs of enterprise or military users, according to Data Center Knowledge.
Microsoft has also completed construction of its new modular data center in Quincy, Wash. The facility is the company's first using its PAC (Pre-Assembled Components) design approach, reports DatacenterDynamics. Microsoft completed construction of the data center in nine months and reduced its development costs by more than 50 percent.
