Modular data center design
Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, at 11 a.m. PT /1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET
1 AIA CES accredited LU available for attendees

The data center market has expanded dramatically in the past few years, and it doesn’t show signs of slowing down. Many clients and building owners are requesting modular data centers, which can be placed anywhere data capacity is needed. Modular data centers can help cash-strapped building owners add a new data center (or more capacity) to their site, and can assist facilities with unplanned outages, such as disruptions due to storms. Owners look to modular data centers to accelerate the “floor ready” date as compared to a traditional brick and mortar. Modular data centers are not for everyone, however—this webcast will explore whether it’s appropriate for your next project.

Additional points that will be discussed:

  • Shorter time to commissioning
  • Ability to start small, increase size in phases
  • Lower capital and operating expenditure (CAPEX, OPEX) costs
  • Greater efficiency, lower expenses for power and cooling
  • Variable density via flexible power configurations
  • Efficient use of available real estate.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn the differences between the various types of modular data centers.
  • Know about the benefits—and negative aspects—of specifying modular data centers.
  • Understand the cooling requirements and issues associated with modular data centers, including compliance with ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).
  • Understand the unique power/electrical requirements and issues associated with modular data centers.
