        Prefabricated Power and Cooling Modules for Data Centers

        Standardized, pre-assembled and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules are at least 60% faster to deploy, and provide a first cost savings of 13% or more compared to traditional data center power and cooling infrastructure. Facility modules, also referred to in the data center industry as containerized power and cooling plants, allow data center designers to shift their thinking from a customized “construction” mentality to a standardized “site integration” mentality. This white paper compares the cost of both scenarios, presents the advantages and disadvantages of each, and identifies which environments can best leverage the facility module approach.

        TCO Analysis of a Traditional Data Center vs. a Scalable, Prefabricated Data Center

        Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a “total cost of ownership” (TCO) savings of 30% compared to traditional, built-out data center power and cooling infrastructure. Avoiding overbuilt capacity and scaling the design over time contributes to a significant percentage of the overall savings. This white paper provides a quantitative TCO analysis of the two architectures, and illustrates the key drivers of both the capex and opex savings of the improved architecture. Read White Paper #164

        Types of Prefabricated Modular Data Centers

        Data center systems or subsystems that are pre-assembled in a factory are often described with terms like prefabricated, containerized, modular, skid-based, pod-based, mobile, portable, self-contained, all-in-one, and more. There are, however, important distinctions between the various types of factory-built building blocks on the market. This paper proposes standard terminology for categorizing the types of prefabricated modular data centers, defines and compares their key attributes, and provides a framework for choosing the best approach(es) based on business requirements.

        Practical Considerations for Implementing Prefabricated Data Centers

        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. Read White Paper #166

        Inventing the DartPoints Private Colo™

        For many organizations, the choice between building a private data center and moving to a large colocation facility is a trade off. Private data centers are expensive to build and require meticulous advanced planning. Colocating to a large data center can be less expensive and provide flexibility for growth, but comes with the sacrifice of complete control. Read Inventing the DartPoints Private Colo™

      • Prefabricated Data Center Modules Provide Predictable Performance

        A high level of integration together with factory assembly and testing enables Schneider Electric's prefabricated data center modules to take a lot of the guesswork out of designed facility performance.
      • Does Prefabrication Mean Lower Cost Data Centers?

        Accounting for the total cost of data center construction is a complex equation which lacks a simple toolset for prefabricated and traditional builds to be compared. However, prefabrication offers the benefit of easier design, faster construction with less on-site services and more predictable performance.
