‘Prefabricated data centres are part of the natural evolution of unified infrastructure,’ said Viktor Petik, managing director, Integrated Modular Solutions for Emerson Network Power in EMEA. ‘The modular approach has been available for a number of years in limited sizes and configurations, but we are now finally seeing its full potential and benefits. These include speed of deployment, scalability, design flexibility and cost control applied to facility scale, fully customisable data centres, as well as telecommunications infrastructures.’
The business case for prefabricated data centres is explained in the Executive Brief, ‘Prefabricated Data Centers: Are They Right for You?’ In the Playbook for Change, ‘Evaluating and Deploying Prefabricated Data Centers.’
‘When deciding whether to expand an existing facility or go ahead with a new build, prefabricated data centres offer a highly attractive solution,’ said Luka Gaspar, vice president, Business Development for Integrated Modular Solutions, Emerson Network Power in EMEA.
‘Today, CIOs and other decision makers have options that simply weren’t conceivable a few years ago. These new tools, such as the emerging category of unified infrastructure, mean that innovative solutions are now available to efficiently manage and optimise data centre growth.’
