Many information technology (IT) professionals have a narrow view of the potential of modular data centers, seeing them as just a way to scale existing data centers with increased server capacity but at substandard availability. In the past 18 months, new approaches and technologies are becoming more accepted in the typically conservative data center market. Data center operators – from hyper-scale companies to enterprise facilities like we see in healthcare or financial services – are deploying containerized data centers with higher efficiency, lower total cost of ownership (TCO) from lower capital expenses (CapEx) and operational expenses (OpEx), and more flexible and scalable capacity with as good or better availability.
