Modular data centers: Faster, more flexible and more energy-efficient in the data centers

What do modular UPS systems provide? What are the advantages of modular cooling systems? Astrid Hennevogl-Kaulhausen, Head of Mission Critical Infrastructure Solutions (MCIS), UPS Sales Germany, Delta Energy Systems, has some answers.

What differentiates modular data centers from conventional approaches, and what concrete benefits do they provide for the company? For which requirements are they the ideal solution? How do they need to be designed in order to provide their full technical and economic benefits?

Cloud computing, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) require data centers with significantly higher performance and flexibility. The requirements range from simple and short planning phases, to rapid deployment of applications and seamless scaling during ongoing operations, to greater energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

One approach for managing increasing complexity and greater requirements is the building of modular data centers. In practice, this means: Cooling, power supply and energy management systems are divided into individual components and modules. Any sub-area of the data center is designed according to a uniform standard based on its size, workload and configuration. This ensures fault-free, independent operation without shared resources….Read More
