We’ve been tracking the evolution of new modular data center designs featuring pre-fabricated, factory-built components that can be assembled at a customer site, allowing data centers to be built faster and cheaper.
One of the more interesting players in this niche is BladeRoom, a UK company that has adapted modular designs from its historic business building technical facilities and clean rooms for health care companies. Blade Room says it can provide modular, pre-fab data centers with a PUE approaching 1.15.
Here are two videos that offer a closer look at BladeRoom’s design approach. The first video provides an overview of the construction and deployment of BladeRoom modules, while the second video gives a walk-through of the cooling system for the modules. Each video runs about 90 seconds.
