Modular Monday: Closer Look at 4 Offerings

<img src="/sites/datacenterknowledge.com/files/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/uptime-composite.jpg" alt="" title="uptime-composite" width="470" height="301" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-72485" /> The Data Center Knowledge staff conducted video overviews and walk-throughs of each of the four pre-fabricated modular data centers on display at The Uptime Symposium last week, including products from Active Power, IO, Digital Realty and Schneider Electric.

One of the key features of The Uptime Symposium was the Modular Data Center Campus, a section of the expo hall which featured full-size products from four providers of pre-fabricated modular infrastructure. To provide our readers with better understanding of this emerging product sector, the Data Center Knowledge staff conducted video overviews and walk-throughs of each of the modules.

Active Power PowerHouse: An infrastructure module featuring a rotary UPS (flywheel) system and a generator to support an IT module or expand the power capacity of traditional data center space.

Schneider Electric: An electrical power module, part of several containerized infrastructure modules from Schneider Electric.

IO.Anywhere: An IT module from IO that can be incorporated into a larger system of modules to provide power and cooling support infrastructure.

Digital Realty POD Architecture 2.0: A pre-fabricated power room that is built in a factory and delivered, shrink-wrapped, to a customer's site.

The Uptime Symposium also featured extensive discussion of the economics of moular data centers, which is summarized at Uptime: Modular Design Offers CapEx Savings. For more of our coverage of modular designs, check out our Modular Data Centers Channel.
