Prefab data centers: Quantifying the rack density impact

Quantitative Analysis of a Prefabricated vs. Traditional Data Center

Cover

Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers: Flexibility, improved predictability, and faster speed of deployment are high among these benefits. Cost, however, is often a barrier to prefab design deployment. Is the investment worth the expense?

In this white paper, quantify the capital cost differences between prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data centers, as well as explore the key cost drivers and learn why prefabrication does not come at a capex premium. Access this paper to discover the impact of rack density for both designs, and discover a side-by-side architecture comparison between prefab and “stick built” that examines IT configuration, target availability, and more.
