Modular or traditional data center builds – is standardization now the key to mitigate risk and increase speed to market?
Large and fast data center builds don’t have to be complicated or risky. Using standard and proven engineering designs can reduce engineering and manufacturing time, and allow easy repeatability for scale. These designs are also easier to manage because expertise can be transferable from site to site and maintenance and service can be streamlined. Furthermore, leveraging modular and prefabricated modules can eliminate some site works, which is especially relevant under the current COVID-19 climate. Activities such as integration, testing, pre-commissioning can all be done in a controlled, off-site environment.
This session discuss how to realize the benefits of standardization and the pros and cons of modular construction.
