What is a modular data center (MDC)?

Modular data center

In the digital age, the need to handle large amounts of data has increased exponentially. The construction of data centres has become one of the main concerns of companies. In search of a solution to the problems that arise when building and maintaining a data center, a new alternative has emerged: the Modular Data Center (MDC).

MDC is a solution based on the construction of data centers in prefabricated modules that are assembled and integrated into the existing infrastructure at the site where they will be installed. The primary goal of a MDC is to provide a faster and more efficient data center solution for businesses that need additional IT capacity, without the need to build a complete data center from scratch.

A MDC can be installed in a fraction of the time it takes to build a conventional data center, making it ideal for businesses that need a quick and cost-effective solution.

Why invest in a modular data center?

Modular data centers are designed to meet build and market processes, and allow for internal and external customization of pre-assembled units to create efficient and optimal IT spaces. They also combine power, cooling, management and security into a powerful data source that simplifies IT deployments in remote environments.

The assembly work of the MDC can be done in parallel with the actual physical space where the servers are located, which speeds up construction and connection, reducing development times

Advantages of a MDC

More flexible. It adapts quickly and perfectly to any space. They are designed in different ways to meet the needs of commercial or industrial applications.

Speed. Reduces assembly time and simplifies alignment with factory procedures.

Predictability because you always know what equipment you need to install, if it is available, delivery times and, most importantly, the total price.

Data centers are growing rapidly, and the secret to success for vendors is to provide customers with a reliable, scalable, and fast-to-deploy IT infrastructure without compromising security or quality of service. Today’s data center management means faster response times to stay competitive and meet business demands.

Modular data centers improve efficiency and sustainability

Sustainability is no longer just a wish, but a necessity at all social and business levels. One of the factors influencing business decisions is therefore respect for the environment. This is one of the biggest benefits of a modular data center, as it increases energy efficiency by tailoring the location to IT needs. In addition, the latest technological advances have been developed to reduce environmental impact, improve performance and reduce costs. With multiple configuration options available depending on processing needs and space constraints, this flexibility is very useful for businesses that avoid standardization and consider future expansion plans.

The benefits of modular data centers

  • Application time reduced by a high percentage compared to conventional equipment.
  • Ability to implement data centers in non-traditional environments.
  • Ready to use guaranteed within a short time after project approval.
  • Since they are scalable solutions, they become a profitable investment because only the necessary installation equipment is purchased.
  • By allowing the data center infrastructure to receive real-time alerts and data from remote facilities, it is possible to maximize the uptime of these critical systems and operations.
