This paper proposes standard terminology for categorizing the types of prefabricated modular data centers, defines and compares their key attributes, and provides a framework for choosing the best approach(es) based on business requirements.
In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come
at a capex premium.
Earlier this year, Schneider Electric launched its preconfigured edge datacenter resources with its SmartBunker and SmartShelter products. In developing these products, Schneider closely examined the requirements for successful, secure, rapid edge deployments in support of the explosion of edge data. The result is a standardized solution that can be customized as required and deployed virtually anywhere.
This paper discusses making realistic improvements to power, cooling, racks, physical security, monitoring, and lighting. The focus of this paper is on small server rooms and branch offices with up to 10kW of IT load.
When it comes to speed in the data center, timing is everything. The challenge is to look ahead and know what you have to be prepared to deliver—in the immediate future and later on—and chart the most expedient and flexible course forward.

This report tackles the challenges, standards and best approaches to thermal efficiency in existing facilities largely due to them being more prevalent when compared to a new facility. You will be introduced to four best practices that are absolutely critical to achieving an optimal thermal environment. The report also explores the future of datacenter cooling and introduces emerging technologies.
The most important factors that determine the correct operation of modern automation, electronics, industrial computers and other devices are the correct power supply and the appropriate climatic conditions. These are necessary to ensure ongoing operation of priority infrastructure equipment – server room, data communication, power engineering.
This white paper provides an overview of free cooling for data centers. It consists of a general description of free cooling and an explanation of different available free cooling solutions, as well as their strengths and weaknesses. The term “free cooling” is equivalent to the term “economizer” that is nowadays predominantly used in the North American region.
