Information technology today is a world whose watchwords are volume, variety and velocity. We are awash in data from Facebook, Twitter, IMâ??s, internet searches, emails, video or mobile devices, etc. and updates are eagerly awaited.  That has made the data center a new type of utility: critical, essential infrastructure much like water or power.
As such, with a long construction cycle and a lifespan of 20 years, the typical monolithic greenfield data center is antithetical to the agility demanded by todayâ??s IT. It typically begins with a custom design which can become inflexible over time and requires inordinate amounts of energy, maintenance and capital.  Modular and containerized solutions offer an attractive alternative.
In this presentation we will discuss:
Definitions and differences for containerized and modular data centers and a comparison to the traditional approach.
A review of the major components of a containerized data center solution: IT, Power & Cooling
A case study for a containerized data center solution including selection, criteria, implementation, pros and cons.
