Case Study: Modular Data Center
Many people write-off modular data centers as applying only to
scale out customers, without realizing modular enables mainstream
data center operators to deploy Enterprise availability with no
compromise – yet, faster, cheaper, and in right sized units of
capacity.
We will discuss how using standardized components and innovative
design allows the integration of both the infrastructure and IT into a
modular data center solution that provides significant time savings,
extreme energy efficiency, all for lower up-front investment and
lower operating cost.

Speed of deployment
4-6 months for containers vs. 18-24 months for “bricks & mortar”
Lower Upfront Investment
Don’t invest for all the infrastructure up front, just pay as you go
Lower Operating Costs
Modular is more efficient, higher average capacity achieved by better load matching
Infrastructure Designed to Fit Unique IT Loads
Critical Applications on 2N higher redundancy, and non-critical applications on (N+1)

Impact of Changing IT World
• Data Center power consumption shrinking (to
perform the same work)
• Consequently, physical space required shrinks
• TCO of a unit of IT work continues to decrease
rapidly
• Efficiency breeds Demand
•
•
Lower Cost = Higher Demand
Incremental deployments grow revenue and profit

Capacity options considered
Traditional brick and mortar
Build advanced energy efficient but still conventional brick & mortar data center
•
Known entity, high initial cost for significant capacity, lengthy funding to IT production
cycle
Build “Hybrid” using a brick & mortar whitespace with modular infrastructure
Leverage the quality and savings inherent in pre-configured, factory-built facility
infrastructure
•
Similar timeline to brick and mortar, new to everyone
Utilize a fully Containerized Modular Data Center approach
Deploy the HP 240a EcoPOD with third party containerized facility infrastructure
from partner
•
Rapid construction & deployment, factory racked & configured IT, likely most efficient,
new to everyone

Why PODs?
The EcoPOD was the optimal match for all HP IT requirements
Key factors made the HP 240a EcoPOD the clear winner
The EcoPOD met all “must-have” and all “strongly desired” requirements
• Highly available configuration – met or exceeded fault tolerant and continuously
maintainable requirements
• No changes in IT or facility processes – looks and supported like a brick and mortar
• Lower cost per kW of usable IT capacity than conventional brick and mortar builds
• Much faster timeline from funded project to production IT – compared to conventional
brick and mortar builds
• Efficiency, as measured in year round PUE, exceeded all other candidates

HP and GE Modular Solutions
Is it really lower total cost?
• Container deployment’s cost per kW are well below traditional brick & mortar
• Building a smaller unit of capacity – only what I need – saves even more
• Efficiency gains in equipment designs saves even more, and every day
Will it really be adopted more broadly?
• That depends. Data Center guys are a conservative bunch, and this is new for
engineers, architects, and general contractors.
• But there is plenty to do

Virtualization penetration
• Virtualization has a significant impact
on forecasting models
• Data was based on Gartner
virtualization projections
• An increase in the adoption rate or
limit on the maximum penetration
rate would affect outlook results
• Prediction: Virtualization will reach
saturation point by 2018
• After that, sharp increases in data
center capacity additions occur
