Two stage modular data center deployment

Two stage data center deployment
Datapod can assist organisations to clip on extra data center capacity as they need it, and without the need for downtime.

Watch this short video to see how this proposed site in the United States uses an disused carpark to build a data center.

The first half of the data center would be deployed in year one, with the second stage deployed between 12 and 24 months later. Allowing the organisation to better manage their data center resourcing over a number of budgets.

According to Mr Smith and other industry experts the data center industry is at the beginning of a period of fundamental, disruptive change.

Data Center 2.0 | The Perfect Storm Presentation

A combination of technological, economic and market factors have created the perfect storm, resulting in data centers increasingly engineered and constructed in a fundamentally different way than in the past and this will be the focus of his presentation.

Mr Smith said, “The emergence of prefabricated, factory acceptance tested, modular data centers will have a major impact on the data center industry, in fact the revolution has already begun.”

During the presentation 'Data Center 2.0 – The perfect storm has arrived’ Mr Smith will introduce Datapod's methodology of standardized, pre-engineered and pre-built set of building blocks.

Being widely adopted as the future of Data Centers (Data Center 2.0), the Datapod System is a truly modular, scalable set of building blocks that has been designed over several years enabling users to realize the benefits of standardization, manufacturing efficiencies and reduced time to deployment.

The system has proven to help clients align their infrastructure deployments to their technology requirements-in both size/capacity, time to deployment, duration of useful life and location/flexibility.


• Data center owners and operators facing challenges to meet growth demands from customers

• Multi-tenant and enterprise data center decision makers currently tasked with developing future technological data center strategies

• Architectural, engineering and design firms with speciality areas focusing on data centers

• Traditional back-end data center equipment vendors (i.e. power and cooling infrastructure) aiming to compete in the future data center market

• Financial professionals considering investments in data center properties and companies

Data Centre Manufacturer Opens Doors To Leading CIO’s From Around The World

International delegations are being amazed by the factory inspections offered by modular data centre manufacturer Datapod.

Datapod’s manufactured modular data centre designs means  CIO’s can ‘right-size’ their data centre needs in real time enabling organisations to better adapt to the rapid advances in the data centre industry and avoid being trapped by old and out dated technologies.

The revolutionary Datapod approach has caught the eye of leading organisations from around Australia and the world and for the next three weeks Datapod has opened the doors to their Hume factory in Canberra Australia to allow CIO’s a behind the scenes look at the cutting edge system.

The factory visits allow customers to see how this technology can reduce environmental impacts as well as significantly reduce operational costs when compared to traditional data centre design.

Datapod Director Adam Smith said, “This is the first time we have opened our site and encouraged CIO’s to come and inspect our test facilities and the initiative has been warmly embraced. Representatives from government and industry are keen to see how we have engineered the Datapod System for optimum energy efficiency and how the award-winning design enables the system to be mass manufactured, factory tested and deployed within three months.”

“We are literally having clients leaving our facilities wide-eyed with amazement. Once customers see how easily the  Datapod modules can be combined and reconfigured over time to create more efficient, flexible and robust data centre facilities or data parks, that is when the penny drops so to speak,” added Mr Smith.
