Types of Prefabricated Modular Data Centers
Data center systems or subsystems that are preassembled in a factory are often described with terms like prefabricated, containerized, modular, skid-based,
pod-based, mobile, portable, self-contained, all-in-one, and more. There are, however, important distinctions between the various types of factory-built building blocks on the market. This paper propose 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.
