New service based around the Globe Trotter transportable container
Cannon Technologies has launched a data centre leasing service that offers organisations a solution to medium-term capacity needs. This new service offers Cannon Technologies’ Globe Trotter modular data centres with no upfront capital investment.
With a minimum lease period of one year, this solution would be ideal for an organisation looking to temporarily expand its operations, migrate from an existing facility to a new one, or maintain uptime while work is carried out on a data centre.
Based on a ‘pay as you go’ model, customers can configure their leased modular data centre to meet their exact technological and budgetary requirements, ensuring maximum flexibility and financial efficiency.

To lease, or not to lease?
Cannon Technologies’ leasing service is based around the Globe Trotter transportable modular data centre solution. Comprising ISO approved high specification containerised pre-fabricated modules that are available in 6m and 12m double and triple clamshell variants, Globe Trotter offers the functionality of a conventional data centre in a construction that can be sited indoors or outdoors.
Globe Trotter utilizes full-size 19-inch cabinets and wide aisles. Each unit comes turnkey ready with power, cooling, containment and cable management. Optional features can include pre-installed servers, switches, modular or fixed UPS systems, LED lighting, and PDUs with N+1 redundancy. With extensive capacity options, the typical power and cooling density of an installed system is 4-6kW per rack, but can go up as high as 20kW.
Deployed all over the world, the Globe Trotter range (left) is also energy efficient with a low power usage effectiveness (PUE) rating. Its climate control system can use either direct or indirect filtered free cooling or direct expansion (DX) technology that can deal with temperatures ranging from +58°C to -46°C.
This is an extension to Cannon’s already wide modular data center portfolio
