The speed of disruption and the current data surge cycle continues to demand transformation in the data center industry. The response to these demands bring prefabricated modular (PFM) data centers to the arena - delivering low-risk, high-value implementations with the added benefits of faster delivery and easier on-site assembly.

But new technology invariably introduces a knowledge gap, and perceived risks of the unknown: what do we mean when we say prefabricated, what do we mean when we say modular, and what benefits do they confer to the construction, operation, and modification of critical facilities like data centers?

This white paper addresses those questions and provides clarity on the specific benefits that PFM data centers can offer over traditional construction techniques; benefits that could eventually see PFM shift from being an alternative and disruptive technology to becoming the default option for new data center capacity in the future
