American critical infrastructure specialist Vertiv has launched two product lines for modular data centers. The first, Vertiv SmartMod, offers customers pre-fabricated, container-based data centers that can be configured to include the company’s power distribution and cooling equipment. The second, Power Module, is a weatherproof container designed specifically to house UPS systems, batteries and thermal management kit. Vertiv says the new products will enable customers to spend significantly less time on data center installation. They are available immediately in Europe, Middle East and Africa – availability in the US is expected later in 2019. According to 451 Research, the market for prefabricated modular data center equipment is set to expand at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.4 percent through 2021, when it will have reached $4.4bn.
