Modular data centres 'are the future' - Data and Server Racks

As companies demand greater computing power, modular data centres look set to be the model of the future.

This is the view of Steve Wallage, a managing director at the Broadgroup consultancy, who told the Financial Times that the industry seems to be taking more of a one-size-fits-all approach.

"It is the future trend for most data centres," he remarked.

Mr Wallage acknowledged that in the past modular data centres were seen as "quite crude" and were often referred to as the "garbage cans" of the IT industry.

However, he claimed they have become "quite sexy" in the last year or two.

Also speaking to the Financial Times, Akber Jaffer, general manager at Colt Data Centre Services, said the market for data centres is ever increasing.

"People are running out of space and more importantly they're running out of power," he explained.

"Many of the data centres that were built ten or 15 years ago now require some kind of refresh."
