    The modular prefabricated model allows a company to customize each module to match the respective data-center environments that its customers needed. Being able to have four data centers with four different types of cooling systems, for example, is a huge selling point.

Fitting all software and equipment into a trailer-sized unit, containerized data centers are customized to support a company’s specific power conditions or cooling-method needs. Prefabricated data centers are shipped to the customer site with the majority of construction completed offsite; these modules are designed to be deployed within a building or computer-like powered shells.
