Global Containerized and Modular Data Center Market 2017-2021
About Contanarized and Modular Data Center
Containerized data centers are portable data center inside a shipping container with pre-installed data center infrastructure. These data center are a part of the modular data center, where each module is a container that can host IT, power, and cooling infrastructure to power critical business operations. The deployment cost of these container data center solution is less compared with building and renovating new traditional data center facilities. For the same amount of workload, these data center facilities consume less power in contrast with traditional facilities. The containerized data centers are also easy to relocate from one location to another and can be managed centrally. It is also available in 20 ft. and 40 ft.-long sizes that are delivered based on end-users on-demand.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global contanarized and modular data center market to grow at a CAGR of 12.30% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Contanarized and Modular Data Center Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global contanarized and modular data center market: Baselayer Technology, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Rittal, Schneider Electric, and Vertiv.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aceco TI, Active Power, BladeRoom, CANCOM, Cannon Technologies, CELESTE, Datapod, Dell, Eaton, Etix Everywhere, Flexenclosure, Gardner DC Solutions, GE Industrial Solutions, Green MDC, ICTroom, Inspur, Johnson Controls, Keysource, NTR, PCX, Project Frog, The Smart Cube, Telenetix, Total Site Solutions, TSI, Workspace Technology, and ZTE.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in market is implementation of software-defined modular data center. A software-defined modular data center refers to a data center where infrastructure is delivered as a service through virtualization of the physical infrastructure, i.e., hardware infrastructure is managed through intelligent software systems. A software-defined data center (SDDC) supports both legacy applications and cloud computing services and improves efficiency, lowers costs, provides applications in minutes, offers higher availability and better security, and creates an opportunity for the delivery of workloads through the cloud. It comprises three components: SDN, SDC, and SDS. Enterprises adopting cloud-based infrastructure will consider the possibility of establishing SDDC to achieve a better control over business-critical operations and enhance the management of their data center facilities.”
According to the report, one driver in market is rapid deployment of data centers. With fast changing business requirements, there is increased need among organizations to deploy fresh data centers as well as add additional data center capabilities at a much shorter time. The traditional data center deployment approach requires a huge amount of time for designing and building. The normal data center deployment requires around eighteen to twenty-four months to become fully operational. Since modular data centers are preassembled with standardized components such as racks and IT infrastructure, the deployment of the data center through modular model can be done within six months. Containerized facilities are available within four months, which is typically six times faster than traditional data center construction.
Further, the report states that one challenge in market is lack of awareness and expertise. Not all the data center operators are aware of the benefits gained through operating modular facilities. Still, the construction activities of traditional brick and mortar facility are higher when compared with the modular ones. In every region around the globe modular facilities are growing in numbers as they are popular among colocation and telecommunication service providers. Enterprises are unaware of the incremental CAPEX involved in the construction of modular facilities. The construction of traditional facility requires high upfront costs compared with that of modular construction. Organization can also add modules as the demand grows.
