Simple and rapid deployment of self-contained, high density pods within an existing or new low-density data
center is possible with today’s power and cooling technology. The independence of these high-density pods allow for predictable and reliable operation of high-density equipment without a negative impact on the performance of existing low-density power and cooling infrastructure. A side benefit is that these high density pods operate at much higher electrical efficiency than conventional designs. Guidance on planning design, implementation, and predictable operation of high-density pods is provided.
