Getting started: IBM’s approach to modular data center design is not about containerization but about using smaller increments of standardised components, making it possible to add data center capacity when needed and thus helping more closely align IT with business requirements.

Evaluating solutions: Modular data centers allow you to pay as you grow—whether you are a medium-sized or large enterprise.
