Data Center Services

Modular solutions take some of the best ideas for design, reliability and efficiency to create an optimized and more flexible data center

As you adopt more cloud-based technologies, a modular architecture can support additional workload and business demands.

Using a flexible and compact modular design that can be deployed quickly at virtually any location, an IBM prefabricated modular data center features an IT vendor-neutral, high-density computing solution. It also supports nearly any rack-mount technology while helping protect against environmental conditions. In addition, this portable and scalable solution offers robust data center assessment, design, build and relocation services.

Keep pace with business demands
Standardized solutions result in quicker turnarounds, from order to deployment
