Data centres are morphing into smaller, higher density facilities. Micro data centres are increasing location options, releasing space within the estate and reducing carbon emissions and running costs. By consolidating services and introducing energy saving practises within the power hungry computer room infrastructure, energy use on DC facilities can be halved making a significant reduction to the whole estate carbon footprint.

In this Exchange delegates looked at how prefabricated and engineered as a system solutions enable flexibility of design to allow a greater choice of locations and upgrade strategies for the protection of IT services.
