What makes the Datapod System, a complete manufactured data center?

The Datapod System provides the complete suite of site infrastructure sub-systems including IT-, facility and structural centric infrastructure systems for the day to day operation of your data center.

The Datapod System includes seven main building blocks, and the packaged services required to deploy and support these blocks.

The central component of any deployment will be the unique ‘Connection Node’.

The Connection Node could be described as a ‘plant room in a box’, because it contains all the connection points and services typically found in the plant room of a commercial building. 

Once deployed onsite, the necessary services (mains power, generator power, chilled/condenser water, datacomms and network links can all be connected.

The backup generator and chillers to run the air-conditioning systems are incorporated in the Utilitypod, which feeds into the Connection Node.

The Connection Node then supplies these services into the first of the Datapod data center building-blocks – known as the Starterpod.

Then ‘Expanderpod’ building blocks can be added to give the customer the capacity and space they require.

To complete the data center space, the ‘Endpod’ is added. In some areas where climatic or environmental conditions dictate, an ‘Entrypod’ gives the facility an added degree of protection against unwanted elements entering the data center.

The Entrypod can also provide additional desk, storage or burn-in space. 

To see how all of the Datapods can be used together, download the Datapod App from the App Store.

As each of the Expanderpod building blocks extends the IT capacity of the system, additional UPS and battery modules are incorporated. These are installed into the UPS chassis housed in the Starterpod, increasing power capacity and battery run time in accordance with the new rack capacity being added.
