Datapod: Two Stage Modular Data Center Deployment from Datapod on Vimeo.

This 3D video shows a fly through of a new proposed facility in the United States.

The video illustrates a ‘two stage’ deployment where the original modular data center system is deployed and commissioned with the extra capacity added 24 months later in stage two.

Importantly, as stage two is added to the original Datapod System, the modular data center remains in operation and does not require downtime to add the stage two modules.

The video also shows the layout and plans for the two data halls with both data halls featuring dual hot aisle access and fire suppression systems.

The Datapod System also features two modules in the center of the system used as an NOC (network operations center) for the data center staff as well as the a mandatory Connection Node, where all services, including power and communications enter the system.

For built in redundancy each stage of the Datapod System contains a Utilitypod. The Utilitypod provides backup power should mains power to the data center fail.
