Modular Data Center

A modualr data center with 8 modules. 6 of the modules are connected to form one room. The other two are fro the UPS and generator.

E3's Data Center Modules are unlike any traditional data center. Our modules are flexible, scalable and inherently efficient.


Our modules give you all the advantages of modular construction (time to deployment, efficiency, high density, etc.) but unlike containerized data centers, they are easy to maintain due to their ladder rack above the racks and below the raised floor.

Advantages of Modular Construction
1253 Hybrid CIM Micro Datacenter 01_edit
Cost Savings - Lower TCO
  • Reduced Energy Consumption
  • Excellent Power Utilization Effectiveness
  • Lower Initial Investment
  • Higher Power Density
  • Only buy the infrastructure you need
Time to Deployment
  • Construction occurs at the same time as permitting
  • Modules can be deployed in multiple stages
  • Monetize assets sooner
Flexibility - Size, Weight, Configuration
  • Deploy on rooftops, alleyways, indoors, outdoors, and in any climate
  • Modules can be as small as a tool shed or can comprise an entire data center
  • 48 Different Size Configurations
  • Aluminum construction and lithium batteries are available for weight-limited deployments
Energy Costs
A pie chart showing numbers for the energy costs of modualr data cneters and traditional data cneters. Modular data centers are roughly 3/4 of the energy cost as compared to a tradittional one.

The chart above is a simple comparison of monthly energy costs of a 10MW data center. This is based on the average PUE of a data center, which is 1.7 according to the EIA. The EIA believes that this has dropped from 2.2 to 1.7 because of the implementation of water cooling, containment, and modular data centers. Realistically, the traditional data center could cost as much as $1,300,000 a month!

A comparison of a containerized data center and one in a modualr building. There is a man t demonstrate how little space is available in the container. The modualr building has a vestibule, aisle containment and 3ft wide aisles and raised floors for easy maintenance.
Containers? No thanks.


Many of our customers switched to our modules after trying containerized solutions. As you can see on the right, ISO shipping containers are tiny and there is not enough room for proper maintenance. This actually increases TCO above that of a traditional data center! Our modules are built to have a twenty-year lifespan, allowing you to reuse the same module for many generations of equipment.

Modular data centers can be used for a variety of purposes ranging from colocation to big data. We have designed modules for housing everything from 1 rack to 22 racks.
