Datacenter 2.0 - The Industrial Evolution
The datacenter industry is at the beginning of a period of fundamental, disruptive change. A combination of technological, economic and market factors have been coming together, with the result that datacenters are increasingly being engineered and constructed in a fundamentally different way than in the past. We believe that the emergence of prefabricated, modular datacenters will have a major impact on the datacenter industry - its ecosystem, its economics and its technology. This report helps define the taxonomy and provides an initial scoping of the market size. It also discusses future trends and expectations and gives snapshots for most of the high-profile companies currently innovating toward datacenter modularity.
