Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a “total cost of ownership” (TCO) savings of  30% compared to traditional, built-out data center power and cooling infrastructure.  Avoiding overbuilt capacity and scaling the design over time contributes to a significant percentage of the overall savings.  

This white paper provides a quantitative TCO analysis of the two architectures, and illustrates the key drivers of both the capex and opex savings of the improved architecture.
