This is a huge shift in data center development, one that shows that the concept of data centers is still in its infancy, Pelio said.
"We just provide the power and connectivity," he said. "Our solution is agnostic to the vendors. It's very simple for us. We provide the space and plug-ins. Whatever the customer wants to use, they just bring it in. The first modular container came in by truck and was ready to go in one hour."
Using containerized data center modules is really all about providing total cost of ownership to data center customers, Pelio said.
