Infrastructure and communications solutions provider CommScope recently unveiled Data Center on Demand, its newest modular data center offering. The new approach to rapidly established structures enables facility operators to benefit from boosted flexibility and increased efficiency in comparison with traditional brick-and-mortar data center projects.
Modular Data Center Market Demands
The main factors driving the demand for modular data centers is the need of data center companies to address capacity, scalability and data center sustainability requirements. Additionally, clients also require solutions that allow them to relocate the facility per their needs. As more organizations become aware of the modular solutions on the market, adoption will increase.

CommScope noted that a number of factors have created the need for this type of solution in the industry, including accelerated technological advances in the sector and the ongoing requirement for operators to mitigate financial risk.
Kevin St Cyr, CommScope senior vice president, said today’s businesses struggle with the large amounts of data associated with current processes and must explore strategies to grow the company’s capacity.
