Modular Data Centres

DC Two has developed a high density and transportable data centre
that can be deployed 'behind the meter' at power generation sites.

Flexible, High Density Hosting

  • Based on durable ISO standard sea containers and non-ruggedized insulated variants
  • Quick and easy deployment in any location
  • Small sized and highly transportable
  • Only requires power and data connectivity
  • Very high density - up to 40kw per rack for ALL racks
  • Suitable for cost effective, high performance or super computing specific workloads

The Modular Opportunity

  • DC Modular allows data centres to locate in close proximity to power generation sites in regional locations to access reduced power prices for data centre operation.
  • Access to globally competitive power prices enable DC Two to decrease the operational costs of running your data centres, passing savings on to customers.
  • Significant opportunity to utilise wind, solar and other renewable power sources to offer a "green powered" service to Australian customers seeking more ecocredentials across their business.
