Microsoft's Modular Datacenter Overview of the Quincy, WA Facility
The expansion in Quincy takes these ideas a step further by extending the flexibility of PACs across the entire facility using modular "building blocks" for electrical, mechanical, server and security subsystems. This increase in flexibility enables us to even better support the needs of what can often be a very unpredictable online business and allows us to build datacenters incrementally as capacity grows. Our modular design enables us to build a facility in significantly less time while reducing capital costs by an average of 50 to 60 percent over the lifetime of the project.
