This year's conference focusing on virtualization, cloud computing and other emerging technologies will be held June 13-15 at The Peabody Orlando in Orlando, Florida.
"These [modular] solutions can provide much-needed capacity quickly and, in some cases, be the cornerstone for a long-term data center strategy," reports David Cappuccio, Managing Vice President of Gartner. "When comparing modular designs that are prebuilt at a factory versus a purpose-built design constructed using traditional methods, capital costs savings of 20% to 30% are not unusual."*
