Powered shell data centers are facilities with exterior construction completed and available power and connectivity, but with the interior left as raw space to be finished by the customer.
Powered shells can be delivered as a section of an existing building in a colocation facility or as an entire building dedicated to a single customer.
The permitting process through local municipalities can be one of the most time consuming and arbitrary aspects of a building project. This is especially true in a specialized building like a data center. Powered shells come with all the approvals already in place.
With a powered shell, the site has already been screened, researched, and developed. There is no question of connectivity, or power, or security. There’s no need for your company to do any expensive and time-consuming research into a suitable site.
When your company or service offerings grow and your needs change, you do not have the responsibility of upgrading the facility and compliance. We handle upgrades and retrofits to ensure that our data center facilities can meet the demands of modern workloads.
Customize your data center design with a powered shell to best fit your needs. This might include a unique cooling solution, super-sized areas for easy server access and maintenance, additional network connectivity, a rework of the electrical system for additional redundancy, or even enhanced security.
Regardless of the complexity, our approach is always based on your data center design and operating needs.
