Submission + - HP spreads wings with 'butterfly' data centers (

mister_dave writes: HP has published plans for modular, pre-fabricated data centers.

"Peter Gross, vice president and general manager of Critical Facilities Services at HP, estimates that a modern brick-and-mortar data center costs about $25m per megawatt. But by standardizing components in the prefabricated data centers – and by building and testing them back in a factory instead of custom designing each data center and custom building it – Gross says that HP and its partners with the Flexible DC product will be able to put a data center into the field for one half to one third that cost. And instead of taking two years to build it, HP will be able to do it in six to nine months."
