    Modular Data Center Cost

    I have seen some pretty cool articles recently regarding modular (container) data centers. Just looking to see if anyone out there has been through the purchasing, install, and usage experience.

    Is it more expensive than a typical DC, brick and mortar, with raised floor? What would a budget number be to get started? How long of a lead time is there?

    Thanks in advance for your feedback.

    I reasearched it a lot , but its very costly if you are wanting to do commercial COLO, works good for enterprise model. HP's POD starts at $1.5Million which is a turn key container with total infrastructure (ofcourse not the servers) just racks, cooling and stuff. And google has been using it for years now.
    Thats how they create 800 acres of server farm.
