The Data Center is the Module
Does it seem like every modular data center comes in a small box or has more columns than the Parthenon? With Compass the answer is no. The CompassPod is the basic building block of a Compass Data Center standalone data center and has been designed to embrace the latest innovations in technology and modular data center design. As a result, each Pod features its own dedicated MEP infrastructure, a traditional raised floor environment within a hardened facility to enable you to easily expand your data center by adding new fully Level 5 commissioned CompassPods as you need them with no disruption to your business. In the Compass Truly Modular™ Architecture the data center is the module.
A Versatile Building Block
Each CompassPod features 1.2 MW of power to support rack densities up to 20kW without containment for you or your customers and 10,000 square feet of column free 36” raised floor space. We’ve developed this column free approach to increase your rack layout flexibility and to provide improved revenue streams for service providers through maximized cabinet layouts and enhanced product offerings.

We’ve Flattened the PUE Curve
We build every CompassPod to LEED Gold standards for enhanced sustainability and our “Minimum Load, Maximum Performance Architecture™” leverages outside air economization and very large VFD fans to provide you PUE levels that would normally require a full 100% load at utilization rates as low as 25%. By flattening the PUE curve Compass reduces your on-going power costs and also provides you low PUE levels at 25% load rather than at 100% load with other data centers.
Running your data center at 90-100% of your IT capacity can have serious repercussions for your business. You need room to support unforeseen events like new applications and business acquisitions. This means that operating your data center at partial load must be incorporated into your operational planning.
The need for understanding partial load performance is particularly acute for service providers. Without this information predicting your margins on power would be virtually impossible.
DID YOU KNOW?
Contrary to popular belief, free air cooling can be used in virtually any US location. Of course Santa Clara has 8760 hours of free cooling hours per year but did you know that Houston has as many as 3666? Compass solutions take advantage of controls to synchronize each rooftop air handler. The key benefit to you is both lower PUE and utility costs.
