The data center also features advances in modularity, allowing for high-density of servers. eBay Inc. collaborated with Dell and Hewlett-Packard to design the world’s densest modular design¹ and largest single-deployment² ever.
Built next to an existing, live data center that utilizes a traditional power and structure design, the new data center addition has broken the mold. The project included the build-out of white space, a spine building, and site work to support two modular data centers and 6MW of initial power.
