Altron Modular introduces the third generation of EdgeDC, the modular data center


The company provided the first generation of the modular data center in 2001 for a humanitarian mission in Kosovo, where it facilitated the immediate resumption of telecommunications services. Immediately after its launch, the second generation became another successful product widely popular among state institutions and clients from the public sector. Local clients include Na Homolce Hospital, the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic or the state enterprise Forests of the Czech Republic. Looking abroad, we can find Altron data centers supplied to Ooredoo Oman LLC, Digital eGovernment of Sharjah and the Ministry of the Interior in the United Arab Emirates.

In the third generation, the company’s development team has focused on major improvements in response to current customer needs across markets and segments. Significant modifications followed in terms of performance and architecture (up to 120kW for ICT performance and up to 16 racks in one 45-foot module). However, EdgeDC has also been completely rebuilt in terms of design and aesthetics, offering increased durability and backing it up with a 20-year construction warranty. And its new standardized production process allows Altron to shorten delivery times while increasing the resulting quality.

All these changes are also positively reflected in lowering acquisition and operating costs. The third-generation module can effectively reduce energy demands, e.g., by coupling with photovoltaic systems or advanced free cooling technology.

A newly opened production plant will produce the third-generation EdgeDC. Altron Modular sized its capacity for semi-series production of several hundred modules per year and has plans for future development. The new hall will in fact accommodate other products that the company plans to introduce next year.
