Modular datacenter technology
A datacenter where all the necessary functions (including racks, power supply, and air conditioning) have been laid out for maximum efficiency and modularized. Compared to previous one-off designs for datacenters, this allows datacenters to be quickly and incrementally expanded in modular units.
 PUE design value
The PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) value is an index expressing the ratio of power consumed by the datacenter as a whole to power consumed by the IT equipment inside it, with the goal being to come as close to 1.0 as possible. An important factor in this is the extent to which air-conditioning power is minimized, as that is typically second to IT equipment in power consumption. Fujitsu's design goal here was a PUE of less than 1.2.
