The demand for edge data centers has been growing over the past few years, and there is speculation we will see very large deployments beginning in 2021. This session will present lessons learned in the process of designing and building edge data centers over the past three years. For this presentation we define them as pre-fabricated data centers supporting critical loads no larger than 100 kW and housing 2 to 10 server racks. We will address challenges in attaining an ideal form factor (building shell and layout), optimizing power distribution and cooling, transportation, and installation.
