  • BladeRoom module types

    BladeRoom's datacentres are all designed to be broken down into individual pre-engineered modular components. These modules come in three varieties: air optimiser, IT module and power management.

    They can be trucked down the motorway and loaded onto ships for international delivery. BladeRoom is using this method to transport the Australian-bound Metronode modules (pictured).
