The vision: The future is modular!

MDC Stockholm is a contender to conventional data centers. Future information centers can be entire cities of steel, based on single units docked to each other - module by module – growing forever.

If humanity colonized Mars, who would dream of building an entire city from day one? With air conditioning, oxygen supply and electrical power for thousands of humans - although only a dozen researchers would move in at start.

MDC Stockholm would build such an outpost in installments. We would manufacture fully functioning modules on earth, ship them to Mars and connect them to others.

Conventional data centers were built on dreams. Enormous capital investment, nerve-wrecking overcapacity before space had been filled. Risky decisions on when to initiate a new center given that it may take two years from pressing “Go” to launch time.

That is history. The future is modular!

Scalability is now expanded into the physical world of data centers. Instead of locking yourself into a limited and fixed space, you can organically increase your data center, as you get new customers. In fact, any firm or institution can now have their own carrier grade data center for their IT infrastructure.

We have more than two decades of experience in IT operations and development of conventional data centers. Together with Swedish Steel, SSAB, we now expand the horizon to new visionary frontiers.

SSAB has cutting edge knowledge of metallurgy. The MDC modules are constructed from an alloy of Swedish steel, originally developed for military use in Iraq and Afghanistan, but now adapted for IT operations with extreme demands.

We at MDC use our own experience, including the design of "Pionen", the data center constructed within a nuclear bunker for clients with special security needs – among them Wikileaks. YouTube movie of Pionen.

We focus on a future that is inspired by an outpost on Mars: durable, reliable, secure, self-sustaining, power-efficient, scalable - and modular. Join the technological revolution. Let us inspire you to build a city of solid steel, or just a heavy-duty housing module for your precious machines.

Do you see it written in the sky? The future is modular!

Turn Key Solution!

A complete MDC module consists of four parts. When you expand you don't have to add all of them however
