Cannon Technologies design, manufacture & build scalable fixed and transportable modular data centres (MDC) for worldwide infrastructure & communication systems. Typical “System Ready” pre-build modules range from small scale facilities to large scalable modular facilities housing multi-megawatt power, cooling and rack rooms. For the Defence sector, Cannon has delivered pre-engineered and pre-built facilities, providing IT hosting facilities to fit within existing buildings. As well as Modular semi-permanent facilities located at Operational Bases as well as Air Transportable Module facilities to support Disaster Recovery at MOD bases overseas.

Cannon’s MDC success lies in its team of skilled professionals whose depth of experience is unmatched, technology that sets the standard for the industry, and an unwavering commitment to providing excellent support for its customers.


Cannon’s Transportable MDC “GLOBE TROTTER” comes in various form factors including the ISO and Dual ISO Clamshell.

Using almost forty years of experience, Cannon has pre-engineered a range of floor plans and capacities to provide a number of standard solutions with low to high power and cooling densities as well as JSP 440 and 480 requirements. The Dual ISO Clamshell is a mid-sized, transportable Modular Data Centre with increased floor space. Wide aisles and deep racks provide excellent work space and promote efficiency. Each individual module, which forms the two-part clamshell, is easily transported using standard ISO container transportation and handling systems.

The “Soft-Ride” Globe Trotter is a small capacity, transportable Modular Data Centre providing a complete data centre solution, also meeting JSP440 and 480 standards, requiring only mains or generator power and data communications as external dependencies. The “soft-ride” racks provide protection from vibration & shock, enabling standard rack mounted IT to be installed and then shipped ready for use. Current solutions provided to the MOD have been; certified for transport in both C130 & C17 airframes and have been designed to support IT Disaster Recovery capability for overseas sites, throughout the world. On arrival, the DR system can be ready for use within 3 hours, as demonstrated at Ex Joint Venture 2016.


Cannon provides GLOBE TROTTER with the scalability, flexibility, and reliability to enable rapid delivery of a more efficient small data centre solution to its customers. GLOBE TROTTER MDCs can also be installed with wheels to enable easy movement once on site either by hand or standard tow bar equipped vehicles such as Land Rovers.
