“Cannon demonstrates visionary product innovations and technology incubations in three distinct categories – structural concepts, data hall usability concepts, and power and cooling concepts,” said Gautham Gnanajothi, Global Research Director. “Its groundbreaking technology, the Cannon Geodesic, allows data center operators to employ modular build-outs even for large scale deployments. This technology is based on its latest iteration of the geodesic steel construction system, which is influenced by an aerospace-type building construction system.”

With its innovative geodesic construction, Cannon eliminates legacy-related issues such as wide roof span and the associated large trusses and frequent inconvenience of structural columns. This, in turn, significantly reduces project complexity and increases design options. Irrespective of site conditions, the geodesic design optimizes site utilization and achieves maximum space coverage. One of the key features of this technology is its ability to generate curved walls seamlessly, while perfectly maintaining structural integrity, without any need for special engineering. Furthermore, the geodesic structure comprises strong, lightweight, portable, precision steel components and mostly avoids the use of usual site-based heavy machinery.

Cannon places emphasis on the core aspects of its product development process – simplicity, efficiency, and reliability. Its targeted innovation focuses on creating solutions based on the market’s current and future needs such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), increasing power density, edge implementation, Internet of Things (IoT), and virtualization. This enables the company to develop futuristic solutions that deliver high power density, low energy loss, flexible investment, rapid deployment, and dynamic data center management.

“Cannon’s process design excellence is underpinned by continuous improvement and development of operating and construction efficiencies within its data centers,” noted Gnanajothi. “Its technology excellence helps it quickly customize solutions when required. By always being ahead of the competition in identifying/analyzing Mega Trends and developing products that effectively address customer pain points, Cannon has positioned itself for continued market growth.”

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents a Company of the Year award to the organization that demonstrates excellence in terms of growth strategy and implementation in its field. The award recognizes a high degree of innovation with products and technologies, and the resulting leadership in terms of customer value and market penetration.
