    Data centres are the backbone of internet such as web hosting, e-business and trading, and social networking. Today, modern business operations rely heavily on the internet and services IT. The increasing demand of is challenging the data centre operators to manage the data centre resources. The increasing trend of energy consumption in data centre comes from the IT systems such as server, storage, network and from the nonIT systems such as cooling system and power system. The development of modular data centres has attracted a lot of attention due to their excellent stability, scalability and economic feasibility. This particular design meets the business requirements such as flexibility, shorter deployment time, high efficiency and effectiveness, and lower capital investment. This research paper focuses on the modified feature of mobility and modularity by data centres without any negative impact on the availability, capacity, efficiency, performance, and security function of data centres. With the increasing workload of data centres, the power consumption is also increasing rapidly. Therefore, optimised power management for cooling system and power distribution in data centres is an extremely rewarding research area, especially for cooling system. This paper is an overview of the evolution of data centre design, mechanical and electrical infrastructure of data centre, standards and compliance of different redundancy level of data centre, comparison of traditional data centre and modern modular data centre, as well as flexibility and scalability of modern data centre. In addition, several current challenges and future work in the data centre modular system are described.
