neutral  philgoddard: It sounds like it's modular, but I think the word "cubes" has to be in there somewhere.

Explanation:
The French source does not describe the product's functions using the term "cube confiné". At this point, it merely describes its shape and the fact it is self-contained (the reader would know at this point what is contained in the cube and what a self-contained cube refers to).
Thus, although they refer to a self-contained data center (which, by the way, would include all data center functionalities), the translation for me would have to be very close to the source:
"self-contained cubes" or "confined cubes"
