You Can’t Stop Compute, You Can Only Hope to Contain It
Don’t put away the party favors yet.
Cisco a few weeks ago opened a new Data Center in Allen, Texas to fanfare that included media coverage and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Texas Governor Rick Perry.
We’re now opening a Data Center in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The facility features water-cooled cabinets, supports up to 25 kW per rack and has sophisticated monitoring and management tools for controlling power and cooling systems. The Data Center can be configured with different levels of redundancy (up to tier 4), has a calculated PUE below 1.25 and is modular, allowing for rapid expansion.
Oh, and it’s tucked into a 40 ft. long box that can be delivered to your doorstep. That’s right, Cisco’s newest server environment is a containerized Data Center.
A formal grand-opening isn’t scheduled until August when an in-building Data Center opens its doors on the Research Triangle Park campus as well. But you can watch the video below for a sneak peak at how it was installed as well as catch further discussion about Data Center container capabilities.
