IBM’s PMDC provides a fully functional data center in a shipping container with a complete physical infrastructure including power and cooling systems and remote monitoring. By integrating APC InfraStruxure products into the container, it builds on the global alliance between APC and IBM announced in 2006 when APC was selected as a key data center physical infrastructure provider to IBM’s Scalable Modular Data Center (SMDC), and later when APC solutions were chosen as the foundation for the IBM High Density Zone (HDZ) solution, which allows customers to deploy a high density environment rapidly within an existing data center.
