The HP POD 240a converged data center is a new class of HP Performance Optimized Data Centers (PODs) that can be deployed faster than any competitive offering-just 12 weeks -and at a quarter of the cost when compared to a traditional brick-and-mortar data center. Extending HP’s leadership in modular data centers, the HP POD 240a, also referred to as the “HP EcoPOD,” uses 95 percent less facilities energy.

Annual facilities energy savings can be reduced by up to 95 percent with a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) as low as 1.05, compared to a PUE of 2.0 for traditional data centers.
