- Starting price of $99,000;
- Elimination of costly and complex connections.
“By offering a standard array of small, medium and large configure-to-order data center designs, customers benefit from a supply chain that will allow them to quickly expand as their business needs grow, regardless of scale,” said Patrick Yantz, senior director of Modular Data Center Engineering at SGI. “We now have three targeted design solutions backed by our global delivery of full service standard or design-to-order modular data centers.”
The standard ICE Cube line is the densest and most flexible family of ISO container-based MDCs on the market today. Available in 20- and 40-ft length containers, these MDCs feature single- or dual-row designs along with universal configurations capable of achieving extreme density with PUE ratios of less than 1.12, utilizing a unique chilled-water technology that reduces cooling costs by as much as 80 percent over traditional data centers. These MDCs are the perfect choice for commercial, industrial and government applications where mobility is of prime concern.
SGI offers the following ICE Cube Air standard and ISO container-based model configurations. These highly customizable designs accommodate either fixed or roll-in racks and support third-party server and storage hardware.
New data centers are not like the old ones and organizations are making a break with the past, as evidenced by the rise of modular data centers,” said David Cappuccio, chief of infrastructure research at Gartner. “With organizations looking closely at power consumption, efficiency and more recently rapid scalability to satisfy deployment demands, increasing productivity requires innovation in data center cooling and design.”
