FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 17 -- Rackable Systems Inc., a leading provider of servers and storage products for large-scale datacenters, today announced the immediate availability of MobiRack, a new class of datacenter enclosures. MobiRack enclosures allow new levels of datacenter mobility and feature a rugged, light weight plastic case that will protect Rackable Systems half-depth servers in the most challenging environments.
Complimenting Rackable Systems' existing line of superior IT datacenter enclosures, the ultra-durable MobiRack is capable of housing a variety of server solutions with Intel or AMD CPUs, storage and networking equipment. MobiRack can be used as a fully-contained datacenter for initial deployments, expansions and data recovery usage. Bringing IT resources closer to users, the innovative mobile form factor will be indispensable to a diverse set of field applications.
"MobiRack is a self-contained, cabinet-level enclosure that combines servers, storage, networking, UPS and DC power distribution in one unit," said Mark Barrenechea, president and CEO of Rackable Systems. "MobiRack truly frees users from the deployment limitations of fixed 'brick and mortar' datacenters, and is ideal for fast HPC deployment, a small office datacenter, mobile trade shows and events, and in disaster recovery and military environments."
MobiRack supports half-depth servers and storage to offer greater density and lighter weight in a mobile solution. A DC power option will assure operation even in environments with unreliable AC power. Front-facing server access ports provide convenient operation in space constrained environments. MobiRack enclosures offer massive configuration flexibility with more than 30 options for visual, functional and environmental alterations. MobiRack offerings include 5U, 11U, 14U and 16U racks with an impressive array of customizable options including color choices, handle design and air- and water-tight container capabilities. Ideal for harsh environments, the MobiRack is a build-to-order product that meets shock and vibration standards, including those required by the military and the Air Transportation Authority.
"Today's computing isn't always deployed in traditional datacenters. Many high-growth usage models require new levels of mobility and flexibility," said Jason Waxman, General Manager, High Density Computing at Intel. "Rackable Systems' MobiRack, taking advantage of the energy-efficient performance and reliability of Intel Xeon processors, is designed for time-critical emergency and field computing applications that support next-generation datacenters that need to go wherever they're needed."
The MobiRack is available immediately. For more information about specific configurations, visit http://www.rackable.com/mobirack.
