Cisco Rolls Out Its Data Center Containers

Monday May 2nd 2011 by Staff

The networking giant jumps into the modular data center market.

Data Center Knowledge: Cisco has announced the launch of the Cisco Containerized Data Center, a modular data center unit designed for energy efficiency and fast deployment. The 40-foot units feature a water cooling system and can house up to 16 cabinets with 44 rack units each.

The reason why a lot of our customers are moving to a modular approach is timing,” said Cisco's Keith Siracuse. ” It’s quick, and it provides energy efficiency, and the PUE of about 1.25 is attractive. The cost of building a new data center is very expensive, and the process can take as much as two years. We wanted to have a modular approach moving forward.”
