Cisco enters the POD marketplace

Cisco announced last week it enters the portable containerized data center market with a fully configured data center solution in a purposed- built 40 foot shell. It includes 16 data center racks each supporting 25KW of power.

The Cisco containers have a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.05 to 1.30, where typical datacenters are in the 1.6 to 2.0 rate. J

ust a reminder, the PUE, which actually corresponds to the ratio of the total data center consumption and the consumption of the actual equipment, of HP’s Wynyard (UK) datacenter is 1.19.

See feedback from InformationWeek, Ubergizmo, PCWorld, eWeek and Network World.

Also HP has been in this market for quite a while and even has POD-Works, a POD manufacturing facility.
