After years of research, design, and testing, HP has unveiled the world’s most efficient modular data center.
Using HP Converged Infrastructure
, the turnkey solution and services provides an answer to aging infrastructure, limited space, and shrinking budgets.
Whether for data center expansion, new or temporary capacity, remote locations, or disaster recovery, the EdoPOD is agile and scalable. Designed to meet increasing data center capacity demands, it provides a traditional data center service model while housing up to 44 industry standard racks of IT equipment and more than 4,400 servers in 900 sq ft.
“We tried to make no compromises,” said HP’s Wade Vinson, aka The PODfather. “Accessible aisles with multiple power feeds that can be used any way the customer wants. It’s a 10,000sq ft data center and doing it in one-tenth the space. There really isn’t anything else like it out there today.”
The Environmental Control System provides comprehensive management, automation and integration with remote access. It is simple, programmable, and extensible to existing building control systems.
By automatically adjusting cooling methods – blending outside air and the 34 63Kw air conditioners – customers can intelligently optimize energy savings based on IT load, climate, and policy. As a result, HP claims energy use can be reduced 95 percent of that used by a traditional facility.
“It’ll run in temperatures from 10 degrees C to 35 degrees C,” Mr Vinson said. “PUE is as low as 1.05
. Nobody can deliver this speed, this cost, this energy efficiency, this capacity. We’ve deployed this in Africa, Siberia... around the world.”
