Rackable Systems, Inc . (NASDAQ:RACK), a leading provider of servers and storage products for large-scale data centers, today announced its participation in Gartner’s 27 th Annual Data Center Conference , December 2 – 5 in Las Vegas. Rackable Systems will highlight its modular data center, the ICE Cube™, and its new C2005 server, designed for greater flexibility and configurability.
“Gartner’s data center conference provides an excellent resource for organizations to discover new solutions and technologies to improve data center functionality and performance,” said George Skaff, vice president of marketing at Rackable Systems. “Rackable Systems will showcase its most innovative data center solutions in the marketplace. We have also just released several new products that will be incredibly attractive to customers seeking a greater degree of flexibility.”
As market demand increases for flexible and energy efficient data center solutions, Rackable Systems answers the call with its ICE Cube, the company’s modular data center environment. The highly configurable ICE Cube is designed to augment or replace traditional data centers of any size. The containerized solution allows IT administrators to quickly and easily deploy a cost-effective and high-performance data center in almost any location. ICE Cube features computing density levels of up to 2,800 servers and up to 7.1 Petabytes of storage in a standard 40′ x 8′ ISO shipping container. Customized and built-to-order, ICE Cube can be deployed with Rackable Systems’ broad range of space-saving, half-depth servers and storage.
Inside the ICE Cube, Rackable Systems will also be displaying a large variety of products that support technology from third party vendors. Early this year, Rackable Systems formed a highly complimentary partnership with NetApp ® that allows them to combine Rackable Systems’ high-performance servers with NetApp’s storage solutions. Rackable Systems has also formed a partnership with IBM that allows the company to offer high-performance BladeCenter servers inside of its ICE Cube. Both NetApp and IBM solutions will be on display inside the ICE Cube.
Attendees at the show will also have a chance to see Rackable Systems’ new C2005 server, which delivers an unparalleled level of flexibility and configurability, while leveraging the company’s popular half-depth design and best-in-class components. Equivalent to an industry-standard 1U rackmount server in density, the C2005’s modular design enables build-to-order, Eco-Logical™ configurations featuring a wide variety of local storage capabilities and the ability to support up to five expansion slots – unheard of at this density level.
In addition to displaying the ICE Cube, outside the exhibit hall, Rackable Systems will also be exhibiting at booth K-3.
