Rackable, a leading provider of servers and storage products for large-scale data centers, today announced the availability of the Rackable Systems CloudRack(TM), a new, highly-efficient enclosure that includes one-of-a-kind rack and server designs. CloudRack's innovative new design provides one of the industry's most optimized compute and storage densities to date. Available in some of the widest ranges of configurability options on the market today, CloudRack can help cloud computing environments to scale cost effectively.
"Rackable Systems continues to focus on data center density and efficiency, while offering our customers the widest possible set of configurations that fit their specific needs," said Mark Barrenechea, president and CEO of Rackable Systems. "The Rackable Systems CloudRack sets a new standard for density and configurability for cloud computing. In a 44U cabinet configuration, it can support up to 44 trays, 704 cores and 352 TBs of storage."
CloudRack remains true to the company's vision of providing the most Eco-Logical(TM) and economical solution to customers. The product's ultra-efficient server "tray" design eliminates unnecessary parts, and instead focuses on delivering increased compute and storage densities as compared to other cloud solutions on the market. Its "rack-centric" design, with common cooling infrastructure at the cabinet level instead of within each server, increases overall reliability and power efficiency. These design elements provide greater access to key components, thereby lowering both data center service and energy costs.
