Dell Inc. is launching a newtactical mobile data center for government and military personnel to deploy at any location, the company announced Tuesday.
According to the company, users will install information technology infrastructure to locations that require a strong and durable IT foundation.
The system is encased in a weather-proof ISU-96 container, which can be delivered through fixed-wing airframes or commercial aircraft.
Joe Ayers, vice president and general manager of Dell’s federal business, said IT infrastructure is needed in combat outposts or in areas following a natural disaster.
Upon arrival, users immediately set up the system to run on both land and generator power sources and has cables for power, cooling, and data.
Dell designed the system to function in many climate conditions with varying temperatures, the company said.
It is also an extension for existing data centers, a recovery site for disaster recovery services and used to setup a new data center in remote areas.
The Solution is composed of an IT Pack and a AC/UPS Pack.
Both are housed in a ISU-96 container and provide servers, storage, a cooling system, battery backup and data connections.
George Newstrom, general manager of defense and national security, recently spoke to ExecutiveBiz on the role commercial-off-the-shelf technology will play in the federal arena.
