datacenter container

A self-contained module that includes a series of rack-mounted servers along with its own lighting, air conditioning, humidification and UPS system. Designed to be transported in a shipping container and deployed intact, it enables a complete datacenter to be installed in a fraction of the normal time, and it can redeployed just as easily. Only electrical and network hookup are required. See datacenter in a box.
