    Server Room in Shipping container

    Hello,

    Has anyone built or had commissioned a quick delivery server room?

    For example locating the server room within a shipping container? I know companies such as http://www.epi-rddc.com/ advertise solutions, for which I am getting a quote for.

    If you have any similar quick build server room projects you have completed I would be interested to hear from you.

    Thanks


    Ben

    I only know of EPI. We've partnered with them in the past a few times. If you send me over what you want i might be able to use our discount to get you a better price.

    Let me know

    HP do them - called the HP POD

    You would probably need to find a big HP reseller to get it to happen though.

    They look soooo cool

    They look soooooo cool! I saw one posted outside the HP building in Bracknell once - it did just look like a normal shipping container with big letters HP POD outside.

    Either way I think someone is about to make a whole shead load of money

    Eeer Russ ours is a 12U rack case on wheels not a shipping container! I'd hate to try and get a shipping container on a Pendalino its fun enough getting that on with your own bags for a week at BETT without trying to haul on a 20ft shipping container

    It would be fun to see folk try. In fact ... is that why @Ric_ escaped down south?

    A cheaper alternative...



    This is a Trolley Attached Random Datacentre of Inexpensive Servers (a.k.a. vT.A.R.D.I.S.) which is a 10-node ESXi cluster on a B&Q trolley.

    I vote for @GrumbleDook to come up north to Preston to help get all the BETT kit to London this year then seen as @Ric_ has escaped down south.....
