Container computing road show

Enterprise Control Systems announced this week that they are taking their (compute) trailer to the open road as part of the 2010 Containerized Data Center Road Show Tour

Enterprise Control Systems announced today the schedule for their 2010 Containerized Data Center Road Show Tour that will showcase a truly vendor neutral containerized data center.  The event, which will stop at major cities throughout the Western United States, will strive to show data center operators how they can improve energy efficiencies over traditional data center designs by deploying containerized data centers.

The event will include a tour of an actual containerized data center and will include informative sessions on the importance of Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and ways to improve overall PUE. PUE is a metric used to determine the energy efficiency of a data center. PUE is determined by dividing the amount of power entering a data center by the power used to run the computer infrastructure within it. PUE is therefore expressed as a ratio, with overall efficiency improving as the quotient decreases toward 1. PUE was created by members of the Green Grid, an industry group focused on data center energy efficiency.

The tour will stop in CA, CO, OR, and WA. For more info, hit the event web site.
