HP EcoPOD Data Center, Ultra-Efficient, Self-Contained and Modular

The HP POD 240a, nicknamed the EcoPOD, is an ultra-efficient and self-contained data center that uses only a fraction of the energy that a traditional ‘brick-and-mortar’ data center uses, while still being able achieve 10 times more information technology (IT) capacity.

The efficiency of the EcoPOD comes down to it’s design, fully utilizing the resources available and not powering the unused.

“A typical brick-and-mortar data center is often overprovisioned and underutilized, powering 100% of its resources, while using far less. The EcoPOD’s modular design, by contrast, helps enterprises quickly and efficiently expand data center capacity. The EcoPOD has the capacity for 44 industry-standard racks, up to 4,400 servers, and 44 kilowatt per 50U rack—the equivalent of just less than 9,000 square feet of traditional data center IT in a 900-square-foot package.”
