Video: Rackable ICE Cube Container

Add Your Comments

This video features a brief tour of ICE Cube, the high-density data center inside a shipping container from Rackable Systems (RACK). Conor Malone, Director of Data Center Solutions for Rackable, provides a look inside the container and talks about the ICE Cube’s features and how early customers are using the units. There’s a lot of airflow from the cooling inside the unit, which creates some residual noise on the audio. Conor is clearly used to talking over the breeze, which helps. This video runs just over 3 minutes.
