Here are a couple of links that provide a closer look at two of the leading data center container products. Digi.no has a video tour of IBM’s Portable Modular Data Center. The introduction is in Norwegian, but the tour by IBM’s Brian Canney is in English.  The video features a tour of a 20-foot container, but IBM also offers 40-foot and 53-foot versions of the container.  This video runs about 13 minutes.

Here’s more on the FOREST container (which also comes in 20-footand 40-foot versions) and some deployment options.
