Video: Dell’s Latest Modular Data Center

We’ve recently noted several installations in Boulder, Colorado using modular data centers (MDCs) from Dell, including one powering Bing Maps and another creating a supercomputer for the University of Colorado at Boulder. What’s inside the latest edition of Dell’s constantly evolving modular design? In this video, Ty Schmitt and Mark Bailey from the Dell Data Center Solutions (DCS) team provide a tour of one of the new Dell Modular Data Centers. They discuss the various modules that make up the MDC, the three cooling methods available to MDC users, and how the outside temperature dictates which mode is used. This video runs 5 minutes.
