Cloucrack C2

Cool, Clean and Efficient

CloudRack C2 delivers extreme densities with break through energy efficiency for cluster computing in a unified cabinet design where power and cooling is centralized at the rack level. Its Eco-Logical™ design uses fan-less and cover-less 1U server trays, assuring maximum power usage, cooling efficiency, and staggering server densities with up to 1824 cores per cabinet.

Ideal for Scale-Out Deployments
CloudRack C2 is the ideal choice for data centers looking to maximize server density while cutting operational costs. By leveraging three-phase input power, CloudRack C2 delivers dramatic bottom-line savings by eliminating stranded power (a data center’s power capacity which is paid for, but ultimately unused)
