Instant Data Centers Enables Edge Computing
Instant Data Centers uses its patented technology to build rack level, closed loop all-in-one enclosures to protect and place your IT equipment just about anywhere. Instant Data Centers is Edge Infrastructure.
Edge Box (Shield)
12u Rack Enclosure with 2.5kW of Patented Cooling
ADVANTAGES Easily Moved Compact, Fits Anywhere Protection from Dust, Water, Tampering Reduce Noise Level Reduce overall operating expenses Stackable
The Edge Box is a 12U, NEMA 12, 4, 4x (IP55,65&66) Micro Data Center that provides from 1.4 kW to 4.5 kW (4700BTU to 15,300BTU) of cooling directly to the equipment. The sturdy rack enclosure is completely sealed protecting valuable server equipment, routers, switches, and networking from dust, dirt, debris, and tampering. The compact Edge Box is suitable for clients needing IT in areas where equipment requires added levels of protection such as manufacturing facilities, military, research institutions, forensics and film & production industries. Office space is popular for these enclosures. No longer do you need to build out a room specifically for a low quantity of high-capacity servers. Everything you need is included and can be wheeled in with ease. No construction event, no tenant improvement and when you’re done with that space, unplug it and move it.

Instant Edge (Raser DX)
44u 2.5kW to 12kW of Closed Loop Cooling
Up to 12kW 42,000 BTU of closed loop cooling directly to the equipment. NEMA 12, 4 & 4x (IP55, 65&66). These enclosures can fully replace the data center building. Add single units or groups of units as requirements increase, providing a flexible, scalable and cost-effective IT solution.
The Instant Edge allows you to add a full rack of IT equipment almost anywhere you need it. Included onboard is up to 12kW of closed-loop AC cooling. By definition, closed loop means no particulates are getting into your cabinet. You can place these in caustic and dusty environments with no harm to your IT gear. Bring your IT equipment closer to your projects. This Micro Data Center allows you to expand the edge of your infrastructure and put your IT where it’s useful.
Questions? We Have Answers.
We outfit IT Closets, Telecom Shelters and pretty much anything in a 19” footprint. Our enclosures are outdoor rated, NEMA 4 IP66 as well as NEMA 4x. Being ruggedized as well as closed-loop air flow which seals the internal air from external dust and particulates allows these units to be placed just about anywhere.
The edge becomes anywhere you can get power and a flat piece of ground. We customize just about ever enclosure, so questions are an everyday thing. We suggest you contact us sooner than later and we can help you plan.

Why Choose Instant Data Centers?
Patented Closed-Loop Cooling
All of the Instant Data Centers product line utilize closed-loop cooling capabilities.
With a closed-loop solution, air is being circulated in the cabinet using a zero bypass airflow. Cold air is pushed into the cold air plenum in front of the equipment in the rack and has nowhere else it can go but through the equipment. In the rear, the air that has just passed through the equipment goes into a sealed hot air plenum behind the equipment and back into the return of the cooling solution. The second air loop (outer loop), removes the heat from the coils that the return air passes over.
The two air loops in the closed-loop system, there is no air exchanged between them. No outside air is pulled in for cooling. Therefore, there are no filters that need to be dealt with regularly, and a dust free environment inside is maintained.
Closed-loop air flow allows you to place our data center solutions in any space, regardless of air quality.
Mission Critical Venting (MCV)
Mission Critical Venting provides emergency ventilation for a cabinet-level solution housing computing / communications equipment, UPS solutions., or anything requiring ventilation.
Used in the Instant Data Centers product line, the MCV provides redundancy to cooling in the event of a loss of cooling due to equipment failure or total power loss. Power comes from the same UPS the equipment is using, MCV will trigger on temperature spike.
Sealed mechanical louvers on the front door and chimney open, high powered fans turn on, and the enclosure remains ventilated using ambient outside air, avoiding any heat buildup while a graceful shutdown will is performed, or while the generator starts up in the background.
MCV can also provide “free cooling” in cold climates or during the winter months. When temperatures are favorable, the AC can be turned off, and MCV manually activated to take advantage of the cold air outside. If the enclosure is indoors and there is access to an external wall, ducting can be attached to bring air into the cabinet from outside as well.
Shock and Vibration Isolation
Shock and vibration protection is part of every one of the Instant Data Centers product lines.
These protect the sensitive equipment from shock and vibration while being moved as well as from vibrations commonly experienced with the land, water, and air travel.
Provides the ability to move the rack enclosure with the equipment in it. Perfect for companies in leased office space. When your lease is up, and it’s time to move, take your data center with you without having to take everything out of the rack before moving.
Shock & Vibration Isolation in all MMDC units. The MMDC is designed from the ground up to enable any rack mounted data centers gear mounting inside to become mobile and portable.
- Dropship equipment cabled and ready to operate
- Transform complex digital infrastructure construction project into simplified shipping and receiving event
- Deliver HPC/Private Cloud systems in proximity to the client or project.
- Proximity delivery of compute resources reduce latency and eliminate network bottlenecks and bandwidth costs.
- Forklift upgrade data centers, cellular sites, and IT closets
- Transport, import and export massive amounts from one location to the next
Active Fire Supression
As an option available for all of Instant Data Centers product lines, we can provide a Firetrace Active Fire Suppression solution. This solution is designed for rack level fire suppression, and utilizes a NOVEC 1230 extinguishing solution that is non-conductive/dielectric, and has no effect on the equipment in the enclosure.
The Firetrace solution consists of a bottle housing the NOVEC 1230, and two options for discharge, Direct (DLP) or Indirect (ILP). DLP (Direct) has a special tubing that comes out of the bottle and is routed and attached directly to the power supplies behind all of the equipment. If a power supply caught fire or started smoldering, it would melt the tube nearest to it, creating a nozzle in the tube, delivering the NOVEC 1230 directly to the fire source, immediately extinguishing the fire.
ILP (Indirect) has the same special tubing routed behind the power supplies, but it is just pressurized. Another tube comes out of the bottle and ends with a nozzle that can be located above the rack inside. In the event of a fire, the first tubing melts, releasing the pressure activated switch, and pushing the NOVEC 1230 out the nozzle.
Being a non-conductive fluid, the rest of the equipment in the rack continue to run with no problems. Open the door to the cabinet, and the NOVEC 1230 evaporates and leaves no mess behind.
Fire Marshall Approved nationally.
NOVEC 1230 is completely safe and depletes from the atmosphere quickly.
Not only does the solution isolate the fire to the actual component, without damaging anything else in the rack, it also isolates it to the cabinet, negating the risk of setting off the building sprinklers which could be detrimental in a standard, ambient cooled data center.
