White Sand Missile Range – High-Density Data Center Consolidation
U.S. Military Department in need of High-Density Data Center
Challenges: White Sands Missile Range needed to build a data center to support high-density Cisco UCS and EMC without upgrading or modifying legacy traditional raised floor. They were planning to move in the next 24 months and wanted to go GREEN at the same time.
Solution: Deploying 2 Raser DX with pre-installed IT equipment allowed WSMR to deploy a GREEN data center in under 8 weeks. Due to the high density IT equipment, WSMR was able to install more computing capacity in 2 racks than ten racks in the previous environment.
Benefits: Rapid deployment; $900,000 in capital savings versus retrofitting current data center; scalability; space savings and the ability to relocate the data center to a new location as planned.
