FREMONT, Calif. -- Rackable Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:RACK), a leading provider of Eco-Logical servers and storage products for medium- to large-scale data centers, today announced the immediate availability of CloudRack™ C2, a unified cabinet which delivers dramatic bottom-line savings to data centers by assuring maximum power and cooling efficiency. CloudRack C2 provides staggering server densities with up to 1,280 cores per cabinet and 99 percent energy efficiencies.

Innovative Power Distribution

CloudRack C2 is the first of many Rackable products to utilize Power XE™ - a cabinet-level power distribution technology designed to:

  • Virtually eliminate the data center “stranded power” problem (a data center’s power capacity which is paid for, but ultimately unused) and provides nearly perfect phase balancing

  • Significantly improve power delivery efficiency by converting incoming AC power to 99 percent efficient 12V DC power via hot-pluggable, N+1 redundant rectifiers

  • Eliminate server-level power supplies and cooling fans for improved reliability

  • Dramatic Thermal Efficiency
