Diversified industrial manufacturer, Eaton Corp., is providing power management support for IBM’s Portable Modular Data Centre (PMDC).

“IBM’s PMDC is part of our strategy to deliver a cost-effective and
flexible family of modular data centre solutions to businesses facing
significant capital and operational costs,” said Steve Sams, IBM vice
president, global site and facilities services.

In 2007, IBM launched Project Big Green and committed $1 billion per
year to deliver technologies that help clients increase the level of
energy efficiency in their data centres. IBM introduced the PMDC as
part of the second phase of Project Big Green to drive modular data
centre design solutions to allow clients to pay as they grow, reducing
capital and operating costs.

IBM will showcase some of Eaton’s UPSs and electrical solutions as part
of its PMDC demonstration unit during the Gartner 28th Data Centre
Conference in Las Vegas.
