ADDC (Arnouse Digital Devices Corp.) announced it has built and patented a data center the size of a carry-on piece of luggage. The company calls its new computing platform the Mobyl Data Center. The first version of the platform, the MDC22, holds a remarkable 22 x86 servers and weighs less than 50 pounds.
ADDC says its new MDC22 is a completely mobile data center that makes use of another of the company’s inventions, a credit-card sized computer called the BioDigitalPC. The company says each BioDigitalPC is an x86 computer that can hold up to 8GB of memory and 128GB of hard drive storage. The MDCC can scale up to 22 quad-core BioDigitalPCs for a max of 88 computing cores. The mobile data center also can be provisioned with up to 32TB of SSD storage.
The company says it is targeting the Mobyl Data Center at the military and government, but also says the computing platform could have applications for large enterprises.
