Portable Containerized Data Center

The Portable Data Center 20′ Containerization has many possibilities ranging from quick deployment geographically to remote unserviceable regions, in the event of disaster on a regional, city, county, complex or site specific impact. This container can be up and operational with the support of two additional containers – energy and fuel.

In the case of remote aid globally (FEMA, UN, UNICEF, Embassies, Disaster Relief, etc…), transportable by truck, helicopter, plane or ship.

Isolated business declared disasters with iCloudDRS the impacts to a business are minimized since we could have a on-premise, hybrid-cloud replica and a DR-Cloud replica that would be resilient to any impact. Concerning a on-premise outage or disaster we could transport a replica environment in our 20′ Container on-premise to replace a legacy or Z-IMPACT iStormCloud facility that was impacted with in 24-48 hours. Meantime business operations are running in the hybrid-cloud and still replicated to the DR-Cloud.

Building Resilient Infrastructures

The Portable FEMA Container is a 20’ ISO-standard fully insulated containerized data center incorporating Faraday Cage properties with SAT Datacom and GLINK. Redundant utility interface points for power and cooling systems. Connections to a supporting Power Container.

iStormCloud E7000 Appliances


iStormCloud E7000 Appliances 20′ Container Ecosystem, has an abundance of power (100,800 cores, 5.4 PB of RAM and 2.16 EB Storage). The unit  payload is 13,350 lbs. easily handled by an Osprey helicopter that has a Max Weight of 15,000 lbs., the Power Container contains 2 power sources of equal generation to ~1,728 Kwh – diesel, biomass, solar, fuel cell, etc., both containers are certified as Military FASTRAP.

Our competition to accomplish the same footprint of eighteen (18) E7000 would require tremendous logistics. For example the closest competitor is Dell’s MX7000 and they would require the following payload delivery of 42 containers of compute, 271 containers of power and then there is a cooling requirement… I think you get the point!

To accomplish a comparable payload delivery 157 truckloads or 313 helicopter payloads. It would be a logistical nightmare and the National Guard Center may be too small to accommodate this deployment.

Example: FEMA Response to National Guard Centers

Recovery from a natural disaster, timing is critical and today the cell and internet critical components of out infrastructure are crumpled and do not recovery for months.

Z-IMPACT can deploy 2 containers (Compute & Cooling and Power) and the initial fuel necessary to operate the ecosystem) via US Army Corps of Engineers by helicopter into any secured National Guard Center located in an affected area bringing communication, critical computing and internet online within a few hours of deployment. Z-IMPACT can deliver in a single modular 20’ container,  eighteen (18), iStormCloud E7000 Ecosystems units.

We can expand this in a modular data center with stacked units that comprise of a single iStormCloud E7000 Vault (30 units), in a 40’ container. These become building blocks like Legos in an existing modular mega data center… compressing the footprint and condensing current data center overall requirements.

Allowing the digital infrastructure architecture not to be based upon current topologies, but will be global in scale, driven by business requirements from Infrastructure and Operations leaders. It will allow Z-IMPACT to become a cloud provider, quickly becoming the, “backbone to the cloud” and allow focus on true rapid deployment of business services and deploying workloads for the right reasons, to the right locations at the right price.
