Introducing the HP POD 20ce

HP POD 20ce

It's time to rethink the data center... Again. Introducing the HP POD 20ce, the newest members of our POD family. These PODs were designed specifically for EMEA enterprises, with deployment in as little as 8 weeks, for about half the cost, using less than half the energy of traditional data centers.


The HP POD 20ce offers 8 x 46U racks of IT capacity, with easy access, and up to 2N redundancy. Corresponding power and cooling modules help provide a power usage effectiveness (PUE) as low as 1.08 to create a turnkey, ultra-efficient solution. With HP PODs optimized specifically for your environment, you can do more with less, quickly and cost-effectively scaling to meet demands.


HP's portfolio of Performance Optimized Datacenters (PODs) can expand data center capacity faster at a fraction of the cost with near-perfect energy efficiency when compared to traditional data centers. Performance and enterprise PODs are available in 20' and 40', along with the HP EcoPOD 240a, one of the most efficient data centers in the world. See the brochure PDF 465 KB.
