Rackable Systems has announced a portable datacenter that can be easily moved around and plugged into a regular wall outlet, but still is fully contained with all the hardware needed for a mini-datacenter.

The MobiRack server, released yesterday, can hold from five to 16U worth of hardware. Rackable’s rack mounted computers are half-depth compared to other rack-mounted servers, making them only 15.5 inches deep.

The enclosures offer a variety of configurations, starting with a choice of Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) and AMD (NYSE: AMD) processors. With the 16U system, it’s possible to hold eight 2U servers with a dual socket Xeon or Opteron processor and five 3.5-inch or 10 2.5-inch drives for up to 40TB of storage.
All of the enclosures support AC power supplies and the larger configurations also support DC power infrastructures, including battery backups and rectifiers.

The MobiRack is entirely self-contained, with full port access on each server in the front of the unit instead of the back, so it can be flushed against a wall. It combines servers, storage, networking, UPS and DC power distribution in one unit.
