Announcing the Reveal of the EOC² Micro Data in Austin, Texas!


Easter-Owens announces the availability of containerized micro data centers in 4 and 10 rack configurations using 20' long and 40' long ISO compatible shipping containers. With all the functionality of an ISO shipping container and none of the wear, rust, chemicals and associated logistical and permitting challenges, the Easter-Owens Custom Container (EOC²) is built from the bottom up, using our proven manufacturing techniques that include traceable and code-compliant materials. That means there are no pesticide-treated wood floors and no lead paint testing, thus ensuring code-compliance.

Easter Owens will be attending the Edge Global Congress Conference in Austin November 5-6, 2019. On those two days Easter-Owens is also offering a preview and official rollout of the EOC2 Micro Data Center to all interested parties, including conference attendees.

Using Modular Server Enclosures to Recover Stranded Power

By Hector Diaz on 6.27.2019 Mission Critical


Let’s start with a short review of what stranded power is and what is its cause. Stranded power is running out of room in your data center server hall (also referred to as “white space”) before you run out of installed UPS capacity.

Invariably the culprit is over-optimistic projections for power densities (expressed in kW/rack) in a data center’s design phase. If a 2 MW data center is designed to house racks with an average power density of 8 kW/rack it would be designed to house 250 racks. If those racks actually average a power consumption of 5 kW/rack, by the time you fill all available space you will be using 1.25 MW of power and cooling. You have thus stranded 0.75 MW of power. At an average construction cost of $12M/MW, you have stranded $9M worth of power and cooling infrastructure. Needless to say, that is a poor use of corporate capital.

The Importance of Finding a One-stop Shop for PDCs & Modular Fabrication


In the ever-changing manufacturing industry, finding PDCs and equipment of quality at a lower cost is not an easy task. Strict competition and stringent regulations also heighten the need for quality and efficiency, fast making modular fabrication an industry standard. The one-stop-shop solves many of the problems of higher costs and continuity of quality. Using multiple companies for one build can be overwhelming, complicated, and can compromise the overall quality.

At Easter-Owens, a trusted fabrication and electrical solutions manufacturer for over 60 years, the priority is creating efficiencies in equipment for your specific industry’s operations.
