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.

Top 3 Features of Secondary Connection Cabinets



Buildings that contain specialized equipment, such as welding machinery or large-scale baking appliances, require external power connection points that allow multiple service feeds. This is because the different devices within the building have different voltage ratings and would, therefore, need separate lines right from the point of connection to the external power source. Secondary connection cabinets are expertly designed to provide a safe enclosure for splicing and distribution of power within such facilities. Listed below are various features that make these cabinets particularly suited for the task.
