Toshiba's space-saving Modular Data Center Business

By - November 29, 2010 2 Pictures
Toshiba has just completed the installation of a demonstration modular data center on the outskirts of Tokyo, signaling its entry into the emerging market.

In addition to reducing costs, Toshiba claims that its solution also requires less power to operate. Read More
