ST. LOUIS and TAMPA – August 22, 2011 – World Wide Technology, Inc.(WWT), a market-leading systems integrator that provides innovative technology and supply chain solutions, today announced the launch of its FAST Mobile Data Center (MDC). Engineered for extreme portability, these self-contained units feature integrated computing, storage, networking, power and cooling that offer a powerful, low-cost alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar data centers.  WWT’sMDC will be on display this week at the LandWarNetconference in Tampa from August 23-25.

The MDC is part of WWT’sFlexible, Adaptable, Solutions and Technology (FAST) portfolio that includes half rack self-contained units, containerized solutions ranging from 10’ to 53’ and modular buildings.  The portfolio addresses nearly any IT requirement, from emergency response in harsh deployments (exploration, gas, oil and military) and business continuity planning, to command-and-control centers and even retrofit environments where architectural confines do not allow for expansion or upgrades to existing infrastructure.

On display at LandWarNet will be the MIL-STD FAST MDC-20. The FAST MDC-20 has been purpose built to address austere environments and portability meeting MIL-STD-810G requirements for shock and vibration.  The unit will be located on the Tampa Convention Center’s front drive and will be open for tours during regular show hours.  WWT will also be exhibiting at LandWarNet in booth number 1705.

“We have taken mobility to another level with the introduction of the FAST MDC,” said Chris Black, director, federal solutions engineering at World Wide Technology.  “The autonomous units can be deployed quickly via truck, rail, air or sea and bring true mobility to fully functional and secure data centers.”
