ICI -- Showing Off Portable Test-Dev Data Center

Brad Malz, CTO of ICI, said his company's biggest draw at its EMC World booth was the new vCcube, or Virtual Cloud Cube, which he characterized as a "cloud in a box."

The vCcube comes in a portable custom case, and it is configured with 4-core or 6-core Intel processors, up to 256 GBs of memory, SSDs and an SATA hard drive, and several caching and connectivity options, making it suitable as a testing and development platform for cloud computing and virtual desktop infrastructures.

ICI originally designed it to demonstrate its capabilities to customers but is now selling it to other VARs and even to EMC and VMware, Malz said.
