IT trucks and IT trailers for IBM
This is the latest in a series of IT trucks and trailers produced during the past 20 years for the Business Recovery division of IBM.
Cosby Suppliers have provided business recovery IT trucks and trailers to IBM for more than 20 years. The trailers provide business continuity in the event of a hardware failure, or due to external circumstances such as fire or flood. IBM provides a guaranteed response time to attend site, so quality and reliability are essential.
IT trucks and trailers are fitted out in a variety of formats – some provide temporary office space and others are fully loaded with wheeled racks of servers and data recovery systems. Most feature extensive air conditioning, including several that blow into false floor voids as well as on board generators and UPS systems. Each trailer requires careful planning and design to help IBM cover as many scenarios and client circumstances as possible. Between call outs the trailers attend customer sites for testing purposes.
Rack mounted equipment is loaded via a tail lift for each call out and carefully secured for transport.
Business recovery trailers typically feature pod or gullwing body expansions to create some workspace.
With reliability such a key issue, these trailers are placed on long term service plans to ensure all functions are properly maintained as well as keeping test certificates fully up to date.
