The Integrated All-in-one ‘Plug & Play’ Solution

  • Way to get power to each device
  • Reliable way of keeping everything cool
  • Smart enclosure to house it all in with
  • Great security

And it blends seamlessly into any occupied workspace. Instead of taking up valuable office space, the portable server case can roll straight into the open office.

Expanding is no problem: bring your servers with you

What is even better is Powerhive makes moving premises easy, just bring your server equipment with you! It is the portable solution for retail IT, doctor’s surgeries, dental practices, bank branch IT or any business that may have more than one branch or might need to expand.

Hanley Energy designs, implements and manages the agile infrastructure helping clients to enhance their operations, mitigate risk and enable business strategy.

Fast and easy set up

Powerhive arrives fully assembled with an integrated IT rack power distribution unit (PDU) for fast and easy deployment. Roll it in to the open office, put your equipment inside, plug it in and close the doors.

Toolless Rack Mounting Capabilities

Server cases do not require additional tools to mount into, which allows the users to quickly and easily mount units in the rear of the enclosure.
