Companies like Sungard and a few others have these types of custom rig,
probably a lot more economical for you because you get it when you
need...assuming there are no major disasters during your move...although
I think personally having a mobile datacenter as an alternate site is
probably going to be not worth it and will require a lot more
maintenance with a higher degree of failure-probability than just having
a hot site located more than 300 miles a way or so...of course I don't
know your situation..


Also, AT&T Network Recovery has a lot of these trucks, I've seen them
setup in a simulation before...you could contact them (if you can find
contact info) and ask who produced these rigs for them. Whoever does
touring trailers and blood mobile trailers probably..

You might want to look at companies that outfit trucks/trailers for
remote TV production.
