Micro Data Center Helps Simplify Complex Edge Environments

October 19, 2022

We are at an interesting inflection point in the data center industry. To support the vast universe of applications requiring computing, data centers are becoming more and more complex. At the same time, more of this computing is happening at the edge of the network, absent on-site IT support. The challenge for us as providers of data center solutions is to deliver computing capable of performing complex functions in packages that are easy to install, operate and support.

Enter Micro Data Centers.

Our Micro Data Centers are prefabricated modular data centers with integrated IT and network management, and infrastructure equipment configured to meet the needs of the user. These edge data centers can be as small as a single rack or as large as multiple fully integrated racks, rows or aisles, and they can be deployed virtually anywhere in a matter of hours without the need for preexisting power and cooling infrastructure on site.

Micro Data Centers are perfect for any application requiring networking, storage, and computing closer to the user, which in today’s world is, well… everywhere. Supermarkets and other retail environments increasingly rely on on-site computing to streamline point-of-sale interactions, manage inventory, security, and enhance the customer and employee experience.
