Modular data centers: to whom, why and how?

The long-standing need of many companies in the universal and autonomous data processing unit have come true. The micro-modular data center is a computing platform consisting of several racks with IT equipment, as well as cooling modules, power supplies, cables and a monitoring system. In fact, the only thing that is necessary to start work of such DC is a connection to the power and to the Internet.

To whom?
The possibility and need for such mini DCs has come about thanks to the increasing density of data and computing power, as well as the need for computing power on objects “cut off from the world”. This solution is most popular and demanded by:

- oil and gas companies
- military industry
- public sector
- communication operators
- research institutes.

What for?
With the use of IoT, there is a struggle to reduce transmission delays and response times between equipment, so companies are looking for local data storage and processing solutions to maximize the effect of implementing IoT. Telecommunications companies and content distributors are seeking to more effectively deploy and manage solutions for peripheral computing in response to the demand for digital services.

There are many solutions on the market. You can put 1 or more to create a cluster or for a simple backup system. It is also proposed to combine the modules themselves. The housing of the micro-modular data center is inside its own shell (encapsulated and with a closed loop), however, in its functionality it is not inferior to the standard in the understanding of the inhabitants of data centers. Therefore, it is not surprising that this technology can help in solving the problem of deploying portable IT capacities.
