Micro Data Centres
What is a Micro Data Centre?
A Micro Data Centre is a way of deploying the benefits of localised Edge Computing in areas where the facility does not have internal space for a dedicated Data Centre or Computer Room.
Micro Data Centres, also refer to as MDC, come in various formats and sizes.
They can range from being a specially-designed IT rack to a prefabricated Data Centre deploying anything from 5 to 100+ racks. Each MDC provides the power and cooling requirements that the housed IT equipment needs. MDCs provide the functions of a Data Centre and make it easy to deploy services, compute and store data closer to the end-point.
Micro Data Centre Solutions
MDC EDGE Cabinets
EDGE Cabinets provide a Micro Data Centre in a rack, and provide the ideal Edge Computing solution for offices, warehouses and factories.
Where localised computing is required in such areas the use of standard IT racks can expose employees to noise and heat from the IT equipment, or the IT equipment itself not being correctly cooled and exposed to environmental contaminants such as dust.
EDGE MDC cabinets have been designed to meet the demands for localised computing in such areas, and being a rack they can easily be relocated as needs change. The range comprises of air-cooled, air-conditioned or water-cooled models.
