Making Edge Easy

How micro data centres are giving healthcare the Edge

A data epidemic

 

Data generation within the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries is at an unprecedented high. A 2020 survey by Dell discovered an astronomical nearly 900% increase in only two years.

This is being driven in many ways. The IoT, AI, indwelling medical devices, robotics … These are just a handful of the applications that are spewing out ever-increasing information that needs to be managed, analysed, stored and shared.

Plus the overarching need for all this data to have impenetrable security.

How is all this data generated?

Let’s consider some of the sources that are responsible for this colossal amount of data:

  • Hospital beds typically have 10-15 connected devices
  • A dramatic increase in wearable healthcare devices
  • Robotics performing intricate operational procedures
  • Indwelling devices (pacemakers, defibrillators, cardiac monitors etc)
  • Data that’s generated with every single patient examination (blood pressure, oxygen saturation, pulse rate, ECG results, etc)
  • Blood tests and other investigatory results

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to where healthcare data is generated. It currently accounts for around 30% of all global data. 

How edge data centres support healthcare

Edge computing and on-site MDCs are playing a huge part in this revolutionary shift within healthcare. The ability to transfer data in real time, without a latency lag or the need to upload to the cloud before it can be analysed and used, is game-changing when it comes to medicine. Our Zella Pro range of micro data centres will solve all your edge computing challenges:

Which industries are driving the need for micro data centres?

The seismic shift towards Edge computing is just one reason that the advantages of Micro Data Centres are set to become pivotal in everyday life.

Life on the Edge - the micro data centre and DCIM relationship

Centralised monitoring and management is the key to successful edge computing - it allows companies to save time and money and ultimately to increase their uptime. 

Why retail needs to buy into the micro data centre revolution

The retail industry has evolved in the past few years, relies more on technology and needs to store vast amounts of data.
