Making Edge Easy - Micro Data Centres for Mining
Clever micro data centre solutions for the mining industry
The mining industry is relying more and more on technology to operate safe and effective mine sites. Traditional mines are quickly transforming into Smart Mines that use information, autonomy, and technology to enhance safety, reduce operational costs, keep better track of employees and equipment, improve maintenance and boost productivity.
It’s easy to see the benefits of adopting new technologies to run efficient mine sites. However, new technology generates large amounts of data that needs to be stored safely and processed quickly and this is often a challenge in remote and hard to reach mine sites with limited infrastructure and personnel.
How edge computing and micro data centres enable smart mines
With mining companies being our early adopters, we were able to mould, develop and optimise our micro data centres to the highest standards of health and safety, certifications, reliability and cyber-security. Edge computing and micro data centres allow mining companies to run efficient, productive and safe mining operations. Micro data centres are the perfect solutions for Smart Mines as they solve many Edge computing challenges:
