Edge data centres for every industry

The advantages of micro data centres are well-proven in virtually every industry. Data storage demands combined with a small footprint that can be placed in any location are successfully being used in a wide variety of cases.

Content Delivery

Video streaming, static content, social media are prime examples of where portable data centre storage ensures seamless data transference. Latency needs to be reduced to guarantee a seamless experience for users who expect high quality content on the go.

IoT

Our ever-increasing reliance on these devices generates enormous levels of data - that is only set to increase. From drones to self-driving cars, smart speakers to CCTV, the need for data to be stored close to the generation point allows for the best real time operation.

5G

The rollout of the technology requires multiple data storage stations to address the limited travel distances of the millimetre and microwaves. Micro data centres are playing a key role in building the infrastructure for global and-to-end connectivity.

Hybrid cloud architecture

As AI and machine learning increases, so does the need for data transfer with minimal latency. A combination of micro data centre and cloud storage enables companies to take advantage of portable centre technology along with cloud benefits.
