A micro-mobile data center is a small, portable data center system designed to resolve or share the workloads of the conventional data centers. Micro-mobile data centers come with small set of servers and virtual machines as compared to the traditional data centers. Micro-mobile data centersprovide secure and fast access to data and compute resources. These are even enhanced with in-built cooling systems, security systems, associated management tools, fire protection and uninterrupted power supplies (UPS). Thus, micro-mobile data centers offer ease of installation, simplicity in use and cost effectiveness. These are suitable for use in remote locations, disaster prone areasand even for temporary deployments. In terms of rack size micro-mobile data centers are classified as 5-25 rack units (RU), 26-50 RU and more than 50 RU. Various end-users of micro-mobile data centers includegovernment, telecom and IT, healthcare, oil and gas, smart cities, retail, education, energy, banking and others. On the basis of end-user micro-mobile data centers can be segmented into small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises.
Adoption of cloud computing and cloud-based services by enterprises has been growing incrementally over the past few years. Increasing investments into cloud infrastructure has resulted in greater focus on cost-effectiveness and low power consumption. Today, high growth in data center traffic has increased focus on cloud more than ever before.Growing demand from cloud services is a key factor driving the growth of micro-mobile data centers. Micro-mobile data centers help in reducing latency between the cloud and devices, which improves the performance of the cloud services. Along with this,micro-mobile data centersare highly energy efficient and portable, which makes them much superior to use in comparison to the conventional data centers. Also, with increasing digital traffic due to services such as Internet of Things (IoT), micro-mobile data.
