A micro data center is a compact modular data center structured for specified workloads. It consists of all the storage, networking, cooling, power, and other infrastructure necessary for a workload. MDCs bring data processing closer to the end-users and empower enterprises to expand their data center footprint.
Schneider Electric UK offers an exceptional range of micro data centers that can seamlessly fit any environment. The S, C, and R series provide enterprises with different levels of protection from security threats, temperature changes, dust, and moisture. Our self-contained enclosures for IT components simplify edge deployments.
How do Micro Data Centers work?
Micro Data Centers are usually shipped pre-assembled in a server rack. Once received, an IT professional would install any additional equipment and set up the power cables and networks. After this, the MDC can be directly connected to the main power or a new circuit in case of larger installations. Once the initial setup is complete, an IT professional would configure and monitor the equipment. Extensive MDC deployments necessitate configuration management tools as well as enterprise monitoring solutions.
Schneider Electric UK has a trained team of professionals who can help you monitor, service, and manage your micro data center installation.
What are the uses of Micro Data Centers?
