According to the report, the need for data center infrastructure is growing among enterprises worldwide. However, a significant number of SMEs are incapable of making substantial investments in the construction of traditional data center facilities. The establishment of a traditional data center can cost up to $6 million for a 1MW facility. Compared to these facilities, mini data centers are cost-effective, flexible, and scalable.
Technological innovations have led to the emergence of mini data centers that can serve as an alternative to server rooms. The capabilities of these data centers are also extended from the one-single rack with integrated power and cooling components to multiple racks that can be installed in existing offices and commercial spaces. These data centers involve a single rack or up to 20 racks of sizes varying from 7U to 47U.
Infrastructure in traditional data center environments consists of hardware and devices. SDDC refers to a data center where infrastructure is delivered as a service through virtualization of the physical infrastructure. In this scenario, the hardware infrastructure is managed through intelligent software systems. An SDDC supports both legacy applications and cloud computing services. It improves efficiency, lowers costs, provides applications quickly, ensures high availability and better security, and delivers workloads in the cloud.
To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from following:
- Micro data center: From stand-alone single rack data centers up to aisle containment deployment with integrated power, cooling, and monitoring solutions…
- Containerized data center: It includes market size of integrated infrastructure modules, namely IT, power, and cooling in one modular system…
