In association with

The increasing consumption of digital services means that more and more demand is being placed on data centres, and data is taking longer to reach its destination. In general, the further the distance from the data centre, the longer it takes to deliver digital services, and with greater bandwidth costs. Placing data centres closer to the point of use - also known as edge computing - is one solution to these issues.

This whitepaper establishes why micro data centres are best suited to support edge computing over other alternatives such as server rooms and traditional data centres.

Download it now to learn more about the drivers that favour the adoption of micro data centres, the IT technologies that make single-rack micro data centres possible, and the capital cost of these compared to centralised data centres.
