IoT Placing Real-Time Demands on Centralized Data Centers

The rapid growth of IoT has placed real-time demands on enterprises with centralized data centers. It is expected there will be 34 billion devices connected to the internet by 2020, up from 10 billion in 2015, representing a 28% five-year compound annual growth rate (Business Insider and BI Intelligence). In the near future, employing edge computing may no longer be a cost-saving option but likely required to meet customer demands given traditional computing devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, etc.) will comprise 10 billion connections.

The implementation of local, real-time collection and analysis of critical data close to the edge has changed the data center landscape with the growth of edge computing. And, edge computing has advantages.

Edge computing provides reduced security risks, removes bandwidth and latency issues while lowering overall operational and data management costs. One preferred solution is to deploy Modular Data Centers (MDC) specifically built for edge computing networks; simplify procurement, installation, operational efficiency, and reduce costs.

Modular Data Centers now include redundancy, racks with increased processing power (15 kW/rack), built-in, high performance cooling systems, controlled access, and energy efficient, high-strength light-weight concrete enclosures.

What do you look for in Modular Data Centers?

When considering a Modular Data Center, evaluate your your current and future data capacity needs. Determine if the solution lowers your total cost of ownership (TOC). Is it:

  • Rugged - ideal for remote ops, edge networks, disaster recovery, and does the MDC outperform in harsh environments (not a glorified ISO container)?
  • Advanced Engineering: inside and out, is it designed to maximize uptime for data centers deployed at the edge?
  • Best-In-Class: does it include advanced power systems, cooling, efficiency, and enhanced structural stability?
  • Quick to Deploy: will it take less time to design, acquire and deploy?
  • Scalabe - is it an optimized data center product for edge networks that is repeatable and standardized?
  • Lower Cost - will it eliminate wasted capital and operational expenses (Capex, Opex), rightsize growth and avoid the costs of overbuilding?
  • Replace - older and inefficient data center infrastructure equipment and reduce your costs?
  • Reduce - your onsite construction disturbances, risks and associated costs?
