Micro-Mobile Data Center Market

The micro-mobile data center is a self-contained infrastructure that includes all the compute, storage, networking, power, cooling, and other modules required to run indoor and outdoor applications in a secure computing environment. Furthermore, mobile micro data centers are great for any organization that’s short on time, space, or resources. Small-scale to midsize businesses can use mobile micro data centers to support their onsite applications and services without placing too much burden on IT staff. Hence, many organizations such as IT, retail, and other sectors, are adopting micro-mobile data center due to its benefits. This factor creates lucrative growth opportunities in the micro-mobile data center market during the forecast period.

Top Impacting Factors  

Rising adoption of micro-mobile data center in SMEs enterprises:

The need for data center infrastructure is growing among enterprises globally. However, a significant number of SMEs are incapable of making heavy investments in the construction of traditional data center facilities. When compared with these facilities, micro-mobile data centers are cost-effective, flexible, and scalable. In order to reduce cost and risk, data center designs are becoming more integrated and are being constructed from prefabricated modules that can be deployed quickly, scaled easily and operated efficiently. It takes less time to develop than traditional processes; can be repurposed at another location and easily scaled up or down depending on future needs, such benefits driving the adoption of micro-mobile data center in SMEs. Furthermore, developing markets such as China, India, and Brazil are expected to propel the growth of the micro-mobile data center market. Apart from SMEs enterprises in domains such as manufacturing, retail, and banking & financial are expected to propel the growth of the market.

Rapid deployment due to cost affordable IT operations:

Increased competition among the industry vertical puts restriction on the annual expenditure of the organization. The shrinking of IT budgets compels the companies to consider leasing services for their data center requirements as compared to installing in house data center facilities. Setting up an in-house data center cost proves to be a costly affair for companies, especially during the initial phase of installation.

In addition to the installation, an in-house data center requires regular operating expenditure and a high degree of care for data security and integrity. The installation and maintenance of ana data center represents a huge liability of financial and physical security for companies. This challenge is effectively addressed by micro-mobile data center. Organizations can implement micro data centers rapidly to meet changing demands while avoiding expensive infrastructure changes or data center buildouts. As micro-mobile data center provide very cost-effective operations and maintenance cost is very low; this cost affordability of micro-mobile data center is expected to drive the micro-mobile data center market globally.

Increasing requirement of security, reliability and scalability of data center infrastructure:

The emergence of the industrial 4.0 revolution, big data analytics, and the Internet of Things demands flexible and reliable IT resources. In addition, rise in penetration of cloud computing and rapid digitalization have led to a steady growth of the micro-mobile data center industry. Furthermore, the switch to the work-from-home and remote working increases the demand for security concern in data centers has rapidly driven the demand for micro-mobile data center. This has led to increased focus on speed to market and the ability to deploy micro-mobile data center capacity efficiently and rapidly.

The majority of downtime and system failures are caused by humans.
