A microdatacentre (or micro-datacentre) is a self-contained managed environment (in a cubicle or container) housing server racks, cooling (air conditioning) and power (UPS system) connections. A microdatacentre is a smaller alternative to a fixed-building datacentre and allows operators to install datacentre-type processing power close to the point of need in an ‘Edge’ computing format. Once […]
The term ‘containerised building’ is used to refer to a shipping-type container that has been converted for use into a building. These are usually older 20foot or 40foot shipping containers whose inner and outer sides have been treated and re-coated (sprayed) for their use as server room or datacentre containers. Inside the container, the fit-out […]
Containerised buildings are fully functional and fitted-out datacentres that can be deployed relatively easily and quickly to meet client demand. This can be for Disaster Recovery (DR) or as a temporary measure to provide additional computing power. Containerised buildings can also be used for generators and uninterruptible power supplies. The benefit is that the building […]
Modular datacentres can provide a quick way to boost local onsite computing power or provide server computing power in a remote region. They can be supplied for permanent installation or on a temporary hire basis. Whatever the time period, a full site survey and project plan is need for a modular datacentre roll-out plan.
