Micro data centers are the granular-level or rack-level configuration of micro data centers. They are offered as plug and play units with all the components and devices of a traditional data center. A micro data center is a compact facility with on board cooling, telecommunication and storage systems, security, fire suppression, and Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). Micro data centers can be deployed outdoors/indoors and in rugged terrains. They come with casters and self-propelled functions for easy navigation. In other words, a micro data center is a micro modular design that helps to minimize the physical footprint and energy consumed by the brick and mortar model.

A micro data center comprises all the essential equipment of a data center, such as server racks, network elements, power system, cooling system, fire suppression, UPS, Power Distribution Units (PDU), and monitoring and management tools built as a single unit. These modules can be used as a turnkey solution or a plug and play unit. The enclosures are standardized by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) to meet environmental standards and are sturdy enough to handle rugged weather conditions. The modules can be custom-built from a single rack to multiple racks depending upon the customer’s requirements. A micro data center container comes in three specifications, categorized as ISO container, enclosure, and skid mounted.

Large number of organizations are expected to adopt micro data centers. During the forecast period, the market is estimated to grow significantly and presents a potential opportunity for various data center hardware, infrastructure vendors, and operators in the data center industry.

An increasing number of Internet companies and organizations across different business verticals are building traditional data centers to manage the ever-growing data. However, high demand for property, complex IT infrastructure, power source, and its environmental impact through greenhouse gas emission have led to an evolution in the data center industry. Even though, micro data centers were successful in eliminating the traditional brick and mortar model, the need to completely eliminate the physical building was only accomplished by the dawn of micro data centers. Micro data center areas are self-contained as traditional data centers, but have mobility and require highly limited physical infrastructure. A micro data center is a facility, which contains all the necessary equipment on board at a single rack level with portability features. Despite being small in size, these data centers are robust for sustainability across topographically uneven grounds with environmental protection enclosures.

Micro data centers ensure practical, responsive, and agile IT operations in organizations. It enables organizations to simplify the data center operations through capacity planning, density computing, system utilization, and high energy efficiency.. The market is in the initial phase and has many positive drivers, which enable the users to foresee a high growth potential in the next 3–5 years for the micro data center market.

Micro data centers have been adopted as a key solution for computing large sets of data and information as their computing capacity is higher than traditional data center servers. This high-performance data center computing drives the micro data center market, on a global scale. The growing need for virtualized data centers and increasing data traffic have posed a threat to enterprises and infrastructure providers. The increased cost overheads and complexities such as network infrastructure, network cabling in the networking environment has given way to the adoption of high-performance micro data centers as they are less costly and provide High-Performance Computing (HPC), thereby aiding companies in cutting down their Operational Expenditure (OPEX) and Capital Expenditure (CAPEX).

The demand for IT infrastructure is continuously increasing among all the business verticals. Also, capacity expansion along with shrinking IT budgets is emerging as a concerning issue for data center owners. The pre-engineered portable micro data centers are emerging as an efficient and cost-effective alternative over the traditional data centers. These data centers are highly scalable, reliable, and energy efficient, and can be offered as data center in a box. In a containerized micro data center, individual functional modules that include IT, power, cooler, and generator are placed in a single unit, which is then transported to the desired location. The setting up of a micro data center facility takes less time when compared to the traditional data center facility. The growing trend of user-based applications, real-time services, virtualization, and data storage capacity have led organizations to adopt micro approach for data center infrastructure solutions as it  them capability to run the business as well as provide speedy, efficient, flexible, and reconfigurable data center solutions quickly and efficiently. There has been continuous improvement in the design of micro data centers in the recent times. These modules have very low Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and do not need construction of site for data centers as they already come in containers, enabling organizations to reduce OPEX to meet shrinking IT budgets. The containers can be standardized, defined by International Organization of Standardization (ISO) or customized to match the size requirement of the existing data centers. This portability feature is making these data centers useful for the requirement of defense sector at remote locations. These data centers are operational in all weather conditions, and provide organizations the capability to recover data in critical emergency situations.

In this report, MarketsandMarkets provides an in-depth study of the market trends, market sizing, competitive mapping, and market dynamics of the market. The trends, drivers, and the opportunities in the market distinctly indicate noteworthy growth in the coming years. The global micro data center market is segmented across geographical regions, including North America, Europe, APAC, MEA, and Latin America. The market has also been classifed into various industry verticals including BFSI, telecom and IT, government, energy, healthcare, education, and others that includes media and entertainment, retail, automotive, manufacturing, transport, and research. North America is expected to remain the major contributor by 2020. However, APAC is expected to emerge as a major revenue contributing region in the next 5 years due to the rising data center demand. The telecommunication and IT and BFSI verticals are estimated to hold the major share during the forecast period with regards to the total revenue.

The micro data center market research report outlines the key trends and market sizing and forecasting for various emerging sub-segments of the market.
