Global Mini Data Center Market 2017-2021

About Mini Data Center

A mini data center is defined as a self-contained system designed to be from a single rack (micro data center) to up to 40 rack enclosure (containerized and aisle containment solution). The system houses IT infrastructure with integrated support infrastructure, such as power and cooling systems. These data centers can support IT load of up to 250 kW and are suitable as disaster recovery data centers, branch office operations, and for edge computing purposes.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global mini data center market to grow at a CAGR of 17.17% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Mini Data Center Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global mini data center market: Canovate, Emerson Network Power, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, Huawei, Instant Data Centers (EMS), Rittal, and Schneider Electric

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Advanced Facilities, ALTRON, CANCOM, Cannon Technologies, CELESTE (Datacenter Marilyn), DATAPOD, DartPoints, dataracks, Gardner DC Solutions, Hanley Energy, ICTroom, Inspur Technologies, Minkels (Legrand), NTR Inženiring, Panduit, smartcube, Workspace Technology, ZTE, ZELLABOX, TSI-STULZ, Rahi Systems, and RZ-Products

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Infrastructure in traditional data center environments consists of hardware and devices. SDDC refers to a data center where infrastructure is delivered as a service through virtualization of the physical infrastructure. In this scenario, the hardware infrastructure is managed through intelligent software systems. An SDDC supports both legacy applications and cloud computing services. It improves efficiency, lowers costs, provides applications quickly, ensures high availability and better security, and delivers workloads in the cloud.”

According to the report, the need for data center infrastructure is growing among enterprises worldwide. However, a significant number of SMEs are incapable of making substantial investments in the construction of traditional data center facilities. The establishment of a traditional data center can cost up to $6 million for a 1MW facility. Compared to these facilities, mini data centers are cost-effective, flexible, and scalable. Technological innovations have led to the emergence of mini data centers that can serve as an alternative to server rooms. The capabilities of these data centers are also extended from the one-single rack with integrated power and cooling components to multiple racks that can be installed in existing offices and commercial spaces. These data centers involve a single rack or up to 20 racks of sizes varying from 7U to 47U.
