Cost Benefit Analysis of Edge Micro Data Centre Deployments
Several IT trends including internet of things (IoT) and content distribution networks (CDN) are driving the need to reduce telecommunications latency and bandwidth costs. Distributing ‘micro’ DCs closer to points of utilisation reduces latency and costs from the cloud or other remote DCs. Such a distributed DC architecture also provides the physical infrastructure benefits of any small DC – regardless of the latency requirement.
Victor Avelar, Director and Senior Research Analyst at Schneider Electric’s Data Center Science Center, explains how micro DCs take advantage of existing infrastructure and demonstrates how this architecture can reduce capital expenses by 42% over a traditional build – plus other benefits such as shorter project timelines.Download Whitepaper
