Micro Data Centre
A micro data center (MDC) is a small modular data center designed for computer workloads that do not require traditional facilities, including all computing, storage, networking, power, cooling, and other infrastructure required for a given workload.

How Micro Data Centers Work？
How any given micro data center works depends on the specific components installed (switchgear, servers, power supplies, cooling modules). However, at a high level, most micro data centers are deployed, provisioned, and maintained in a similar fashion.
Micro data centers are typically shipped pre-assembled, meaning the equipment is pre-installed in server racks. Once received, IT staff will install all other components and connect network and power cables within the micro data center. From there, the IT department can connect the micro data center to existing utility power, or have an electrician supply new circuits for larger installations.
Once the micro data center is up and running, the IT staff or colocation provider is responsible for configuring and monitoring the equipment.
Benefits of Micro Data Centers
Both traditional data centers and server rooms have high up-front capital expenditures and ongoing operational expenditures. The standardized and modular design of the MDC reduces operating costs, while the small footprint helps keep capital expenditures low.
Micro data centers allow businesses to scale incrementally based on demand. This allows for a more resilient and agile approach to infrastructure, which facilitates rapid growth.
By enabling standardized and repeatable designs, micro data centers can reduce operating and maintenance costs.
Micro data centers can be shipped partially or fully assembled. Additionally, MDCs can be configured much faster than traditional data center expansion due to their small size and easier access to adequate space and power.
Micro Data Centers (MDCs) can solve the problem of low latency, by bringing “client” and “server” computers closer together, micro data centers can significantly reduce latency.
