A micro-mobile data center is a small self-contained system designed to be a single rack enclosure that houses IT infrastructure with additional support infrastructure such as power and cooling systems. These data centers can support IT load of around 10 kW and are suitable for branch office operations and edge computing purposes. Deploying a micro-mobile data center with pre-installed infrastructure, including plug-and-play solutions, takes two to four weeks.
The benefits of these data centers include the following:
- Reduced deployment time
- High flexibility, scalability, and portability
- Reduced capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX)
- Ease of operation and maintenance
These data centers can serve as an alternative to server rooms. They operate at a PUE rating of 1.0-1.1. Therefore, they are power efficient with low carbon footprint.
The analysts forecast the global micro-mobile data center market to grow at a CAGR of 46.59% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Enterprises adopting cloud-based infrastructure consider the possibility of establishing SDDCs to achieve better control over business-critical operations and enhance the management of their data center facilities. Many enterprises worldwide are involved in the implementation of SDDCs, which includes the implementation of SDC, SDN, and SDS.”
According to the report, Micro-mobile data centers can be used as a disaster recovery medium. Replication of the operational environment can be achieved at regular intervals through these data centers. Micro-mobile data centers contribute to achieving uninterrupted business operations in situations such as an outage or failure, thus acting as a disaster recovery infrastructure. These data centers are cost-effective compared to operating disaster recovery sites for large data centers.
Further, the report states that organizations experiencing high business growth will prefer containerized facilities due to the need for additional computing power. This poses a challenge to the market.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
