While ideal for rugged and more remote locations, the choice of the proper MMDC is of course even more important for the user.
As we know, a data center is the actual location housing computer systems, and the components connected to them. That would include telecommunications, backup power, storage and the very important redundant data connections as well as security, fire protection, in-room air cooling, bearing in mind that in some large-scale facilities, the energy consumption alone rivals that of a small town.
Originally data centers were used only by a few, but with the invasion and explosion of the dot.com bubble, they have become increasingly popular — and necessary — to keep not only the flow of business smoothly uninterrupted, but even the user’s operations at home keep each user more and more dependent on that computer and all the advantages it offers to keep all three or four bowling clubs moving smoothly through the air without dropping one.
Size has for a long time been the big hurdle. Now however, the growth and importance of the data center has inspired the rise of interest in creating and developing newer, smaller, and more efficient MMDCs. This would include lowering cost to the consumer. It should use less power costs. It should have increased security against access its servers from hackers, etc. Maintenance too, has to be kept within bounds. The entire apparatus must be sturdy so that, if necessary, in a disaster or emergency situation, the MMDC can be quickly and safely removed to a more secure location. And finally, add to the emergency measures, mobility that enables the user to move their data center to any other location if and when needed.
These ground-breaking maneuvers have created a major change in market strategies, mostly in the hope of enjoying more consumer involvement.
While moving a MMDC isn’t quite as simple as creating a page on the Microsoft Publisher or a document in Openoffice, the MMDC is, nevertheless, not too difficult to perform and the difference between the next-to-impossible moves of a traditional setup makes moving the MMDC, by comparison, a snap.
In the end, some may still wonder if they really need an MMDC, especially in the home with only three or four computers, or perhaps even only one,
A Micro Modular Data Center offers a significant reduction in the cost of power consumption, it’s a simple solution to many of your computer’s daily challenges and it can grow with you and with your needs as you go along. It is even possible to implement your own hybrid Cloud for added storage and security.
