The global mini data center market was valued at USD 2 billion in 2016 and is expected to surpass USD 4 billion by 2021, says Technavio.
Technavio has announced its latest market research report on the global mini data center market, under its data center portfolio. This market analysis discusses the major drivers and key emerging trends and offers an analysis of key vendors like Canovate, Emerson Network Power, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, Huawei, Instant Data Centers (EMS), Rittal, and Schneider Electric.
According to Abhishek Sharma, an industry analyst for data center research at Technavio, “Increased deployment of VDI is driving the global mini data center market. Virtual desktop infrastructure is transforming the IT workspace. Many enterprises across the globe are involved in adopting VDI solutions to enhance flexibility in workplaces.”
The major industries adopting VDI solutions are BFSI, healthcare, and education. The emergence of converged infrastructure solutions and mini data centers will offer an opportunity to all SMEs to adopt mini data centers with converged IT infrastructure. Converged IT infrastructure includes storage, server, and networks to host multiple virtual machines in the same office building.
Growing need for edge computing
Edge computing refers to an architectural model in which the data generated by IoT devices are processed at the edge of the network, which is mostly close to the source of data. Several industries, such as utilities, retail, automotive, manufacturing, and social media are using IoT for increased data transfer. Such growing number IoT-enabled devices is expected to boost the need for edge computing facilities.
Implementation of SDDCs
SDDC is 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 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.
