Type:  White Paper
Length:  9 pages

This paper establishes why micro data centers are best suited to support edge computing over other alternatives such as server rooms and traditional data centers.

First we explain the drivers that favor the adoption of micro data centers, then we discuss the IT technologies that make single-rack micro data centers possible, and then we highlight the capital cost advantages of micro data centers (physical infrastructure only) compared to centralized data centers. Finally, we propose a future
micro data center architecture that could replace traditional enterprise data centers for certain applications.
