Locate your Data Centre Anywhere with a Micro Data Centre

What is an Oper8 Micro Data Centre (MDC)?

Oper8’s Micro Data Centre is a standalone enclosure that houses your IT infrastructure and provides you with the freedom to locate your data and IT infrastructure where-ever you need it.

It is streamlined, attractive and has high security, enabling you to showcase your investment in high pedestrian traffic areas (why not get it with your business logo or advertising) yet so practical, that, if you are limited for space, can be tucked away in any location because it doesn’t require dedicated cooling, raised floors or fire detection and suppression as it is already within the enclosure.
Flexibility is key with a Micro Data Centre, it is modular and can expand as the need arises, move premises with you, removing the need to build a new computer room and delivers the functionality and systems typical of metro and cloud data centres where you need it most – locally. It is even available as an outdoor model (IP66 rated).

Most importantly, it provides a right-sized solution to your data and IT infrastructure needs.
