Modular Data Center Market Trends

Cloud-based solutions are being used more and more will boost the market growth.

One of the main market drivers is the increasing use of cloud-based products and services. Adopting cutting-edge cloud solutions and apps is a top priority for the government and major companies. Key competitors worldwide are concentrating on creating cutting-edge modular data centers equipped with immersive technologies to store a huge quantity of information. For instance, GI Partners purchased two data centers from NTT Data in January 2019 and invested in developing technical infrastructure. Moreover, CyberPower Systems (USA), Inc. announced the release of Power Panel, a cloud-based program for UPS systems in March 2018. Users may monitor and manage unattended computer shutdowns remotely with the help of this cloud-based program. Thus, this factor is driving the Modular Data Center market CAGR.

Its modular design offers a practical method for installing and removing data Center components, so modular data centers are easily scaleable. They are also easily movable, in contrast to the conventional data centers' stiff designs, which increases their appeal to small and mid-sized businesses (SMEs). Mobile network operators, which use dispersed data centers as a platform to perform network function virtualization, find these data centers' scalability and small size to be an attractive offering. Also, the deployment time for modular data centers is significantly reduced. Modular data centers feature internal cooling and power systems and built-in IT space.

It is anticipated that industrial uses of IoT will generate enormous volumes of data. For instance, according to Quicksilver Capital, an offshore oil rig is expected to create between one and two terabytes of data daily. A smart factory is predicted to produce five petabytes of data every week. By utilizing artificial intelligence, platforms, and algorithms, new business models can translate enormous amounts of data into insights and revenue. According to the World Economic Forum, digitally enabled platform business models will provide 70% of all new economic value in the next ten years. Thus, this aspect will accelerate the Modular Data Center market revenue globally.

Modular Data Center Market Industry News 

February 2023 - As one of its initial proposals to the Pentagon for its recently finalized Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability contract, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has revealed the AWS Modular Data Center.

The Pentagon launched JWCC as a multiple-award contract in December that is available to AWS, Microsoft, Google, & Oracle. JEDI was once Microsoft's $10 billion exclusive JEDI deal.

The Modular Data Centre (MDC), which is intended to handle AWS Outposts/Snowball Edge devices, has only been shown in a 3D rendering by AWS. To US federal clients that qualify for a JWCC contract, the cloud giant claims that MDC may be delivered by ship, train, truck, or military cargo aircraft.

However, in 2021, Microsoft introduced its MDC as an Azure-in-a-shipping-container service instead of any specialized JWCC solutions. The Azure MDC runs an Azure OS and has resource management, familiar APIs, and a cloud interface, unlike typical container data centers. At that time, both defense and business sector organizations were "early users" of Azure MDC units.

For running optimized edge scenarios with public cloud application model when the data centre is not accessible or would take a long time to set up, Microsoft identified a significant demand for swiftly deploying small-footprint data centers.

The AWS MDC, which offers AWS services & APIs for running low-latency applications from faraway locations, has a similar idea. Since it is self-sufficient, the sole need on site is electricity; however, if utilizing AWS Outposts, networking will be required.

The AWS MDC may be outfitted with Snow Family devices for unconnected, Disrupted, Intermittent, or Limited settings to execute workloads utilizing a "scoped subset of AWS services" even while unconnected, according to AWS.

Additionally, AWS MDCs can connect to the network through satellite communications. Both the AWS GovCloud (US-East) and AWS GovCloud (US-West) regions offer support for the AWS MDC service.
