Advantages of iBOX mobile data center relative to fixed data center
More than 50% of the costs and time of construction and operation of a data center consumes during the provision and construction of its infrastructure equipment.
The Mobile Data Center reduces the cost of creating and operating a data center in comparison to the fixed data center, and has many benefits, such as easy to move and install, expandability and usability in a variety of environments. The fixed data center is usually constructed with building materials and the following are some of the benefits of Mobile Data Center.
Reduce initial investment
In choosing the building of a data center and its other infrastructure systems, the future development of the data center should be considered and predicted. Therefore, the initial investment cost will increase, and because of rapid technological changes and the need to adapt to them, this initial investment is hard to justify. The mobile solution is the intelligent solution to reduce the cost of initial capital and to meet the technological needs and rapid changes in the field of information technology.
In the implementation of a fixed data center, the employer is involved in the construction and installation process of the equipment in their places, and he needs to have direct management and coordination of different contractors for different infrastructures (which runs step by step at the employer's premises), while the conflicts during the construction process of the Mobile data is minimized.
As a standard engineering solution, the data center module is easily built in the factory and the only remaining process is to launch it on the site. The facilities for making the mobile data center at the factory site are much better and more accessible than the site, resulting in a significantly lower set-up cost.
In the mobile solution, space is used effectively and allows for accurate airflow management. Therefore, the effectiveness of energy use in these modules is greatly improved.
Undoubtedly, the management of a matched and mobile collection is much easier than an unmatched and widespread collection, and this is the inherent advantage of the mobile data center.
The mobile data center solution can unimaginably speed up the deployment of infrastructure and infrastructure equipment in the data center.
The time to create a fixed data center from the initial design to the launch is typically time consuming. The speed of implementation and construction in a business is an essential element and its implementation time is very important.
