Sonic Edge launches micro data centre offering
Sonic Edge Ltd (Sonic Edge) confirms the launch of its Sonic EdgePods, a range of micro data centres (MDC).
The new pods have been designed to meet the need to distribute compute, storage and services closer to the end user.
“EdgePod’s are designed to operate autonomously and are built to customers required Tier level and design specifications,” said Stuart Priest Founder of Sonic Edge Ltd.
“Because of the unique way the EdgePod’s are designed and built, we can deploy them in weeks rather than months, enabling customers to accelerate technology deployments far quicker than has traditionally been experienced in the past.”
Specifically, the EdgePods can be built to support either multi-tenancy or sole occupancy and range from 6 metre 50kW 5 rack up to 12metre 120kW 10 rack with either direct expansion (DX), chilled water or liquid cooled options.
In addition, they are designed to operate autonomously and are built to a tailored Tier level classification to support each business requirement and service-level agreement (SLA).
“Since launching our range of Sonic EdgePod’s in March we have had enquiries from Kenya, Indonesia, Spain, Germany and the UK. The fact we are completely autonomous in terms of the vendor technology we use to build out the Pods, means our customers can be involved in the EdgePod design from day one, if required. Each Pod is bespoke to them and their business needs, which gives them a real sense of buy-in and product satisfaction,” continued Priest.
“The Distributed Edge and MDC market is seeing some significant growth at the moment and this is only going to accelerate as the demand for compute, services and storage delivered locally continues. We see our EdgePod’s taking full advantage of this exciting new technology sector.”
