The Oper8 Global Micro Data Centre incorporates the traditional Data Centre Hardware, only smaller.

Making IT Simple and Secure

By bringing data processing closer to end-users and enabling organisations to distribute their Data Centre footprint, Micro Data Centre can reduce costs and deployment times while increasing resilience and scalability.

Oper8 Global’s Micro Data Centre solutions – small in size, big on performance.

 There is plenty of hype around 5G, and for good reason.

The high throughput cellular technology has plenty of potential. However, the millimetre waves and microwaves used by 5G technology don’t travel far.

This means many small 5G stations are required for sufficient coverage of a given area.

Micro Data Centres will be essential to building the underlying infrastructure that enables end-to-end 5G connectivity.


UPS System

Rack Fully Customisable 

Environmental Monitoring


Introducing Oper8 Global’s Micro Data Centre solutions – small in size, big on performance.

The innovative Oper8 Global Micro DC solution is flexible to suit a diverse range of applications, indoor or out. Using a modular approach, the Micro DC can be scaled as budget
or requirement allows offering an extremely cost effective way to manage your IT estate.

Air Conditioning

The Oper8 Global Micro is designed with a unique air conditioning system. The self contained air conditioning unit does not require any pipework or external moto-condensing units as it is all built into the indoor unit.

Not only does this reduce the cost and speed of deployment, but it also increases security. Less external components mean less risk to mitigate.

Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS)

Oper8 Global offers a great selection of rack-mounted UPS systems from well-established, industry-leading manufacturers.

Systems are designed to suit a resilient infrastructure and offer a broad power range.

Fire Detection & Suppression

Protect your environment by optioning a fire detection and suppression system. Available from 1U high, the tiny device can detect fire using an intelligent smoke aspirating system and extinguish any threat by the inbuilt
suppression system.

A range of suppression mediums is available to mitigate a fire risk to your IT estate.

Rack Rails

Like most conventional IT racks, the Oper8 Micro DC uses 19” rack rails to accommodate standard Data Centre Hardware. To maximise efficiency of the smaller footprint, it is possible to add a further 6U to the side of the rails to mount switches, EMS, Fire Panels etc vertically. In total an additional 12U can be supported using the rails.

Environment Monitoring & DCIM

Let Oper8 Global’s EMS and DCIM systems monitor the environment to mitigate risk and keep you informed as to what is going on 24/7 where ever you are.

Not only is the environment monitored, but additional hardware (UPS/Fire etc.) is also able to be monitored, providing customers with an excellent overview of their IT estate in real-time, anywhere in the world.

%5G Micro Data Centre

Micro Data Centres for Telecom & 5G

With its ability to be sited indoors or outdoors and unique customisation, the Oper8 Global Micro DC is a great fit for many applications.

Lower Latency

This is the fundamental issue MDCs help address. By bringing the “client” and “server” computers geographically closer, MDCs can lower latency significantly.


By enabling a standardized and repeatable design, MDCs can reduce OPex and maintenance costs.

Faster Deployment Times

Because their small size makes accessing adequate space and power easier, MDC provisioning is significantly faster than a traditional data centre build-out.


Oper8 Global MicroDC

Mission critical IT, Network, Compute and IoT platforms come in many different sizes – however, all them have something in common – their mission critical nature.

Complementing cloud solutions with on-premise infrastructure is a natural fit for many organisations who require:

  • Local hyperconverged IT platforms
  • The need to maintain existing applications or business systems locally – whether they might work in the cloud or not
  • High Performance Compute (HPC) locally
  • Cost effective, office connected, (10Gbps to 100Gbps) fibre-speed connectivity to critical compute infrastructure
  • Low latency applications
  • Local data storage
  • A distributed mesh of local data centre capacity

A Micro Data Centre, or MicroDC, is a purpose-built data centre comprising one or more IT racks, integrated (and dedicated) cooling racks, with fully integrated systems typical of larger data centre facilities. Oper8’s MicroDCs include integrated power protection, cooling, monitoring and optional fire detection and suppression.

IP66 Rated

Oper8 Rugged Micro DC

The Oper8 Global Micro Data Centre can be specified with an IP66-rated enclosure. This option enables the Micro DC to be located in much harsher environments. This allows the Micro DC to free up office or warehouse space and exploit the unused space outside the building.

Better still, the external variant can be easily sited at remote locations. With the optional remote monitoring with excellent real-time visibility over your IT estate and full support from Oper8 Global, owning and operating this solution remotely is simple.

  • IP66 Rated Enclosure
  • Waterproof and Dustproof
  • Standard inclusions:
    • Solid front and rear doors with keyed locks
    • Double-lined roof
    • Lifting eyelets

Choice of Dimensions

  • 1 to 6 IT Racks
  • 40U, 42U or 45U internal Rack Height
  • 600mm or 800mm Wide IT Racks
  • 1250mm or 1450mm Deep Enclosure
