Oper8 NanoDC

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
  • Low latency applications
  • Local data storage
  • Ablity to maintain and support critical network nodes, including key PoE supplies in the network
  • Local IoT data processing and aggregation before dispatching to cloud based analytics platforms
  • A distributed mesh of local data centre capacity

A Nano Data Centre, or NanoDC, is a purpose-built data centre comprising a single IT rack, with fully integrated systems typical of larger data centre facilities. Oper8’s NanoDCs include integrated power protection, cooling, monitoring and optional fire detection and suppression.

Lack of Data Centre power and cooling?

Systems can't migrate to the Cloud?

Latency and network performance challenges?

No local Cloud platforms or infrastructure?

Need local data storage with cloud backup?
