Many online processes today would not be possible without cloud computing. By remotely accessing data centers, businesses and consumers can rapidly access, process and share complex data with one another. Social media, instant streaming, complex customer databases and E-commerce all rely on cloud computing to connect people and corporations to their data and demand is only increasing.

Devices such as smartphones and personal computers in homes and workplaces now have more powerful data processing capabilities than ever before, but without data centers and wireless internet access, these can still only do so much.  Cloud processing and cloud storage mean that users do not have to have their own complex IT infrastructure in order to use, view and process lots of data. Businesses can save money by not having to pay for and maintain their own on-site data center, and can instead rent the use of a remote data center accessed via the cloud to complete complex data processing requests for them. Consumers can also benefit from services such as vast email storage, online photo backup, digital streaming services, online gaming and much more.

Cloud data centers are centralised locations, containing powerful computer hardware capable of processing high amounts of data at rapid speeds, either used by one business or shared by many. Users access the cloud data center remotely, allowing the data center to handle their data processing and send it back to them in real-time. However, cloud data centers are often located very far from the business or the user. This distance, sometimes spanning continents, can lead to delays in data transfer known as latency. This slow performance can be detrimental to businesses whose customers expect instant results and ongoing latency could lead to losing customers and profits. As a way to tackle this, micro data centers can be deployed into business offices to provide a small amount of processing power at the data source, bridging the gap between the end user and the cloud data center to speed up processing and eliminate latency issues. Micro data center solutions from USystems take up just a square meter of floor space and have soundproof options so no complex infrastructure is needed and there are minimal distractions. If your business relies on the use of a cloud data center, a micro data center could help to improve your processing speeds and increase customer satisfaction.
