Sonic Edge Ltd has announced it is launching Sonic EdgePods as Micro Data Centres (MDCs) designed to meet computer storage and services needs for end users.

The new micro data centres support either multi-tenancy or sole occupancy and range in size and power from 6-metre, 50kW, 5 racks to 12-metre, 120kW 10 racks, with options including chilled water, DX or liquid-cooled for the power unit. 

Founder of Sonic Edge Ltd, Stuart Priest, talked about Sonic Edge's new product, saying: “EdgePod’s are designed to operate autonomously and are built to customers required Tier level and design specifications. 

"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,” he added.

According to the company's website, the size of the pods allows "a short design, fast fabrication, build cycle and factory testing with a quick and easy site installation" which maximises efficency, scalability and space. 

The company also offer support once an EdgePod has been built, which includes a 24/7, 365-day emergency call-out facility, maintenance management, and site security. 

Stuart Priest added: “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”. 

“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," he concluded.
