Ltd., Cannon Technologies, Canovate, Chillmann, Dataracks, Dell, Delta Power Solutions, Eaton, Hanley Energy, Hitachi, HPE, Huawei, IBM, Instant Data Centers, LLC., IPSIP Group, KSTAR Corporation, Orbis Oy, Panduit, Rittal, RiverSync., Schneider Electric, Sicon Chat Union Electric, STULZ, Vapor IO, Vertiv and Zellabox.


Vendors who fall into this category receive high scores for most of the evaluation criteria. They have a strong and established product portfolio, and a very strong market presence. They provide mature and reputable micro mobile data center solutions. They also have strong business strategies. Companies such as IBM, HPE, Schneider Electric, Instant Data Centers, LLC, Canovate, Vertiv, Huawei, Panduit, Rittal, Hitachi, Dell, Eaton, and Delta Power Solutions are included in the visionary leaders.


They are established vendors with very strong business strategies. However, they are low in product portfolio. They focus on a specific type of technology related to the product. The companies included in the dynamic category are STULZ, Sicon Chat Union Electric, and KSTAR Corporation.


Innovators in the MicroQuadrant are the vendors who have demonstrated substantial product innovations as compared to their competitors. They have very focused product portfolios. However, they do not have very strong growth strategies for their overall business. The companies included in innovators are Dataracks, Zellabox, Allied Electronics Corp. Ltd, IPSIP Group, Chillmann, RiverSync, Cannon Technologies, Vapor IO, and Hanley Energy.


They are vendors with niche product offerings who have started to gain a position in the market. They do not have very strong business strategies as compared to other established vendors. They might be new entrants in the market and require some time before gaining a significant traction. Advanced Facilities, Inc. and Orbys Oy are included in the emerging category.
