“Through this new offer, Schneider Electric is addressing the latency, bandwidth and processing speed challenges customers are facing with the growth of connected devices and data applications,” said Dave Johnson, senior vice-president of Data Centre Solutions with Schneider Electric. “We are already seeing the emergence of edge applications in retail and industrial applications, and we believe the need for edge computing will only grow as the Internet of Things expands into commercial applications.”
Schneider Electric’s micro data centre physical infrastructure solutions include the enclosure, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), power distribution, management software (DCIM), environmental monitoring, cooling and security—all tested, assembled, packaged and then shipped together in a factory environment, according to the company.
Solutions include: SmartBunker SX, SmartBunker CX, SmartBunker FX, and SmartShelter.
The new micro data centre solutions are now available in North America and will release globally during 2015. Each solution has specific options available and can be customized upon request.
