Schneider Electric Defines Physical Infrastructure Solutions for Edge Computing

ANDOVER, MA – April 19, 2016 – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management and automation, today announced its strategy and capabilities for supporting enterprises, cloud and services providers looking to deploy compute resources at “the edge.” Defined as “IT resources placed close to the end user or data source,” edge deployments present unique challenges differing from those of traditional data centers in that they are often remote and without local IT staff support. This means they require a different strategy to that of a conventional data center, as their lifecycle is longer and they must be easy to manage, secure and deploy while also being resilient.
