The nature of today’s digital economy and the surge in data from connected devices has fuelled the growth of edge data centres, which ensure IT services remain reliable, resilient and available. Schneider Electrictoday released new research into data centre availability and why edge computing sites are having a disproportionate affect on the resilience and reliability of digital IT services.
Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today announced it has collaborated with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) on HPE Micro Datacenter, introduced recently at the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S. The collaboratively engineered converged infrastructure solution provides end-to-end IT infrastructure, networking, storage and management in a single, self-contained and easy-to-deploy architecture ideal for distributed IT environments.
Data centres lie at the heart of the digital economy, a market worth around $22.1 trillion (according to latest estimates from United Nations Conference on Trade and Development), and are an indispensable part of the IoT (Internet of Things), connecting embedded devices everywhere from transport and buildings through to industry and power infrastructure, helping provide greater comfort, safety, efficiency, and productivity. Ciaran Flanagan, ABB’s head of global data centres, explains how the Internet of Things (IoT) can transform how data centres operate
Data centre infrastructure management, or DCIM, is growing in popularity as a logical way to manage data centres, offering improved energy efficiency, power availability and other benefits. In this article, Alan Luscombe, director at Uninterruptible Power Supplies., a Kohler company, looks at how UPSs with the right topology, communications and software can contribute to a data centre’s DCIM strategy
