Schneider Electric - APC Infrastructure - Redefining Data Center Development

The concept of Edge Network and Compute involves placing networking and computing closer between the cloud and the local device to reduce latency. Edge Computing Architectures come in 3 forms; a gateway or embedded device, Micro Data Center (typically 1-10 racks), or Regional Data Center. Micro Data Center architecture is growing in popularity. APC defines a micro data center is a self contained, secure computing environment that includes all the storage, processing and networking required to run the customer’s applications. It ships in single enclosure and include all necessary power, cooling, security, and associated management tools (DCIM). APC by Schneider Electric's SmartBunker enclosure allows for rapid and reliable deployment of Micro Data Centers to virtually any environment from existing traditional data center spaces to factory floors to office spaces and even outdoors. We invite you to stop by the APC Sandbox display for hands on with a live APC SmartBunker.
