Schneider Electric and Scale Computing Partner to Help Retailers Support Critical Business Applications with Edge Computing
Schneider Electric announced its partnership with Scale Computing to deliver the Scale Computing HC3 Edge for retail solution in Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure Micro Data Centers.
Developed to make edge computing more accessible and affordable for organizations of any size, Scale Computing's HC3 Edge virtualization platform will be deployed in EcoStruxure Micro Data Centers to help retailers optimize all in-store functions and enhance the customer experience.
Single solution helps retailers support business-critical applications:
Shipped fully integrated and ready to deploy, this certified pre-integrated solution provides complete IT infrastructure within a secure, standalone enclosure for improving business' uptime and resiliency while providing protection of critical retail business applications. With the integration of Scale Computing HC3 Edge, isolated retail locations will be transformed into self-managing micro data centers to better support critical retail business applications.
Modernized IT infrastructure supports retail stores of the future:
Scale Computing's patented technology transforms isolated locations into unified, self-managing micro data centers for edge computing, delivering the stability, support and simplicity needed to modernize stores with IoT. It provides a single platform for retailers to run applications across point of sale, building management, security applications, inventory management, asset management and more.
EcoStruxure Micro Data Centers provide certified interoperability, which reduces configuration and deployment times. In addition, they provide simplified management with Schneider Electric's next generation data center infrastructure management (DCIM) platform, EcoStruxure™ IT, which provides remote monitoring capabilities and lower onsite servicing by an estimated 50 percent when deployed with an APC Smart-UPS Lithium-ion. Retailers can also leverage EcoStruxure Asset Advisor - Schneider Electric's expert service bureau for 24/7 remote monitoring and troubleshooting support.
Together, this combined solution is ideal for the retail edge and distributed computing environments.
