High-strength designs and special packaging enable IT equipment to be pre-installed and shipped directly to customer sites

IT vendors-certified solution with complete physical infrastructure and management software pre-installed and pretested simplifies and reduces deployment time

Industry leading lead time of 2-3 weeks

Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today introduced the Micro Data Center (DC) Xpress line of connected products, making it faster, easier and more cost effective to build and deploy micro data centres at the network edge. Designed to allow IT equipment to be pre-installed by the customer, partner or integrator before shipment, it features complete data centre physical infrastructure and management software in a single self-contained and secure enclosure.  

“In our digitally-connected world, businesses and consumers have a low threshold for interruptions to service. Edge computing solves real-time data transmission issues by bringing bandwidth-intensive content and latency-sensitive applications close to the users or data sources to ensure reliable connectivity,” said Chris Hanley, senior vice president, Data Center Systems, Schneider Electric. “As the market evolves, especially around IoT, we are committed to delivering simplified, cost-effective solutions that enable edge technologies.”

Reliable, integrated and purpose-built offer
Utilising Schneider Electric’s Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software suite, StruxureWare for Data Centers, and built on the EcoStruxure integrated architecture platform, Micro DC Xpress can be integrated into a customer’s larger IT-asset monitoring system or a managed service provider’s RMM and remotely managed via the cloud for maximum uptime and connectivity. The solution also includes physical protection capabilities, including key-card functionality to prevent unauthorized access and ensure the safety and security of the environment. 

The Micro DC Xpress will be available to order in North America, UK and France in April 2017 and in all of Europe later in 2017.

The solution is on display at Data Centre World in London, at Schneider Electric stand G40. For more information, please visit the Schneider Electric website.
