Schneider Electric’s 6U Wall Mount is designed for edge computing environments where space is at a premium and reliability is a must. It allows large, heavy edge servers, networking equipment and UPS to be safely mounted on a wall. The Company claims that the pre-integrated and hyper-converged solution reduces time to market by 50% and engineering costs by 35%.
Edge computing presents customers with a number of new challenges, including greater numbers of distributed systems deployed in environments not optimized for IT, which are often unstaffed, placing new physical and cyber security demands on the solution, said Schneider Electric.
Cisco’s HyperFlex Edge with Schneider Electric 6U Wall Mount EcoStruxure Micro Data Center will become commercially available later this year.

At the edge, reliability is essential, and with interoperability between EcoStruxure and Cisco Intersight, partners can manage multiple edge sites on behalf of their customers, whilst generating new service revenues.
