HyperFlex at the Edge – Why it’s Recognized in CRN’s 2019 Tech Innovator Awards Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Email Scott San AntonioNovember 19, 2019November 18, 2019 LinkedIn Viewed: 2304 TAGSCiscoCRNhyperconverged systemsHyperFlex While it’s critical for today’s businesses to embrace hybrid cloud technology to ensure a robust data life cycle, on-premise computing is just as important. And, in order to have a robust compute on-premises – without IT personnel at every location – companies need to have the required physical infrastructure that allows for a dynamic, remotely monitored and manageable platform. We are proud to share APC by Schneider Electric and Cisco’s HyperFlex at the Edge solution has been recognized by CRN as a finalist in the Edge Infrastructure category of its annual Tech Innovator Awards, which analyze solutions based on technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solve IT challenges. Cloud computing can’t always meet required demands in terms of response time that critical applications require, but edge computing is key to helping address those shortcomings. HyperFlex at the Edge supports a complete data lifecycle by providing users with real-time data analysis at the local device level. It marries APC by Schneider Electric’s physical infrastructure and Cisco’s HyperFlex hyperconverged infrastructure to create an edge solution that streamlines hyperconverged infrastructure deployments. The solution also offers IT global channel partners and system integrators access to new reference designs for HyperFlex deployments that can be used as-is or customized to meet specific data center needs. The solutions are pre-engineered to join APC and Cisco equipment to deliver solutions that are pre-integrated, remotely monitorable and physically secure. The transition toward digitization to improve efficiency and business performance is fueling demand for applications that require peak performance. APC by Schneider Electric and Cisco collaborated to design a unique solution for customers that need distributed compute and may not have the physical IT support available. HyperFlex at the Edge not only provides customers with compute, but it supports physical infrastructure and the ability to remotely monitor and manage IT environments. As the needs for edge compute continue to evolve and the marketplace demands for custom solutions that put customer-specific needs front and center, offerings such as this one will be key for success.
