The digital transformation signifies a radical change and the production world will never be the same again. Industry 4.0 and mobile data offer new possibilities, because sensors, actuators, equipment and robots are networked so as to communicate with the central production control system and also with each other. Large volumes of data (about the production process and the infrastructure of the production environment) are generated that need to be kept available and processed quickly.
Big Data - complex data, quickly evaluated!
Flexible, modular and decentralised IT solutions are vital where this data is created. A short latency (response time) is essential to respond faster to deviations, which means it makes little sense to process such data in an external cloud data center.
This is where Edge Data Centers come in, combining short latencies with the ultimate in computing power and reliability. Edge Data Centers are also available as a fully virtualised private cloud. The customer is able to take care of administration itself or make use of managed services.
Flexible and quickly ready to use.
The Rittal Edge Data Center is a platform for quickly developing an IT environment that can be used flexibly in any other IT environment. The assemblies are available in various output classes and can be combined into a ready-to-use solution in no time at all. That means companies get a data center far faster – with optimum operating efficiency for your particular data center.
You can choose between solutions with 2, 4, 6 or 8 racks. Both the predefined components for power supply, cooling, IT security and monitoring and the cover for your Edge Data Center can be selected as options.
The range extends from a basic cover all the way through to an IT security room or a container for a flexible choice of location.
Configure your very own Edge Data Center now without any obligation – you will find the configurator here.
The configurator is suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises as well as for IoT applications.
