Schneider Electric has announced its collaboration with NetApp to deliver the pre-validated Optimized Edge for NetApp HCI solution.
The solution is built on NetApp’s hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) platform and designed for enterprise, remote/branch offices, and small to medium-sized business spaces.
Optimized Edge for NetApp HCI combines edge-computing infrastructure with an open and scalable on-premise hybrid cloud infrastructure.
The solution is a physical infrastructure solution that is integrated to help organisations reduce deployment time, and minimise on-site and remote management.
“As enterprises transform to meet the needs of today’s digitally-driven world, they need the compute infrastructure necessary to support IoT applications with improved bandwidth, lower latency, and peak performance,” said Jim Simonelli, senior vice president, Emerging Businesses, Secure Power Division, Schneider Electric.
“Together, Schneider Electric and NetApp are innovating the traditional approach to hybrid cloud infrastructure to help businesses drive operational efficiencies, reduce costs, and improve efficiency across the enterprise.”
The company added that the solution offers enterprise-scale hybrid cloud capabilities that go beyond first-generation HCI limitations to help businesses transform their data centres.
“Customers today need capabilities that will simplify infrastructure management and accelerate applications at the edge to unlock the value of their data and provide hybrid, multi-cloud solutions that drive efficiencies and reduce cost,” said Brett Roscoe, vice president, Product Management, Cloud Infrastructure business unit, NetApp.
“NetApp and Schneider Electric are bringing together our technology expertise to deliver optimized edge solutions that go beyond traditional hybrid cloud offerings to empower businesses to achieve new competitive advantages.”
The co-innovated Optimized Edge for NetApp HCI solution allows its customers to run multiple applications with independent scaling of both compute and storage resources.
