Schneider Electric has announced its partnership with Scale Computing to deliver the Scale Computing HC3 Edge for retail solution in Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure micro data centres.
The announcement was made last week at BroadGroup’s Edge Global Congress in Austin, revealing the partnership has been developed to make edge computing more accessible.
Scale Computing’s HC3 Edge virtualisation platform will be deployed in EcoStruxure micro data centres to help retailers optimise all in-store functions.
With the integration of Scale Computing HC3 Edge, isolated retail locations will be transformed into self-managing micro data centres to better support critical retail business applications, according to the company.
“Today’s brick-and-mortar retailers are remaining competitive by investing heavily in edge computing solutions that transform the in-store buying experience into one that is simple and interactive,” said Jim Simonelli, senior vice president, Emerging Businesses, Schneider Electric Secure Power Division.
“Micro data centres are becoming retailers’ integrated solution of choice to support this new wave of applications that require data processing closer to the source.
“Delivering the Scale Computing HC3 Edge for retail in Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Micro Data Centres will help retailers ensure their IT environments can support applications now and in the future.”
Scale Computing’s patented technology transforms isolated locations into unified micro data centres for edge computing.
Together, the combined solution is ideal for the retail edge and distributed computing environments.
“Scale Computing HC3 Edge for retail was developed to meet the variety of challenges retailers face when updating their edge and remote infrastructures,” said Jeff Ready, CEO, Scale Computing.
“With the Scale Computing HC3 Edge deployed within Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Micro Data Centres, retailers receive best-in-class capabilities to help them modernise their stores and enhance the customer experience.”
With Scale Computing HC3 Edge for retail, the company revealed that the customers can manage critical edge compute resources remotely, without the need for onsite IT support and monitoring.
