PRESS RELEASE:  Cisco Live, Barcelona, Spain – Schneider Electric and Cisco have joined forces to release a brand new edge computing solution which integrates Cisco’s HyperFlex Edge, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) within Schneider Electric’s industry-first 6U Wall Mount EcoStruxure Micro Data Center

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. With live demonstrations at Cisco Live, Barcelona, 2020, the system will showcase new physical and cyber security features, including a high-performance image recognition application and the recent Device Security Vulnerability Assessment now available in EcoStruxure IT Expert™.

The new Schneider Electric & Cisco solution brings resilient, secure and localized computing capabilities closer to where the data is created, processed and stored. HyperFlex is a complete, engineered HCI solution built on the Cisco UCS platform, enabling customers to extend the power and simplicity of HCI from data centers to critical IT systems at the edge of the network.

“Cisco and Schneider Electric have been Alliance Partners for more than 15 years,” said Rob McKernan, Senior Vice President, Secure Power Europe. “As part of that collaboration, we continue to innovate and build on the integration capabilities between our companies. This helps partners to deliver best-in-class, pre-integrated systems, safe in the knowledge that the solution will work predictably, as planned from the minute it is operational. 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.”

Cisco’s HyperFlex Edge with Schneider Electric 6U Wall Mount EcoStruxure Micro Data Center will become commercially available later this year.  For more information, you are invited to visit the Intel Café during Cisco Live 2020 which runs from 27 – 31 January in Barcelona.
