Schneider Electric Tool to Help Deploy Edge Computing with Certainty

By Ken Briodagh August 16, 2017

Schneider Electric, a global energy management and automation company, has recently announced the introduction of its new APC by Schneider Electric Local Edge Configurator, a comprehensive digital software tool designed to empower its partners to more rapidly and accurately plan and design integrated, customized and highly reliable edge solutions. The company said that this tool will help its partners to reduce complexity associated with pre-integration, decrease overall costs, increase operational efficiency, speed installation, enable standardization across large deployments and ultimately provide higher value to customers.

"In response to a growing need for real-time access to information, edge computing is revolutionizing the way in which data can be collected, processed and shared. As a result, edge deployments are becoming mission critical, and ensuring compatibility and validation of systems components is increasingly complex for the channel," said Shannon Sbar, VP, North America Channels, APC by Schneider Electric. "APC Local Edge Configurator delivers Certainty in a Connected World by eliminating these obstacles, empowering partners to easily build, test and ship fully integrated solutions, delivering the power and value channel partners need to remain competitive, and maximizing the business opportunity around edge."

Design, build, test and integration in a single solution
The product reportedly will customize and pre-validate the physical environment around a customer's existing IT stack or build to a predetermined reference specification to achieve a high level of availability, redundancy and standardization, while minimizing risk. An online tool, it draws from a comprehensive, automatically updating library of all currently available APC physical infrastructure solutions, as well as storage, networking, converged and hyperconverged systems from Cisco, Nutanix, Dell EMC and others.
