Rittal’s Edge Data Centre will once again be to the fore at Data Centre World 2020, providing users with an insight into its standardised, pre-configured IT infrastructure.
Edge solutions are designed to provide computing resources at the perimeter of a given network. Their rapid advance can be attributed to the growing technological demands for low latency, local data processing and high autonomy of infrastructure, system-wide security and high bandwidth. Edge delivers the required processing capacity at the source of data, making it as fast and secure as possible.
The value of edge computing is notable in ‘smart’ production systems, where sensors and actuators continually relay information on the status of processes and infrastructure. This forms the basis for innovative services such as alerts, predictive maintenance, and machine self-optimisation, delivered by the company’s IT department in real time because in order to deliver fast responses to events and anomalies, it’s critical to have low latency between production and the IT infrastructure.
Alongside Edge will be displays of LCP DX cooling solutions and the company’s innovative RiMatrix Containerised Data Centre.
Clive Partridge, Rittal’s Technical Manager for IT Infrastructure advises: “DCW is one of our annual highlights and we’re expecting another busy show.
“For us, it’s about showcasing products and services that we know will improve our customers’ working environments. Our edge data centre solutions are easy to set-up and open the door to Industry 4.0 applications for a complete, one-stop solution, suited to organisations of all sizes.”
