Schneider Electric creates wall mount for edge servers

03 Oct 2019

Schneider Electric has introduced new EcoStruxure Data Center Solutions at this year’s Innovation Summit in Barcelona, as part of the company’s aim to simplify and align its data center solutions.

The EcoStruxure Data Center Solutions are the latest in Schneider Electric’s integrated systems. They combine power, cooling, racks and management to support the deployment of distributed IT networks in all environments.

For the first time, EcoStruxure Micro Data Center now comes in a 6U wall mount model, designed for large edge servers in environments where floor space is at a premium.

According to Schneider Electric, the 6U mount allows large edge servers, network equipment and the UPS to be safely mounted on a wall.

“With the EcoStruxure Micro Data Center 6U Wall Mount’s creative design and functionality, we are able to open up new possibilities to deploy resilient IT at the edge, making digital transformation a reality,” explains Schneider Electric Secure Power Divisions’ SVP of emerging businesses, Jim Simonelli.

“No one else can provide the full, standardized IT infrastructure solutions that Schneider can along with the partner ecosystem to ensure simplified deployment and compatibility. A fully integrated EcoStruxure Data Center Solution, including EcoStruxure IT and Asset Advisor 24/7 remote monitoring and services, ensures resiliency in the cloud and at the edge.”

Schneider Electric has also included new security features within its EcoStructure IT Expert, which is a cloud-based monitoring and management solution for local edge, distributed IT, and data center.

Device Security Vulnerability is able to help users determine threats and engage in preventive measures sooner, ultimately lowering the possibilities of major business disruption and data loss.

Specifically, it helps customers identify and report vulnerabilities, prevent risks, comply with security policies and regulations, and understand the industry best-practices for security. EcoStruxure IT Expert users can find the Vulnerability Assessment on the ‘Assessments’ tab in the tool.
