A couple of days ago at Cisco Live, Cisco, in conjunction with Schneider, presented more details of the new enclosure targeting Micro Data Center solutions, the NetShelter WX 6U Wall Mount enclosure. With this joint product, these two tech giants seek to overcome new IT challenges due to the rise of edge computing. Significant challenges like delivering enhanced digital services to customers, and collect and process large amounts of data being generated outside of the data center. Cisco and Schneider Electric have a 15-year history of partnership that continues to grow stronger as they work together to address unique challenges of this new realm known as edge computing.

These companies understand that establishing edge computing infrastructure can be a daunting task, as they keep deploying, managing, securing, and supporting IT infrastructure in potentially hundreds or thousands of non-traditional environments. This partnership offers co-engineered and integrated Micro Data Center Solutions to simplify edge computing. The enclosure is designed for non-traditional IT infrastructure locations, such as light industrial and retail applications. It can be mounted on the wall or the floor (with casters), and comes with a filter kit, integrated fans to draw air through the back, and is secure with locks on all panels. This new enclosure is a crucial component available for joint Cisco and Schneider edge solutions.

These solutions are based around Cisco HyperFlex Edge hyperconverged infrastructure, matched with Cisco switches and APC uninterruptable power supplies (UPS), enclosures, and security and physical infrastructure monitoring. Offered in multiple configurations and enclosures, they can configure to fit a wide variety of environments and workloads. Users get turnkey simplicity that delivers consistent, repeatable results in every location.

This partnership states that in just three years, over 50% of new enterprise IT infrastructure deployed will be at the edge rather than in data centers, and by 2024 the number of apps at the edge will increase 800%. For companies like Cisco, scaling at this pace means working smarter, not harder, to make edge computing economically and operationally. Cisco’s Micro Data Center Solutions ship pre-integrated and ready to be deployed from the box. Onsite deployment is kept to a minimum as well, with full remote deployment capabilities.

The NetShelter WX 6U Wall Mount joint product was announced last year, and since the end of the year, it has been available globally.
