Schneider Electric, EdgePresence and Accu-Tech to deploy edge data centres in the US
Schneider Electric has partnered EdgePresence and Accu-Tech to deploy edge points of presence (PoPs).
Through this partnership, EdgePresence will nationally deploy edge data centres that include a fully integrated Schneider Electric EcoStruxure Data Center solution. While as the IT distributor, Accu-Tech will simplify the deployment model to enable increased speed-to-market.
Together the three will provide customers with the connectivity needed to implement dynamic edge strategies in locations across the US.
“Businesses are increasingly relying on next-gen technologies and applications to power their businesses, but often don’t have the IT infrastructure needed to help them scale and meet demand,” said Doug Recker, CEO of EdgePresence.
“We develop unmanned, modular data centres at the edge to give customers in various markets across the US the network access and connectivity they need. We know we need partners that offer a comprehensive set of capabilities and expertise to ensure our data centres run smoothly once deployed – and we have that with Schneider Electric and Accu-Tech.”
EdgePresence required partners to help it simplify the deployment and management of its data centre sites across key markets. Working with IT distributor Accu-Tech, Schneider Electric was identified as a strategic partner to support EdgePresence’s deployments by providing data centre solutions that improved simplicity, enhanced redundancy and ensured uptime through remote management.
Through this partnership with Schneider Electric and Accu-Tech, EdgePresence can provide customers with scalable, modular and efficient PoPs to enable digital business at the edge.
With Schneider Electric and Accu-Tech, EdgePresence will be deploying multiple edge data centres in markets across the US in 2021. Using a wide range of Schneider Electric products, these EdgePods will be purpose-built to provide the space, power, bandwidth and interconnection required in markets that traditionally haven’t had a large connectivity presence.
In addition, EdgePresence will integrate prefabricated data centre modules that are powered by Schneider Electric to meet growing demand by utilising the following solutions:
“Our growing reliance on IoT applications is driving the need for today’s businesses to adopt strategies that support their bandwidth, connectivity and low latency needs,” said Joe Reele, vice president of solution architects, Schneider Electric.
“As a result, we’ve designed solutions to help customers find success at the edge. We’re excited to be building on our relationship with Accu-Tech to enable data centre providers like EdgePresence to provide innovative solutions that usher in the next generation of digital business."
