Local Edge Computing
Edge computing is an IT architecture designed to put applications and data closer to the users or 'things' that need them.
There is no doubt that businesses can reap huge benefits from cloud computing, but despite all of the advantages, there are inevitably some drawbacks, predominantly latency and bandwidth costs. Combining cloud services with edge computing enables companies to go beyond the limitations imposed by traditional cloud-based computing architecture.
Edge computing places data processing power at the edge of the network, closer to the source of data or the “Thing” in IoT. Distributing “micro” data centres closer to the points of utilization (The Edge) empowers faster response times and reduces latency and bandwidth costs from the cloud or other remote data centres.
Source UPS have a range of bespoke Edge Data Centre solutions that can quickly be deployed in retail, branch office, education and healthcare applications.
Micro Data Centres for Local Edge
Sometimes referred to as “a data centre in a box” our micro data centre solutions are secure, self-contained enclosures with integrated UPS, PDU, Cooling and monitoring designed specifically to create a data centre environment for local edge computing, open plan offices, schools, retail, or branch locations where there is no dedicated comms room or data centre space.
Server (IT) Room Solutions for Regional Data Centres
Our on-premise server room solutions for 1 to 10 racks range from simple, stand-alone or fully integrated solutions that turn any room into a secure, reliable and always available data centre. These complete and integrated solutions feature power, cooling, racks, security and management components that are developed to work together with integrated server room design and management software. This architecture can be deployed quickly, any time, anywhere: enabling virtualisation, handling high-density applications and increasing efficiency.
Pre-Fabricated Data Centres
Pre-fabricated data centre solutions are pre-engineered, pre-assembled/integrated, and pre-tested physical infrastructure systems. As such, they are delivered “to your door” ready to install. This approach eliminates costly one-time engineering, assembly, installation, and integration at the construction site. Building and testing in the factory while the site is being constructed at the same time results in both time and cost savings. You’ll also enjoy improved reliability, improved agility, higher efficiency, and a higher level of vendor accountability. Pre-fabricated data centre time to deployment can be up to 60% faster than a traditional data centre.
We have 9 UK data centres and Source UPS are our preferred supplier for infrastructure. Their advice is always valuable and well considered. I would strongly recommend Source UPS.
