Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, announced today new solutions for micro data centers that couple APC by Schneider Electric physical infrastructure with Cisco’s HyperFlex Edge, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions for quick and efficient deployment in edge environments.
Together, Schneider Electric and Cisco can now offer IT global channel partners and system integrators access to several new reference designs for HyperFlex deployments that can be used as-is or be customized to meet specific micro data center needs.
