StorMagic has developed an integrated micro data centre designed specifically for hyperconverged and edge computing environments.
According to the company, Branch in a Boxis a cost-effective, integrated bundle comprising rack, power, servers, storage, networking and management software.
The system utilises key components from APC/Schneider Electric’s data centre infrastructure portfolio including its physical enclosure, UPS, PDU, cooling, environmental monitoring and security and management software.
It also includes redundant hyper-converged appliances based on Dell/EMC servers and switches, VMware vSphereor Microsoft Hyper-Vhypervisors, and StorMagic’s virtual SAN software.
All pre-integration between key components is delivered through UK distributor Exertis prior to shipping. Once on site, all hardware and software is ready-to-use, and is said to offer a simple, turnkey solution to consolidate and run mission-critical applications at remote and branch offices, retail outlets and SME data centres.
“StorMagic and APC by Schneider Electric’s Branch in a Boxis a great example of two companies coming together to solve a growing customer problem,” says John Glendenning, SVP sales and business development, StorMagic. “Organisations needing simple, low-cost IT solutions to run their businesses at the edge of the enterprise now have an option that requires minimal resource to deploy and manage, whilst significantly improving uptime.”
