HPE and Schneider Electric to Partner on ‘Micro Datacenters’

Industrial automation provider Schneider Electric and Hewlett Packard Enterprise plan to announce a partnership on a templated, pre-configured architecture for what is being described as “a micro-modular Data Center for distributed IT and edge computing.” The announcement is set to come Monday afternoon during the Data Center, infrastructure, and operations management conference in Las Vegas Monday sponsored by analyst firm Gartner,

That product is being made available to HPE customers immediately, according to the company.

“HPE is announcing what they’re calling their Micro Datacenter,” stated Steven Carlini, Schneider’s senior director for data center global solutions, in an interview with Data Center Knowledge.  “They’re partnering with us for delivering this solution.

“What’s less interesting to the IT guys is physical infrastructure.  The enclosures, the VDUs , the cooling, the environmental monitoring, the door-open and door-closed security monitoring, that kind of thing.  Schneider is partnering with the IT OEMs, helping them deliver these smaller solutions easily and cost-effectively to the customers ­­– what we call, drop-in-place micro data centers.”

HPE told us its role in the partnership will be to provide the base server hardware, which in this instance will come from its Converged System product line including its Hyper Converged servers, plus its new Edgeline servers.  The server maker has been recently marketing ConvergedSystem servers to customers that require large amounts of data be stored in close proximity to their operations – for example, to natural gas producers conducting seismographic operations at remote sites.
