The HPE Edge Center is a complete self-contained, single cabinet modular, and software-defined data center, which enables any IT environment at the edge. It protects compute, network and storage infrastructure while providing industry first edge management control system which enables edge management automation. The HPE Edge Center provides flexibility to deploy computing fast and efficiently, where and when you need it. The perfect solution for Industrial IoT as well as other enterprise edge or AI workloads.
- HPE Edge Center provides software defined capabilities which enable edge automation.
- Intelligent facilities infrastructure coupled with integrated software management system allows for IT software orchestration. Edge automation features like automated workload protection.
Complete Infrastructure in a Box
HPE Edge Center enables an integrated solution based on a complete software-defined architecture with integrations to traditional virtualization and container platforms. Create holistic edge solutions with compute, network, storage, facilities, and edge management software.
The complete solution includes a software architecture known as software defined facilities (SDF) accelerator, which is built utilizing data center infrastructure management (DCIM), Intel® DCM, and Schneider Electric StruxureWare DCO/DCE.
HPE OneView provides an integrated automated IT management environment for ease of management. The SDF accelerator bundle comes with a free OneView connector allowing for uni-directional pull of data into StruxureWare providing a single operator console.
Each unit includes facilities infrastructure, remote outlet switching, remote UPS/CRAC power management, integrated security, leak detection, fire suppression, and detection for a turnkey solution.
Next generation software-defined facilities provides edge automation via workload protection and emergency shutdown capability, which is an industry first.
A Modular Data Center
Ruggedized any rack mounted enterprise IT hardware for deployment at the edge.
Extremely robust construction providing protection from water, dust and air borne particulates. This is achieved through advanced materials construction, door and maintenance panel seals as well as exterior finishes.
The HPE Edge Center delivers several worldwide models providing medium density solutions from 3 to 8 kW of protected facilities power and cooling capacity.
Modular solutions that are designed specifically to provide a different approach to efficiencies and scalability. Add only what is required in a single cabinet at a time or subtract, and redeploy modular resources that are no longer required.
Each HPE Edge Center comes with a one year on site warranty, support and maintenance contract which can be extended through the use of warranty extensions providing a unified infrastructure warranty.
Flexible Financial Options
HPE Edge Center can be coupled with HPE Flex Capacity or Greenlake offerings, delivering a new cost model for the entire solution. As-a-service enables you to match data center strategic planning to the business need and current or projected revenue, which drives capital and operating budgets.
HPE Flexible Capacity is a hybrid IT service is another financial option that brings pay-as-you go economics and flexibility to on-premise IT.
The HPE Edge Center comes on a universal roller rack which is a solution allowing for the IT to be rolled up into modular solution supporting a for rapid solution deployment and enhanced lifecycle capabilities.
