Secure datacentre solution at the edge

25 April 2018

ABB, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Rittal have introduced the Secure Edge Data Center (SEDC) for industrial and telecommunications environments which enables customers to run enterprise-grade IT in close proximity to their operational technology (OT) environments, machines and equipment to enable low-latency, secure and reliable digital processes.

According to figures from Gartner around 10% of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralised data center or cloud. By 2022, Gartner predicts this figure will reach 50%.  

The SEDC aims to provide a turnkey data center environment, optimised to operate in harsh environments, allowing data acquisition, analytics and control processes to be run near industrial equipment to avoid the latency, security and reliability issues associated with data communication through remote IT systems.??The SEDC is said to simplify the deployment of enterprise-grade IT solutions in industrial environments regardless of their location.

By equipping the SEDC with hybrid platforms, such as HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack, customers can deploy Azure-consistent applications to their preferred location – on HPE infrastructure in the SEDC or a data center, as well as in the Microsoft Azure public cloud – to meet their specific requirements regarding performance, security or cross-site collaboration.
