In retail, everything has its place; nothing works without structure and order. But one thing usually falls by the wayside: a suitable place for the server. In the healthcare sector, too, such as in doctors' offices or care facilities, there is usually neither a separate room for IT technology nor trained personnel. The ALSO Edge Infrastructure Solution makes a goodness out of this shortage of space.
The operation of IT resources is literally just put in the corner with the ALSO Edge Infrastructure Solution. Instead of transferring data via a network to the cloud or a distant data center, it is processed and analyzed directly at the edge of the network. All operations are processed decentrally, but close to the point of action, which noticeably reduces latency. With the help of innovative monitoring software, all connected components can be managed intuitively via a dashboard.
In this way, IT operations are outsourced simply and securely. Whether server, storage or switch, the "box" can be equipped with varios compute, storage and network components as required.
The world's smallest data center can fit anywhere, With its six height units. The MicroDataCenter used is physically secured and can therefore even be placed directly in the salesroom, hallway or waiting room. Users therefore don‘t need worry about the security of the devices and the data to be processed.
The optional equipment with sensors and cameras brings security and uncomplicated handling to an even higher level - without increasing the effort for control and administration. The Edge Infrastructure Solution simplifies the operation of an IT infrastructure and at the same time prevents failures, which in turn has a positive effect on costs.
The added value of this solution is also useful in many other environments. For example, smaller production facilities or schools and kindergartens also need reliable IT Infrastrukturen that do not take up any extra space and can also be locked and monitored. For the retail sector, the addition of digital price tags, self-service systems or digital signage solutions makes perfect sense and leads to a more modern appearance and sustainably strengthened customer relationships.
The ALSO Edge Infrastructure Solution also forms a perfect basis for the deployment of IoT applications. For example, the gateway of the ALSO IoT Workplace+ Solution can be housed within this solution.
Simplicity can always inspire. In this case, not only your customers benefit from the purchase of a complete IT infrastructure from a single source, you also benefit from the simple provision and administration. If you wish, you can offer your customers an all-round carefree contract including installation, operation and regular maintenance and thus remain in close contact with them.
