Internet use is trending towards bandwidth-intensive content and an increasing number of attached “things”. At the same time, mobile telecom networks and data networks are converging into a cloud computing architecture. To support needs today and tomorrow, computing power and storage is being inserted out on the network edge in order to lower data transport time and increase availability. Edge computing brings bandwidth-intensive content and latency-sensitive applications closer to the user or data source. This white paper explains the drivers of edge computing and explores the various types of edge computing available.

Small server rooms and branch offices are typically unorganized, unsecure, hot, unmonitored, and space constrained. These conditions can lead to system downtime or, at the very least, lead to “close calls” that get management’s attention. Practical experience with these problems reveals a short list of effective methods to improve the availability of IT operations within small server rooms and branch offices. This paper discusses making realistic improvements to power, cooling, racks, physical security, monitoring, and lighting. The focus of this paper is on small server rooms and branch offices with up to 10kW of IT load.

Use of cloud computing by enterprise companiesis growing rapidly. A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining on-premise, at the “Edge”. In this paper, we describe and critique the common physical infrastructure practices seen today, propose a method of analyzing the resiliency needed, and discuss best practices that will ensure employees remain connected to their business critical applications.

Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime, software and data corruption, are the result of a problematic supply of power. There is also a common problem with describing power problems in a standard way. This white paper will describe the most common types of power disturbances, what can cause them, what they can do to your critical equipment, and how to safeguard your equipment, using the IEEE standards for describing power quality problems.

This paper contrasts the features of medium voltage fixed circuit breaker switchgear (FCBS) and existing withdrawable circuit breaker switgear (WCBS) designs. Modern FCBS design elements that are discussed include an internal disconnect for isolation and grounding of circuits and interlocked operation among disconnect, breaker, and grounding switch for improved safety. Furthermore, features such as lower maintenance, smaller footprint, and reduced life cycle costs that result from its simpler design will be explored. By comparing the traditional ANSI WCBS technology to that of the FCBS, this paper will demonstrate that the fixed design, which has gained widespread acceptance in global markets outside the United States, is a viable alternative to the withdrawable designs.

The first event in the Partnering with Certainy Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." Trends like IoT are driving customer experience expectations in a way that demands resiliency in local edge environments. As a result, we’re seeing a rise of edge computing (compute power coming out of the cloud and into the access layer). Customer demands manifest themselves differently based on things like company size and segment. For example, a retail customer’s business imperatives might look different from a doctor’s office. But one thing remains constant: A standardized, redundant, and repeatable physical infrastructure can protect the availability of these now-critical access-layer IT assets. APC by Schneider Electric has: The solutions you need to deliver a standardized, redundant, & repeatable infrastructure to your customers The tools you need to configure them, The alliances & certifications you trust & rely on, The program to make it profitable. Fill out your information and click "Register" to watch the kick off our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, “Customer Demands at the Edge: Always On, Always Connected.” This webinar originally aired on October 5th, 2017.

Part 2 in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." In our last webinar, we discussed how trends & technologies like IoT and its many applications have helped drive an Always On, Always Connected mentality that has completely evolved customer experience standards. These demands are driving a need for resiliency in local edge environments, meaning compute & storage capacity is now coming back on premise for many applications – especially in industries like Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education. In other words, this highly distributed access layer is now becoming a compute layer – one that is mission-critical to delivering a flawless (or at least acceptable) customer experience. These environments are often make-shift wiring closets (janitor’s closets, back rooms, etc.) with no dedicated IT staff per each location. More than ever before, Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education customers are turning to solution providers to be that “dedicated IT staff” to find and fix problems before they start, so that the customer (or patient, or student) experience they’re working to provide remains a good one.

Part 3 in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." As distributed edge environments become more critical, physical security becomes more important. Nobody would leave their data center wide open for anyone to enter, but that’s exactly how many organizations treat their edge computing sites. Often, they consist of a rack or two of gear in a non-dedicated location, perhaps a janitor’s closet, with little to no physical security. Fill out your information and click "Register" to watch the third event in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, “Customer Demands at the Edge: Protect me from Downtime!” This webinar originally aired on November 9th, 2017. In this webinar, we discuss physical security best practices, including environmental issues such as temperature and humidity monitoring. We also update partners on the physical security features of the latest APC racks and the NetBotz line of security and environmental appliances, cameras and sensors.

The 4th and final event in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." Customers have lots of decisions to make as they feel their way through the changing IT landscape. Which infrastructure and applications should stay on their own premises (if any) and what can they safely move to the cloud? Fill out your information and click "Register" to watch the fourth and final event in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, “Customer Demands at the Edge: Should I Stay or Should I Go?” This webinar originally aired on December 7th, 2017. This final webinar in our webinar series is focused on ways partners can help customers answer the types of questions above and, in the process, become trusted advisors. We’ll go over how to use tools including the EcoStruxure IT suite to analyze customer traffic and help them decide the best home for each application, whether on-premises or in the cloud. (Hopefully we’ll figure out a way to work in the classic Clash tune as well!)

Could you do more for worker safety? Protective gear alone can't prevent arc flash injury. In fact, according to NFPA 70E, injuries sustained during an arc ?ash event would be reduced and survivable due to arc-rated PPE. Complying with the safe work practices required by NFPA 70E and implementing arc flash mitigation strategies through engineering controls will enhance workplace safety for employees and lower financial risk for your company. Read the white paper, "Mitigating Arc Flash Hazards", for more information.

If not, you are increasing the risk for costly, unplanned downtime. However, despite the importance of having a reliable flow of electricity, over half of building owners rely on reactive maintenance programs to care for their equipment. This means they wait until equipment fails completely before initiating corrective action, which is typically 3-4 times more costly than taking preventive measures. A good first step to go from being reactive to proactive is having a power system assessment performed. While often deemed expensive or unnecessary, the truth is power system assessments reveal opportunities to modernize, imiprove performance and help protect employees.
