APC UPS – Uninterruptible Power Supply
In today’s “always on, always available” world where businesses can’t stop and downtime is measured in lost revenue, APC provides protection against some of the leading causes of downtime, data loss and hardware damage: power problems and temperature. APC’s Uninterruptible Power Supplies offer a range from 325VA for the home or small business up to 10,000VA for datacentre applications – 325VA, 350VA, 500VA, 750VA, 2200VA, 3000VA and 10,000VA variants.
APC PDUs – Power Distribution Units
APC provides a wide array of power distribution solutions for your IT environment. APCs standardized PDUs are designed to increase the manageability and efficiency of your data centre. Power Distribution solutions provide real-time remote load monitoring of connected equipment and individual outlet power control for remote power recycling, manage power-up or power-down sequencing of equipment. IT and Data Centre Managers rely on APC PDU alarms to warn of potential power overloads before critical IT failures occur.
APC Edge Computing
Designed to put applications and data closer to devices – and their users. While cloud computing drove the creation of mega data centers, edge computing brings distributed IT with an exceptional number of micro data centers.
Edge computing is an IT deployment designed to put applications and data as close as possible to the users or “things” that need them.
Edge Computing vs Fog Computing
These industry terms have such similar intent that they can be used interchangeably, and the industry is leaning towards Edge Computing as the de facto standard. Some may have coined the phrase Fog Computing, but the majoity of players in the industry have adopted the term Edge Computing.
Why is Edge Computing Necessary?
Edge computing is necessary to address shortcomings in cloud-based applications and services with respect to performance and regulatory requirements. In short, cloud computing can’t always meet the required demands in terms of response time that critical applications require. Companies that face government regulations regarding where data is stored may also find cloud computing can’t deliver the sort of local storage they need.
It’s an issue because the trend toward digitisation to improve efficiency and business performance is fueling demand for applications that require peak performance, particularly Internet of Things (IoT) applications. IoT applications often require lots of bandwidth, low latency, and reliable performance while meeting regulatory and compliance mandates, making them classic candidates for the edge.
