Leading Edge Data Centres Announces Use of Schneider Electric’s Prefabricated, Certified Edge Data Centre Infrastructure
Leveraging Schneider Electric’s prefabricated data centre infrastructure, with remote access, brings power efficient, faster, and more reliable connectivity to regional Australia
Looking for sustainable, agile solutions to meet the company’s evolving customer needs, LEDC has enlisted Schneider Electric to design, build, commission, and maintain its Tier III edge data centres. Before they are shipped to the site, the data centres are designed, built, and tested in regional Australia, removing many of the traditional construction complications and ensuring that each new facility is created with the same quality, durability, and reliability as the last. In addition to optimizing reliability, Schneider Electric and LEDC will be working to drive the most efficient and robust solutions, including a series of edge data centres sized specifically to be most effective for the community they serve.
“Leading Edge Data Centres was founded in 2019 with a mission to bridge the digital divide in Regional Australia,” says LEDC CEO and Founder, Chris Thorpe. “For years, regional Australian cities have put up with unreliable and costly internet connections, compared to their metropolitan counterparts. With Schneider Electric’s certified edge data centre, which can be quickly replicated in multiple regional sites across Australia, we are finally giving customers a more sustainable, cost-effective option and the ability to reliably access the cloud.”
Previously, LEDC’s potential customers have suffered through connectivity outages costing upwards of $160,000 a year. With support and innovation from Schneider Electric, LEDC will design and build a reliable prefabricated, replicable, and certified edge data centre, that will save its customers up to 80% of that cost.
“Amid today’s global pandemic, remote working became a necessity and digital disparities became more obvious,” said Joe Craparotta, VP Strategic Customers & Segments at Schneider Electric. “By partnering with Schneider Electric, LEDC has kick-started production, focusing on improved connectivity and reliability, along with options for cost-effective network rollout.”
Collaborating with Schneider Electric enables LEDC to offer the following:
· Accessibility and choice - By providing a greater choice of direct cloud access, customers can enjoy faster connectivity through the network of edge data centres across regional Australia.
· Stability and reliability - With secure, Tier III certified edge data centres, customers can withstand even the toughest of extreme Australian weather conditions, providing redundancy and fault tolerance, as well as power outage protection.
· Benefits to regional Australia - Measurable benefits to local and national customers include improved connectivity, competitive hosting, and the ability to develop IoT and smart cities across Australia through innovative growth infrastructure.
Connecting all these devices is Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure IT Expert software, which provides proactive insights on critical assets that impact the health and availability of an IT environment. With customizable dashboards, remote device management, and device health and security vulnerability assessments, the software provides LEDC with continuous site-wide visibility.
