In recent years, the demand for edge computing services has skyrocketed. Organizations are increasingly looking at edge as a priority for their long-term IT and business strategy. In fact, a recent analyst note published by 451 Research summarizing findings cited2 that “almost all respondents (89%) agree with the notion that their digital transformation objectives depend on building efficient and performant edge computing architecture.”
That’s why I’m excited to share the new release of our Expedient Edge solution. With a mission to make edge computing as easy as possible, our approach to this long-standing issue promises to enable innovation at the edge while removing the headaches and complexity that burden this important need. As the demand for real-time data processing and low-latency applications continues to grow, the ease and efficiency of deploying and managing edge computing infrastructure becomes even more critical. With our new solution, we may just be on the cusp of a major breakthrough in the world of edge computing.
Optimal edge solutions are not about what technology is at the edge. Sure, that’s important, and a cloud-based solution is super relevant these days. But for remote locations that rely on this on-prem technology, it’s more important that the system is resilient, easy to deploy, easy to support, and easy to quickly fix when down! But solutions available till now have been too expensive, too complex, or too limited in functionality. With Expedient Edge, we flip the script. At less than one tenth of the entry price of comparable edge offerings, yet inclusive of the essential service organizations seek, Expedient Edge is poised to reshape the edge, unify OT (Operational Technology) and IT (Information Technology), and help organizations achieve their business outcomes.
With fully managed Expedient Edge services, businesses can ensure that their systems are always up-to-date and running at peak performance, without tasking an already stretched-thin IT/OT team with procurement, deployment, administration, and support.
With decades of experience, Expedient’s engineers, leveraging the latest tech innovations and service experience, built the best edge solution on the market today. Putting together an ecosystem of the right components (including Hewlett Packard Enterprise, VMware, and other IT innovators), Expedient Edge brings together close to a dozen consumption-based managed services along with remote management. Services include virtual machines, containers, backup, licensing, security, patching, and disaster recovery, all in a package built to be set up and deployed by non-IT remote staff.
More importantly, these services are tailored to the demands of those challenges faced by organizations needing an edge solution:
- Simple plug and play installation
- Rack mountable or place in a closet
- Single portal cloud-based management
- Services that ease the burden of control
- Resilient in the face of tough edge environments
- High availability with N+1 redundancy
- Consolidated networking for easy integration into existing networks
Expedient Edge services also provide businesses with a highly scalable solution. With the ability to easily add more resources (CPU, RAM, Storage), businesses can grow from a small deployment for a handful of workloads or power 100+ servers. This means that businesses can start small and expand their systems along the way without having to worry about limitations of the onsite technology.
There are many benefits to implementing edge services in a business, but the biggest benefits most organizations are seeking is a turn-key solution that is fully managed technology. With edge computing, businesses can take advantage of the latest technology and keep their data and systems secure, avoiding the need to hire more resources in their IT department. This saves time, money, and resources while improving overall efficiency.
Moreover, Expedient Edge solves for an important reason edge systems exist; it improves reliability and stability. By processing data closer to the source, businesses can reduce the amount of data transmitted over networks and reduce the risk of data loss or corruption. Additionally, with fully managed technology solutions, businesses can ensure that their systems are always up-to-date and running smoothly. This means that businesses can focus on their core operations, while their technology is managed by experts.
Expedient Edge provides businesses with a highly effective solution for managing their technology needs. With their low latency, real-time data processing, improved reliability, and scalability, edge services are an excellent option for businesses looking to take advantage of the latest technology and stay ahead of the curve. With Expedient’s scalable solution, businesses can start small and expand as needed, which makes them a highly cost-effective option for businesses of all sizes.
