Edge computing

Experience cutting-edge computing everywhere

IoT. Intelligence. Convenience. Smart Devices.

With edge computing, processing power comes closer to where it is needed the most. But the edge is challenging. Exposed to the elements and often located in places hard to reach, edge devices require efficiency, ruggedness and power.

Are your devices ready for life on the edge?

Intelligent edge. Rugged edge.

The era of edge computing is upon us. According to research by Gartner, 75 percent of data will be processed outside traditional centralized data centers and the cloud by 2025.

This represents a paradigm shift for computing as we know it. As more and more data get generated and processed in edge devices that also demands ever-smarter and more powerful hardware on the edge.

The rise of edge computing promises a smarter and more convenient life for consumers and a new era of innovation and increased efficiency for corporations. And while the benefits are many, the advent of edge computing also presents a monumental challenge: how do you build future-proof edge infrastructure that is up for the task today and will not incur unexpected costs in the future?

With so many devices across so many locations, it is paramount that devices not only provide enough performance to carry out their tasks but also that they are reliable, energy-efficient, and long-lasting. Otherwise, an investment in the future of edge computing can quickly turn into a costly venture with little upside.

Ensuring equipment and component toughness is especially important in rugged edge applications where edge devices are exposed to even harsher environments and challenges, for example in industrial settings or remote locations in harsh climates.

Key challenges

Limited space, unlimited power

Edge devices are often compact but require high-performing components to carry out their increasingly complex tasks. 

Long-term economic feasibility

Edge infrastructure is built for the long haul, requiring devices to remain fully functional with minimal downtime to be a worthwhile investment.

Tough working environments

Often exposed to challenging outdoor conditions, tough industrial environments and remote settings, edge devices must be engineered with ruggedness as a priority.

Recommended technologies

8

Adaptive Thermal Control

Patented technology that improves device reliability and keeps sustained performance at the highest possible level while preventing overheating.

1

Wide temperature

Uncompromised wide-temperature support made possible by industrial design, careful BOM selection, as well as stringent in-house manufacturing and validation.

7

Power loss protection

In addition to standard firmware algorithm-based sudden power loss protection, tantalum capacitors are available as an optional feature to ensure that all in-flight data are safely stored in the event of a power failure.

12

Configurable performance & power

Enables the storage device's power consumption and thermal profile to be modified to achieve the highest performance-to-thermal and performance-to-power ratios.

17

Multiple firmware backup

Ensures that, in the unlikely event of a firmware image corruption, backups are readily available and the corrupted image is automatically repaired, restoring the system back to normal.
