The edge is rising. As cities become smarter, more cars drive themselves, and tech becomes more ingrained than ever into our day-to-day lives, data is moving away from the datacenter and towards the edge. 

The ability to process data effectively at the edge requires the same technology that is seen in the datacenter. The edge still benefits from hyperconverged infrastructure and ways of preventing unplanned downtime. However, where many organizations have gone wrong is by using the same technology that is found in the datacenter, and replicating it in an edge site. 

It is important to build redundancy and scalability into an edge site, but it does not require the all-flash, super expensive hardware that you find in the datacenter. As of this year, it’s as easy as deploying two of the new Lenovo ThinkSystems SE350 Edge Servers with SvSAN. 

The SE350 is specifically designed for the edge. Not only does it have a remarkably light footprint, but it is designed to handle temperatures 0° to 55°C, as well as tolerate locations with high levels of dust and vibration—such as construction site trailers and manufacturing floors. It can be deployed equally well in a traditional office or branch location due to its office-friendly acoustics. The half-width, short-depth, 1U SE350 can be installed almost anywhere: hung on a wall, stacked on a shelf, or mounted in a rack.

StorMagic SvSAN perfectly compliments the SE350. This lightweight virtual SAN can enable high availability on two SE350 servers, making it the perfect solution for remote, branch and edge locations. Set it, forget it, and manage it remotely from one centralized location.
