INSPUR LISTED AS A REPRESENTATIVE VENDOR IN 2022 GARTNER® MARKET GUIDE FOR EDGE COMPUTING
Inspur included as a representative supplier of Edge Computing Server Solutions for its Inspur EIS200 Edge Microserver product
Inspur, a Leading IT Infrastructure Solution Provider, Listed as a Representative Vendor in Edge Computing Server Solutions in 2022 Market Guide for Edge Computing published by Gartner.
This was the first time that Gartner published Market Guide for Edge Computing (“Market Guide”). . “I&O leaders can use this market guide to understand the many facets of edge computing solutions, how vendors will create strategies and offerings to support edge computing, and where this market is headed.” evolving. ”
The market guide notes that “edge computing is pushing a variety of vendors into a new market.” According to Gartner, “Edge computing consists of a number of overlapping submarkets that are still forming. Gartner has identified eight submarkets: edge computing server solutions, edge management and orchestration, IoT platforms, edge data management, edge analytics and machine learning, edge communications infrastructure, CDN edge data centers and services, and edge vertical industry solutions. »
The market guide also divides the edge computing market into three phases. In Phase 1, “At the broadest level, edge computing solutions tend to be part of an enterprise digital transformation (eg, Industry 4.0 in manufacturing or the retail store of the future). Currently, solutions are usually led by consultants or systems integrators (who often build around their own frameworks). However, edge computing solutions are often assembled today as custom “first-of-its-kind” solutions. In Phase 2, “Once enterprises have begun to deploy solutions for specific edge computing use cases, they inevitably identify new use cases and new workloads for their environments that have other edge computing requirements (low latency, high volume local data, disconnect tolerance, data privacy). Within vertical industries, this expansion will require similar solutions, resulting in vertically oriented edge computing suites and packages. In Phase 3, “many technology requirements for edge computing will span verticals. Rather than investing in these technologies and services, vendors focused on specific vertical industries will eventually leverage horizontal solutions. Requirements within enterprises will also extend from the customer storefront to the edge of the factory and the edge of the workplace, placing more demands on holistic and horizontal processes and technologies to improve integration. and safety, and reduce costs. Edge computing strategies and architectures will drive the edge computing market in Phase 3.” Gartner points out that “forward-thinking enterprises today are focusing on edge computing strategies and architectures , but they are not yet the main buyers in the edge computing market. As the strategy, scalability, and architectures for edge computing mature, the edge computing market will morph and resolve into specific submarkets and ecosystems of partners providing holistic solutions. .
Inspur Information is the world’s leading IT infrastructure provider. Faced with the complex and diverse business demands of edge computing users, it leads the market by helping to formulate carrier-oriented design standards for edge servers. Not so long ago, Inspur Information launched its optional Edge Computing (ECOM) module that caters to manufacturing, transportation and other diverse and specialized demands, to constantly push product maturity and advanced computing solutions.
EIS800 is a micro edge server based on ECOM standard. It can be adjusted in different forms, such as indoor, outdoor and micro-central nodes for multiple scenarios as well as complex and demanding environments. Such flexible scalability is ideal for meeting the diverse requirements found in different vertical industries. For example, in retail stores, the micro edge server indoor node has a compact size and can effectively help manage real-time sales data. An outdoor node with its IP65-rated enclosure can operate in an ambient temperature of -40°C to +70°C (-40°F to +158°F). It can also work stably in smart traffic intersections outdoors. A micro-central node supports multiple I/O expansion options and flexible deployment. It can either be deployed at a micro office center level by stacking multiple nodes, or it can be deployed at a micro cabinet center level by installing two connected nodes, supporting more complex data management scenarios. smart factories.
In addition, Inspur Information has developed its hardware-integrated edge software solutions covering edge servers, operating systems and micromodule data centers, and is constantly improving its vertical industry partnerships and ecosystem. Currently, advanced IT products and solutions developed by Inspur Information and its partners have been widely applied in manufacturing, energy, transportation and other industrial scenarios. Notable projects include a global bearing giant’s smart factory, Asia’s largest offshore wind farm and the establishment of smart parking with the Tokyo Institute of Technology.
