Rittal partners with Atos and Siemens for Edge and IoT initiatives

Joint solutions will allow easy and fast implementation of IT infrastructures with powerful edge data centres
Rittal forms global strategic partnership with Atos and Siemens

4 July 2019

Rittal has formed a global strategic partnership with Atos and Siemens to develop intelligent edge data centre solutions for smart industries, smart cities, smart retail, energy and utility companies and public sector organisations.

A highly configurable data centre solution, the Intelligent Edge Data Centre (IEDC) enables companies to process IoT data in real-time. By using MindSphere, BullSequana edge computing server and the BullSequana S server, entire value chains can be optimised with an advanced, data-analytics solution.

The IECD comes in different performance classes, ranging from a wall box or single IT rack, to a powerful, scalable data centre container.




For companies undergoing digital transformation and processing large amounts of real-time data, the IECD is an ideal tool. It can be applied across a range of sectors, from smart retail to smart healthcare, as well as in smart cities. It can also facilitate 5G mobile networks.

A secure, standardised, industrialised solution, the IECD runs autonomously in non-data centre environments, meaning white room or local IT teams are not needed. IoT-dedicated applications can run in the cloud or on premises.

It embeds a BullSequana Edge server for computer vision and IoT datalake from Atos, Atos Codex CIS software, which then forms the IoT backbone, but it can also interconnect several other sensors within a single IEDC.

It can also be interconnected to establish a swarm as a meshed edge data centre network. This enables the progressive deployment of advanced business applications and solutions. Relevant data of each node of the network is available within top-level dashboards used for a deep insight by monitoring, controlling and optimisation using advanced analytics.
