The delivery of truly differentiated offerings that create opportunities for partners during this unprecedented period is the crowning achievement of our 2020 Tech Innovators.

Edge Infrastructure


Scale Computing HE150

With its HE150, Scale Computing provides a fully functional hyperconverged infrastructure offering aimed at serving smaller workload requirements. The HE150 is a compact-size, all-flash, NVMe storage-based compute appliance that can provide improved availability and power efficiency compared with 1U server offerings in edge environments. Notably, Scale Computing is leveraging Intel NUC mini PCs for the HE150 instead of traditional 1U servers. Key features for MSPs include highly available virtual machines that can be created in minutes; no single point of failure; multisite management; and self-healing machine intelligence. The HE150 also works seamlessly with Scale Computing’s HC3 virtualization platform.


APC by Schneider Electric - 6U Wall Mount EcoStruxure Micro Data Center

The 6U Wall Mount EcoStruxure Micro Data Center from APC by Schneider Electric is an edge computing offering that delivers high resiliency with a compact footprint. The micro data enables deployment of server and networking equipment at the edge without taking up any floor space, as it only extends 14 inches off the wall. Advanced security options include camera monitoring, keylock doors and intrusion detection.

Eaton MiniRaQ

The Eaton MiniRaQ is a vertical wall-mount rack enclosure for edge IT and power management equipment that’s capable of safely mounting equipment up to 35 inches in length as well as supporting up to 400 pounds. The system features a compact footprint for fitting into confined spaces, and the MiniRaQ is also compatible with a variety of Eaton UPS systems.


The HPE Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform) provides a cloud-native approach for unifying, automating and protecting edge environments. Core components include AIOps, zero-trust network security and a unified infrastructure for campus, data center, branch and remote workers. The platform continuously analyzes data across domains, identifies anomalies and self-optimizes, while providing visibility and security for unknown devices on the network.

Vertiv Liebert PSI5

With the Liebert PSI5 Lithium-Ion UPS, Vertiv is offering a single-phase uninterruptible power supply with lithium-ion batteries for the first time. The use of lithium-ion enables extended runtime and reduced maintenance, and the system is available in a compact 2U rackmount/tower convertible configuration—all of which make the Liebert PSI5 an ideal option for edge deployments.
