Description:

IT departments with computing needs at the edge typically focus their attention on specifying the IT stack that meets business requirements. The physical infrastructure that supports this IT stack tends to get less attention, which increases risk of downtime, project delays, and cost overruns. This paper provides practical guidance on preparing your edge sites including how to assess the site’s constraints as well as, power, cooling, and network connectivity needs. It also provides guidance on starting up the system. The focus of this paper is on small server rooms and branch offices with up to 10kW of IT load.
