Ultrastar Edge-MR Ruggedized Edge Server
from Western Digital



High Performance Edge Server Designed for Harsh Environments

The ability to have low-latency processing in harsh environments is a game changer that can increase responsiveness, maximize efficiency and enable faster decision making. Organizations that can deliver data center cloud-like services even when a network connection may be expensive, intermittent or non-existent have a real tactical advantage over their opponents.

Western Digital Ultrastar Edge-MR is a militarized and ruggedized high-performance edge server that enables organizations to deploy remote data capture and analytics in harsh environments. The ruggedized shell with internal suspension protects the server from shock and vibration and enables processing data closer to where it is generated. Remote processing reduces the amount of traffic on network backbones, enables faster decision making and helps provide a strategic advantage.
