Schneider crafts an affordable infrastructure management solution for Indian small businesses

Bangalore, India – March 21, 2013 – Global Energy Management specialists, Schneider Electric, have crafted  in India – with small Indian businesses in mind – a portfolio of solutions that cater to the physical infrastructure of in house data centres.

 ‘InfraStruxure’™ for IT in Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs)    is sensitive to the cost, space and energy constraints of   small  enterprises and  provides innovative enclosures which help replace  the traditional clutter of  small 1-4 enclosure server networks, with  environmentally friendly , smart enclosures  that blend into the office décor and could be mistaken for a seat or a small cabinet.


Explained Shrinivas Chebbi, Vice President, Schneider Electric, India & SAARC: “With the ever evolving IT infrastructure in the SMB space, end users are looking at solution mixes that can be easily installed, configured and integrated into either the existing IT infrastructure or new build outs. ISX for SMB IT meets the critical IT needs of small businesses allowing customers more time to focus on their core business.  Schneider Electric has taken a truly ‘glocal’ approach with ISX for SMB IT solution and is delivering industry-leading solutions through our extensive and innovative research and development. This is a customized India-for-India solution backed by extensive study of the Indian SMB IT user’s requirements. We believe it will be a compelling solution as it

 Choosing the best option for an SMB’s requirement is easy, as channel partners can simply select from a wide range of preconfigured solutions for various scenarios common to Indian SMBs, or design a tailored combination of UPS systems, server racks, Power Distribution Units (PDUs), cooling technologies, and software through the “ISX for India Configurator Tool”.
