New Alliance Brings Software-Defined Power to the Edge

We are pleased to announce a technology alliance with EDJX and ITRenew to bring industry leading TCO and sustainability to the edge. As part of the alliance, our Software-Defined Power® (SDP) platform will be implemented into EDJX’s EdjBlock® – a solution that makes it easier to bring workloads and applications closer to end-users and connected things. EdjBlock is a pre-integrated edge computing infrastructure enabling rapid deployment and monetization of a distributed content delivery network (CDN) and edge computing services for EDJX customers and partners on the EDJX platform. ITRenew, the global leader in Circular Cloud and sustainable data center infrastructure, is equipping the platform with its Sesame rack-scale compute and storage solutions, optimized for edge computing and ready to plug-and-play.

According to John Cowan, EDJX’s founder and CEO, “EDJX is building a sustainable edge; a software-enabled planet-scale platform that combines the EDJX serverless platform with integrated rack-scale server solutions by ITRenew, equipped with VPS’ ICE Switches, enabling software-defined power that will run in any data center.” Our CEO, Dean Nelson amplified this point noting, “The most sustainable data center is one that is never built. We all want every click to improve the future. Our Intelligent Control of Energy® (ICE), enabled through the VPS ICE Switch in the EdjBlock, unlocks stranded power capacity in data centers. By partnering with EDJX and ITRenew, we’re not only realigning the IT supply chain toward inherent environmental sustainability, we’re enabling existing data centers to increase the utilization of the power they have already built.”

According to a recent MarketsandMarkets report, the global edge computing market will grow from $3.6 billion in 2020 to $15.7 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 34.1%. Per EDJX’s press announcement…The EdjBlock offering comes at a moment when the growth of data and the need to build real-time capabilities is driving unprecedented demand for computing capacity at the edge. Scaling efficiently is more important than ever, as is a sustainable approach. ITRenew’s circular economic model brings compute & storage solutions to the platform that reduces TCO, e-waste and CO2 impact and requires no assembly, guesswork, or engineering to deploy. We’re very excited to be part of this solution!
