Last year, Rittal TS Enclosures and LCP high density cooling products were selected as the infrastructure solution for a single event - the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military, sponsored this first ever Cyber Grand Challenge (CGC).
Rittal Corporation teamed up with Edge Mission Critical Systems (Edge MCS) to support their turnkey modular data solutions for edge network applications marketed as the Binary Bunker. In the Binary Bunkers they build, Edge MCS employs Rittal products for enclosures, racking, and cooling.
As the Internet of Things (IoT) expands, massive amounts of data and content require faster processing and better security. Products like the Binary Bunker become more appealing than large capital expenditures on conventional data center platforms. For savvy companies, edge computing allows them to get closer to the data, improving speed, performance, productivity and security at a fraction of the cost of a conventional data center. The prefabricated modular data centers offered by Edge MCS employ lightweight concrete for strength, long life, and environmental stability. With their triple
In the age of the Internet of Things and a world that is globally connected, cybersecurity – the need to safeguard information from an unending deluge of threats – has become a key technology challenge in the 21st Century. DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, has recognized the dangers posed by cyber warfare from individual hackers to government-sponsored agencies.
