Two years after it was spun out of Emerson, Vertiv is focused on the edge computing opportunity, and retooling for a more agile data center landscape.
Formerly known as Emerson Network Power, Vertiv is one of the data center market’s largest vendors for power and cooling solutions. Their acquisition by Platinum Equity Group in 2016 has allowed them to respond to changes in how data centers are built, calling for greater power and cooling requirements while maintaining efficiency.

Several data center startups view edge computing as part of a fundamental shift in Internet architecture, moving network interconnection points from the core of the Internet to its outer perimeter.
The detect-and-respond security model requires organizations to build capabilities from the lowest levels and deploy solutions that can distribute the detection, obfuscation and isolation throughout their networks. This approach applies to sensors and IoT devices, controllers in connected equipment, and at all gateway and bridge points to expand the ability to monitor their equipment and network in real-time.
In our 12th DCF Data Center Executive Roundtable, thought leaders debate the status of hyperscale data centers, DCIM, lithium-ion batteries and underwater data centers.
Is Microsoft’s underwater data center project brilliant or crazy? Also, are there other examples of “outside the box” data center innovation that bear watching? Our Executive Roundtable weighs in.
Lithium-ion batteries, which have powered mobile devices for years, are gaining traction in the market for data center UPS systems.
What’s the state of data center management software in the age of cloud computing? In our DCF Executive Roundtable, thought leaders from Digital Realty, Vertiv and BASELAYER provide their take.
In our Executive Roundtable, thought leaders from Digital Realty, Vertiv and BASELAYER debate data center trends. Today: The emergence of hyperscale computing as a separate market segment.
The lithium-ion battery (LIB) offers many benefits when used in conjunction with data center uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. Still, data center professionals have legitimate questions about the operational and safety aspects of this emerging technology and how it compares to traditional valve-regulated, lead-acid (VRLA) batteries. Download the new white paper from Vertiv that addresses common questions about the use of lithium-ion batteries in the critical space.
Over the last several years, “edge computing” has become one of the most talked about trends in IT, and for good reason. Nearly every industry is recognizing the limitations of supporting users and emerging technologies through centralized IT infrastructures and is pushing storage and computing closer to users and devices. Download the new white paper from Vertiv to learn more about edge computing and the four edge archetypes the company has identified.
