Indianapolis, December 07, 2016 — Scale Computing, the market leader in hyperconverged storage, server and virtualization solutions for midsized companies, today announced that it has joined the Brocade Strategic Collaboration Program as part of the Storage and Hyperconverged alliance to extend the reach of hyperconverged infrastructure solutions from the SMB through the enterprise.
The Strategic Collaboration Program fosters an open, ecosystem-driven approach to help customers build New IP networks that can serve as a platform for innovation and for developing, delivering and securing new applications. By partnering with Brocade, Scale Computing is positioned to offer enterprises turnkey HC3 solutions leveraging Brocade networking technology. This helps ensure organizations of all sizes are positioned to receive the benefits of simplicity, high availability, scalability and cost that hyperconvergence provides.
“We’re excited that Scale Computing joined the Brocade Strategic Collaboration Program which enables customers to tap into a pool of best-in-class technologies from leading vendors,” said Andrew Coward, vice president of strategy at Brocade. “Together, we plan to offer the economic benefits of hyperconvergence solutions while delivering the performance, reliability, and scalability that enterprises require.”
Scale Computing’s HC3 platform brings storage, servers, virtualization and management together in a single, comprehensive system. With no virtualization software to license and no external storage to buy, HC3 products lower out-of-pocket costs and radically simplify the infrastructure needed to keep applications running. HC3 products make the deployment and management of a highly available and scalable infrastructure as easy to manage as a single server.
“HC3 solutions have been specifically built for easy deployment into environments where applications need high availability rather than high costs and complexity,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “Our customers trust us to recommend the right solutions for their environments. Those recommendations extend beyond gear with our name on it because they expect us to provide a complete solution. As far as our customers are concerned our brand is Trust.”
