Scale Computing Recognised for Second Consecutive Time in the Nov. 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualisation and hyperconverged solutions, today announced that it has been recognised by Gartner Inc. in the Nov. 2019 Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure. Scale Computing has been recognised in all editions of this Magic Quadrant since Gartner introduced it.

Gartner defines HCI as, “a category of scale-out software-integrated infrastructure that applies a modular approach to compute, network and storage on standard hardware.”

“Scale Computing was originally built for the SMB market, which is why we designed our product to be highly affordable, efficient and simple to operate. That simplicity and innovation is now being recognised across enterprises of all sizes, and it is an honour to be recognised again in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder, Scale Computing. “It’s not just in the centralised data centre that we are seeing success, distributed enterprise and edge customers are now finding value in a less complicated yet robust solution and because of this we are experiencing high customer demand. In the future, Scale Computing will continue to innovate to simplify IT operations.”

Scale Computing believes its acknowledgment validates its IT operations with its simple, innovative efficient HCI platform, HC3, which is supported by its independent peer validation via ratings, customer reviews and its five out of five-star rating through Gartner Peer Insights, as of 27 November 2019, based on 84 total ratings.

Specifically, Scale Computing customers said:
● “Looking for a hyperconverged solution? Make HC3 at the top of your list!” – Systems Administrator in the Healthcare Industry

● “Rock-solid virtualisation platform with excellent human support.” – IT Manager in the Education Industry

● “Great implementation, even better support.” – Systems Administrator in the Services Industry

Scale Computing believes that it is the top choice over its competitors for many customers due to the simplicity, efficiency and innovation of Scale Computing HC3. Specifically:
● Simplicity – Scale Computing customers rave about how simple it is to implement and deploy HC3. The simplicity of the self-healing platform, driven by automation and machine intelligence, allows Scale Computing customers to focus on other strategic projects rather than infrastructure maintenance.

● Efficiency – Scale Computing HC3 software eliminates the need for traditional virtualisation software, disaster recovery software, servers, and shared storage, replacing these with a fully integrated, highly available system for running applications.

● Innovation – Using patented HyperCore™ technology, the HC3 self-healing platform automatically identifies, mitigates, and corrects problems in the infrastructure in real-time, enabling applications to achieve maximum uptime even when local IT resources and staff are scarce. This innovation makes HC3 simple for IT teams to manage and administer.

Scale Computing is poised to take advantage of this market growth and mainstream adoption of HCI technology as its solutions continue to gain momentum in the edge computing market.
