01.02.2013: Network Computing: The first monkey wrench is the rise in non-structured data (that is, data that doesn't reside in a relational database). The basic label for this category is big data, but the category also covers use cases such as online archiving and other data-driven intelligence applications. The requirements around this category include simplicity, low cost and high capacity.

09.05.2012: TechWorld: Businesses with less than 1,000 employees get special attention next week at VMware's VMworld conference in San Francisco where
09.04.2012: The DataCenter Journal: Scale Computing, a clustered storage vendor has announced upgrades to its storage cluster which now includes compute resources and delivers easier management and allocation of storage and memory along with reduction in costs. These compute resources are dedicated to apps and a hypervisor component. The new HC3 update is being promoted as infrastructure in a box. The company states that this appliance can do away with the need to buy shared storage, virtualization software and external servers. This also reduces the complexity of the virtualization ecosystem. The HC3 also has a virtualization tab which can be found in the management console.
09.04.2012: eChannelLine: Indianapolis-based Scale Computing, which has been making clustered storage solutions for the virtualization and archiving needs of the SME space, is announcing it is broadening its footprint in the datacenter with HC³. HC³ integrates Scale's storage with servers and virtualization into a single cluster for applications.
09.04.2012: Stephen Foskett - Pack Rat: “Convergence” is a hot topic today but, like so many buzzwords, the term takes on many different meanings. But let’s consider converged infrastructure for a moment – systems that seamlessly combine server and storage. A variety of offerings can be called “converged”, from “stacks” of equipment curated by major vendors and resellers to integrated boxes with everything inside. Scale Computing is the latest company to join the ranks of the latter, introducing a “hyper-converged” solution combining a server hypervisor and scale-out storage software in a simple 1U chassis.
09.04.2012: InformationWeek: Scale Computing is introducing a new mid-range storage system which converges servers, virtualization, networking, and storage. HC3 consists of purpose-built servers and storage nodes, as well as virtualization software and virtual 1-Gbps and 10-Gbps Ethernet network adapters for connectivity. They support Windows Server or Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
09.04.2012: Juku: Scale Computing just announced their new software upgrade to ICOS that brings server virtualization capabilities to their scale out storage. (yes, you read it right, it’ll be available to existing customers too).
09.04.2012: TechTarget: Launched at VMworld 2012 here, HC3 runs in clusters of three or more nodes. Each node includes Red Hat Inc.'s KVM hypervisor built in; no additional virtual machine licenses are required. With the HC3, Scale is targeting midsize companies with small IT staffs, according to CEO Jeff Ready.
09.04.2012: Wahl Network: I’ve been witness to a number of converged infrastructure systems at the large corporate and enterprise scale environments. These solutions are typically quite robust in nature, requiring a number of disciplines to implement and maintain. You’ll most likely need a background in a variety of areas, such as blades, SAN, virtualization, and route / switch networking in order to be successful with a deployment. A larger corporation or enterprise scale environment will have these skill sets on staff, or have a means to provide them on an ad-hoc basis (via consultants or contract employment).
09.04.2012: Virtual Bill: Scale Computing… the company with a name that never really made sense… until today. You see, Scale Computing began in 2007 as a storage company. Their most recent product lines, the M Series and S Series products, utilized GPFS (licensed through IBM) to provide a clustered filesystem for data consumption. Need more space… just add a new node and let the cluster work its magic. Combine the simplicity of the cluster file system with the creation of a highly usable web-based management utility, and you get a simple and powerful storage system.
09.04.2012: InfoWorld: Clustered storage vendor Scale Computing today upgraded its scale-out storage cluster to include compute resources dedicated to applications and a hypervisor component that allows storage and memory to be easily managed and allocated.
