Acquires 900th customer ─ surpassing the customer base of its closest competitor by a wide margin
Scale Computing, the leading provider of hyperconverged solutions, today announced a record quarter in Q2 2014, with 30% growth over the previous quarter. In addition, Scale Computing’s Q2 sales pipeline grew by over 50% versus the previous quarter.
As a result of its Q2 record sales, Scale Computing has now sold its HC3 products to over 900 customers, surpassing the number of customers of its closest competitor by a wide margin. These 900 customers represent over 3500 HC3 appliances. New customers in Q2 include Coral Industries, Inc., Haynes International, Jackson Civil Engineering, and Oxford University, among others. The Company has grown its customer base with the support of over $50M in funding received from outside investors.
The Company attributes its growth to customers looking to simplify their data center infrastructure, with most of those customers switching workloads to the HC3 platform from VMware. The Q2 sales growth is also the result of Scale Computing’s exceptional customer service, which has maintained a world-class Net Promoter Score of above 70 for the past six quarters.
“We have achieved this tremendous traction as small-to-medium companies realize the benefits of the simplicity and the cost-saving ROI offered by the HC3 platform,” said Jeff Ready, CEO at Scale Computing. “We continue to see new customers adopt the HC3 appliance platform as a comprehensive, easy-to-manage alternative to the complexity of the traditional VMware environment.”
“Scale Computing is on a rapid trajectory with the potential to become a major supplier of standard infrastructure for SMBs and beyond,” said Arun Taneja, founder and consulting analyst at Taneja Group. “Scale Computing offers a uniquely simple, scalable, yet cost-effective solution combining servers, storage and virtualization in a single appliance, making it an attractive option for achieving the benefits of the cloud.”
“The Scale Computing HC3 hyperconvergence platform does exactly what we need it to do, and with absolutely no single point of failure,” said Justin Corneby, IT Manager at Jackson Civil Engineering. “In addition to high availability, the HC3 offers tremendously easy scalability. All we have to do is add another node and we’re off and running.”
Scale Computing integrates storage, servers, and virtualization software into an all-in-one appliance based system that is scalable, self-healing and as easy to manage as a single server. Using industry standard components, the HC3™ appliances install in under an hour, and can be expanded and upgraded with no downtime. High availability insulates the user from any disk or server failure and a unified management capability driven by the patented Ultra-Easy Hypercore Software™, efficiently integrates all functionality. The result is a data center solution that reduces operational complexity, allows a faster response to business issues, and dramatically reduces costs.
