It's a great day to be in Texas! We have been invited by our partner, Mako Networks, to be part of their booth team at FSTEC 2022, the top food service technology conference to learn about the latest innovations and connect with peers and potential partners. Mako Networks is a Gold Sponsor at FSTEC 2022 with the event starting today and going through Wednesday at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas.
The agenda for this conference has wall-to-wall marquee speakers from Starbucks, White Castle, YUM! Brands, Dog Haus, TGI Friday's, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers - all our favorites. Technology has a larger-than-ever role in restaurants today, so having the right tools and expertise is critical to the success of the business.
Hospitality IT leaders are finding that edge computing is the technology platform they need to cultivate more seamless, personalized customer experiences and spend less time managing infrastructure. Edge computing allows them to have an adaptable infrastructure that streamlines restaurant IT operations at the storefront level, and provides major opportunities to enhance the consumer experience while also lowering costs. Restaurants can run their existing business applications—such as point of sale, inventory management, video security, and new IoT transformative applications—on a common platform.
Scale Computing and Mako Networks have been working to make organizations in the hospitality business successful for years on parallel tracks. Now, we have decided to work together to provide an edge computing environment that allows IT to modernize distributed IT infrastructure and networking while also minimizing risk.
Scale Computing provides an edge computing platform that is easy to use, easy to manage, and easy to deploy. The Scale Computing Platform brings simplicity and scalability together, replacing the existing infrastructure, and providing high availability for running VMs in a single, easy-to-manage platform. Regardless of your hardware requirements, the same innovative software and simple user interface give you the power to run infrastructure efficiently at the edge.
The Mako System is a PCI-certified, cloud-managed, carrier-independent networking solution that makes it easy to connect and manage thousands of global sites in a high-performance business network that is secure, reliable, scalable and cost-effective. It consists of two parts: the Mako CMS management application and a range of managed Mako devices.
If your restaurants use wireless POS tablets, third-party loyalty programs, loT sensor monitoring or any other connected technology, you need to be certain that sensitive data is always handled securely and that critical connections are always available to keep your operations running seamlessly. Of course, your modern network must also provide high-throughput, low-latency performance.
What you need is the freedom to run applications on-premises when you need to, with the operational simplicity and performance you get from the cloud. We believe that together, Mako Networks and Scale Computing can bring that to you.
The Mako Networks team at FSTEC 2022 include Michael Cole and Brian Burks. From Scale Computing please come by to meet Kevin Holmes. Visit us at Booth 826 and enter for a chance to win a Yeti Tundra Haul® Wheeled Cooler!
