For those of us of a certain age, you might remember the Hall of Justice, the secret meeting spot where Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and a select few other superheroes would convene every Saturday morning – and only on Saturday morning – to strategize and collaborate on how to defeat the world’s most dastardly villains.
These days, it’s fair to say that there is an abundance of superheroes. Yet, for those of us doing battle every day in the IT trenches, we sadly lack a bat signal that can be flashed in the night sky when applications are inexplicably crashing, and backup systems are unresponsive. Alas, there are no masked heroes ready at a moment’s notice to swoop in to troubleshoot issues and untangle the mess found in today’s edge computing environments.
But what if there was?
This is why all of us here at Scale Computing are excited to announce the release of The EdgeSlayer Chronicles: On the Edge of Disaster, a superhero-inspired comic book that tells the story of a small business buckling under the weight of its legacy infrastructure as they look to scale their operations and win market share.
The story’s brave protagonists know that in order to keep expanding their IT operations, they’re going to need to get a handle on their growing number of edge computing locations – and do so fast before a devastating disruption destroys everything that they’ve spent years building.
To protect their business, an epic battle ensues between the HyperCorps team and the supervillain CopyCat, a felonious feline intent on destroying the resilience of this fast-growing enterprise by systematically targeting their backup images with the insidious ‘backwards ball.’
And who exactly is this EdgeSlayer, you ask? Possessing the agility of Hawkeye, the adaptability of Black Widow, the automated healing powers of Deadpool, EdgeSlayer and her sidekick Hyperman are here to help businesses of all sizes deploy and manage their edge computing systems and keep it all running no matter what any rogue agents might have in store.
As Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben was fond of saying, “with great power comes great responsibility.” EdgeSlayer would likely agree with the sentiment but would probably also add that, “with great responsibility, it sure helps to have some superpowers.”
To see how EdgeSlayer and the rest of the HyperCorps team help to simplify the deployment and management of modern edge infrastructure, download the free comic book or send a bat signal to the Scale Computing sales team to schedule a demo.
