Scale Computing has been named as an HCI vendor in the recent IDC Perspective report, “Hyperconverged Infrastructure Use Will Continue to Grow in Edge Environments.” The report showcases profiles of companies offering edge-specific products and features, as well as a comparison of various deployment options from HCI vendors. The research shares:
- Why HCI systems have become a popular alternative to the traditional three-tier IT architectural approach of discrete storage, compute, and networking resources, often requiring skilled IT staff to provision, operate, and maintain.
- How hyperconverged infrastructure systems that consolidate virtualization, compute, storage, and networking technologies into a single system under common management, can offer significant advantages to enterprises facing IT staffing challenges in edge environments.
- Advice and recommendations from IDC for organizations looking to purchase and deploy HCI solutions at the edge.
HCI at the Edge
There is a growing demand for applications to run outside the cloud or data center, close to where they are used by people, devices, and IoT technologies. But tools optimized for the cloud or traditional data centers are often overly complex, too costly, and not powerful enough to manage edge workloads and deliver the benefits of edge computing. Further, many edge locations face space constraints, harsh environmental conditions, and lack IT staff to effectively maintain the infrastructure.
This is where hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions that are simpler to manage and operate — like Scale Computing Platform and SC//HyperCore — shine, allowing enterprises to realize immediate benefits from enhanced performance and simplified management. Organizations are catching on. In fact, IDC's EdgeView research reports that 67% of organizations plan to invest more in edge resources through 2023.
Scale Computing Platform combines simplicity, high availability, and scalability in a single, easy-to-manage edge computing platform to replace existing infrastructure and run applications. SC//HyperCore HCI software brings hypervisor, compute, storage, and networking technologies into a single fully-integrated platform, saving time and valuable resources. The same innovative software and simple user interface power a user’s infrastructure, regardless of their hardware configuration. Using patented HyperCore™ technology, the award-winning, self-healing platform identifies, reduces, and corrects problems in real-time.
