We are proud to announce that Scale Computing has won the 2020 CRN Tech Innovator Award for Edge Infrastructure for our edge computing software and HE150 edge appliance!
This annual award program honors innovative vendors in the IT channel across 49 technology categories, in key areas ranging from cloud to security to storage to networking. CRN editors assessed hundreds of vendor products along multiple criteria, including uniqueness, key capabilities, technological competency, and addressing customer needs.
CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards celebrate the most groundbreaking products and services in the IT channel. These products are crafted by vendors that are channeling IT transformation and empowering solutions providers, and their customers, with groundbreaking offerings.
A Better Way to Power Edge Computing
The HE150 appliance combines Scale Computing’s self-healing platform for autonomously running applications at the edge, with a small, all-flash, NVMe storage-based compute appliance that delivers all of the simplicity, efficiency, and enterprise-ready virtualization associated with Scale Computing’s HC3 platform.
Built specifically for sites that need highly available infrastructure, the HE150 can be deployed almost anywhere, without requiring a rack or server closet. While taking up only the space needed to stack three smartphones, it provides a fully functional, integrated platform for running applications that includes high availability clustering, rolling upgrades and integrated data protection.
The cutting-edge construction and connectivity comes ready for industrial and IoT applications. The extremely small form factor consumes a small amount of power, offers ease of installation and an ability to rapidly add devices that scale up rapidly, along with the reliability needed for edge computing and IoT applications.
“The edge requires a combination of enterprise-grade application reliability, autonomous management and self healing due to the limited IT resources available at the edge, and a form factor that makes sense for the environment. This is a tricky combination, but we have delivered it with the award winning HE150,” commented Scott Loughmiller, Chief Product Officer and co-founder, Scale Computing. “As technology pushes its way into every part of business, the need for edge computing to support an application-driven world is expanding. The HE150 runs applications at maximum uptime where it was not feasible to before due to location and lack of IT resources; use cases include retail, grocery, educational facilities, local government offices, medical offices, ocean going vessels, and manufacturing shop floors - the possibilities are endless.”
