Designed for organizations requiring reliable, easy to deploy, and affordable infrastructure at the edge of the network, the HE500 series delivers a highly available, self-healing and simple to operate solution.
The HE500 series is a set of right-sized HCI appliances that provide enterprise-class features to remote locations and boost edge computing capabilities with disaster recovery. Each HE500 appliance model can be deployed quickly, managed locally or remotely, and is fitted with self-healing technology to provide almost instant failover and minimal downtime. In addition, the HE500 series provides a low-cost option for disaster recovery infrastructure that is easy to deploy, easy-to-use, and runs disaster recovery workloads reliably.
HE500 series appliances are more light-weight than the other appliances in the HC1000 and HC5000 series that Scale Computing offers today, and they fully enable the delivery of maximum HCI functionality. Each of the five models in the HE500 series is pre-installed with Scale Computing’s HC3 HyperCore Software, providing an intelligent and automated layer that results in simple to operate functionality and the necessary performance to meet modern edge computing requirements.
Introducing the Scale HE500 Hyperconverged Appliance Series for Edge Computing Environments
“Unlike other HCI solutions that reserve large compute resources to run their Virtual Storage Appliances, the HE500 series takes advantage of the efficient, hypervisor-embedded HC3 storage stack to free up RAM and CPU for running workloads. This dramatically lowers the hardware and software investment needed to provide high availability to edge workloads,” said Eric Slack, senior analyst, Evaluator Group.
