Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged solutions, today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized its HE500 series with a 2019 CRN Tech Innovator Award in the Edge Infrastructure category.
These annual awards honor innovative hardware, software, and services. CRN editors evaluated hundreds of products, across 34 technology categories using criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features, and potential to help solution providers solve common IT challenges.
This award recognition validates the HE500 series’ approach, which is designed for organizations requiring reliable, easy to deploy, and affordable infrastructure at the edge of the network with a solution that is highly available, self-healing and simple to operate. 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. The series is highly-suited for remote multi-site deployments across industries, including healthcare, retail and manufacturing.
“CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards honor technology vendors who work tirelessly to craft ground-breaking solutions for end users, matching the speed of the channel’s evolution,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s award categories deserve congratulations for their success in driving IT innovation forward for solution providers and their customers.”
“One of the biggest barriers for IT teams and organizations is affordability. We launched the HE500 series with the idea that there should be no barrier to entry to affordable edge computing and HCI solutions,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “This award recognition validates our approach, and recognizes the HE500 series for making edge computing a financially viable and practical option for more organizations. Our ability to deliver HCI technology at a lower price point dramatically boosts edge computing capabilities and resources for businesses across the board.”
The CRN Tech Innovator award is an additional award win for Scale Computing in 2019, as the company was also recognized as a winner in the Converged/Hyperconverged Infrastructure and Desktop/Server Virtualization categories of the CRN® 2019 Annual Report Card (ARC) awards program, as well as a winner in all subcategories for both categories including: Product Innovation, Support, Partnership and Managed/Cloud Services.
Scale Computing’s award-winning 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. To learn more about HE500 series, visit: https://www.scalecomputing.com/products/hc3-edge
