Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged solutions, closed out a record-breaking sales year in 2018 with hundreds of new customers and successful installations, major funding and a portfolio of new partnerships that is adding fuel to the company’s blistering growth around the world.
Topping off last year’s news was significant funding from new and existing investors, a new global partnership and joint product with Lenovo for an edge infrastructure solution on Lenovo servers, and a partnership with APC by Schneider Electric to deliver the Data Center in a Box solution. These milestones are driving Scale Computing’s growth worldwide with retailers, distributed enterprises and SMBs. The company also made customers successful in its first full year of its partnership with Google on the joint hybrid-cloud solution, HC3 Cloud Unity, to move application workloads freely in the cloud or on-premises for disaster recovery.
“We have secured the financial and structural foundation to take Scale Computing’s edge computing software platform to all new levels,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “We are proud to be recognized as the top hyperconverged solution for many organizations, as evidenced by our high ratings and reviews as a top hyperconvergence solutions provider on Gartner Peer Insights, Spiceworks, TechValidate and TrustRadius. Customers want to reduce both complexity and cost from their IT infrastructure, and Scale Computing has the proven solution to solve these customer problems and continue our worldwide growth.”
