INDIANAPOLIS, USA. and STOCKHOLM, SWE. – August 16, 2022 - Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, and Avassa, a provider of an application-centric edge orchestration platform, announced today that they have entered into a partnership to offer a complete full-stack solution for edge environments.
Scale Computing edge solutions are designed to provide customers with an autonomous infrastructure that can run modern containerized applications alongside legacy applications as virtual machines. This can help users centrally monitor and manage their fleet of distributed infrastructure and applications through the entire lifecycle—from deployment and maintenance updates to service level monitoring and problem remediation.
Avassa is an application orchestration solution created for the edge. With Avassa, users extend the cloud capabilities they already master to their distributed edge environment. Together, Scale Computing and Avassa create an edge-native offer, covering everything from hardware to applications.
“We’ve been fans of Scale Computing from the start, and we’re delighted to partner up with them in a common passion for creating best-in-class edge computing solutions. The edge creates value with comprehensive IT solutions, and with Scale Computing’s expertise in distributed infrastructure, they’re a great complement to our application-centric solution for secure and robust edge application lifecycle management,” says Carl Moberg, CTO of Avassa.
Companies with a need to modernize and increase efficiency in their edge environments can get a complete solution from these collaborative solutions, utilizing Scale Computing for servers, storage, and virtualization and Avassa for application lifecycle management and observability. Avassa also integrates with Scale Computing Fleet Manager for container management.
“Cloud computing changed our expectations of digital agility. Organizations augmented or replaced traditional data centers with cloud environments to better access the compute resources when they needed them. Designing a solution for scalable and cloud-like hosting of applications across edge infrastructure brings new requirements,” said Craig Theriac, VP, Product Management of Scale Computing. “Scale Computing and Avassa allow customers to run multiple applications on the same platform, with legacy VMs alongside containerized applications. Together with Avassa, customers can dynamically create, update, and manage applications in containerized environments using targeted deployments, health and behavior observability and complete lifecycle management. We are excited about the possibilities this partnership brings our customers.”
Just because applications are running at the edge does not mean your company needs a new operations stack. Avassa empowers companies to bridge the gap between modern containerized applications development and operations and distributed edge infrastructure. With its application orchestration platform for the edge, Avassa enables businesses to manage the lifecycle of edge applications efficiently, securely, and at the speed of software. Founded in 2020 and based in Stockholm, Sweden, Avassa aims to unlock the cloud operating model for edge applications everywhere and was named a Gartner® Cool Vendor in Edge Computing 2022.
