Indianapolis – December 22, 2020 - Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualisation and hyperconverged solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Pedab Group AB, a leading distributor in IT solutions and services throughout Nordics, Baltics and France. The agreement will enable Pedab Group and its subsidiaries to offer Scale Computing’s award-winning HC3 series to its channel partners across the region.
Pedab will work with its partners to take advantage of Scale Computing’s full suite of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and edge computing solutions, filling a previously significant gap in the market.
With a built-in hypervisor, Scale Computing’s HC3 customers have no need for third-party components or licensing.

This makes the technology ideal for industries that require IT infrastructure with high performance and minimal management.
The partnership will enable more businesses in the region to build affordable, high-performance HCI and edge solutions where existing technologies were frequently too complex and expensive to meet their needs. Pedab benefits from the sales, technical and commercial training that Scale Computing provides within its channel partner program. The team has undergone a thorough onboarding process involving designing a sales and marketing strategy and identifying key customers.
