INDIANAPOLIS - December 7, 2021 - Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, today announced that Data Center Dynamics has named the company’s work with Ahold Delhaize NV and Econocom Products & Solutions as a finalist in the 2021 DCD>Awards, in the Edge Data Center Project of the Year category.
According to DCD, the edge is now moving from the era of promise to the era of delivery. Driven by higher standards of connectivity and increasing sophistication of systems and hardware, the Edge Data Center Project of the Year award category seeks to feature how edge is evolving and diversifying while redefining the opportunities that technology can represent.
Ahold Delhaize, a world-leading food retailer with 6,700 stores worldwide, needed a complete infrastructure refresh to replace aging hardware. They wanted a simple, cost effective edge computing solution with easy deployment. At phase one, Delhaize implemented Scale Computing HC3 Edge platform on Lenovo ThinkSystem SR250 and Scale Computing HE150 servers in their 800 stores in Belgium and Luxembourg. By doing so, Delhaize reduced management time by 75% and improved recovery time by 99.9%. Scale Computing HC3 Edge provides a comprehensive system that automates the overall IT management, saving organizations time, money, and resources. Delhaize experienced no downtime in any store where HC3 Edge is implemented.
Alongside simplified management, Scale Computing’s HC3 also offers a comprehensive range of recovery and Data Protection features which have enabled Delhaize to improve disaster recovery. With snapshots, replication and regular back up testing, the HC3 Edge platform also offers business continuity.
Technology is everywhere, and it's increasingly important that edge computing be able to support applications anytime, anywhere
“Technology is everywhere, and it's increasingly important that edge computing be able to support applications anytime, anywhere,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “Edge computing plays a critical role in the retail industry’s IT innovation and digital transformation strategies. Made for the IT infrastructure demands of retail stores, HC3 Edge is a powerful, all-in-one software platform designed for running applications at the edge, and we’re thrilled that our work with Delhaize was named a finalist in the DCD Awards.”
