INDIANAPOLIS - January 26, 2021 - Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, today announced that it has been selected as a finalist in TechTarget’s Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com’s annual Products of the Year Awards for 2020. TechTarget named Scale Computing’s HE150, the industry’s smallest and most powerful edge computing appliance. as a finalist in the Hyper-converged & Composable Infrastructures category.
In its announcement, SearchStorage noted that: “Scale Computing’s HE150 appliance brings the HCI paradigm to incredibly low-end power-efficient devices, enabling the Scale Computing hyperconvergence offering to run on devices as small as Intel's four-by-four inch Next Unit of Computing mini-computer. Hyperconvergence is a natural model for edge computing, and the efficiency of Scale Computing's HE150 enables IT architects to deploy the HCI model into spaces where the vendor's competitors simply can't go for IoT and remote manufacturing or logistics locations.”
“Technology is everywhere, and it's increasingly important that edge computing be able to support an application-driven world,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “Because limited IT resources are available at the edge, supporting those apps requires a tricky combination of enterprise-grade application reliability, autonomous management, and self-healing. The award-winning Scale Computing HE150 delivers on all fronts.”
The HE150 appliance combines Scale Computing’s self-healing platform for autonomously running applications at the edge with a small, all-flash NVMe storage-based compute appliance that delivers all of the simplicity, efficiency, and enterprise-ready virtualization associated with Scale Computing’s HC3 platform.
This announcement comes on the heels of other recent industry recognition, including:
Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure (December 2020). Scale Computing was recognized for the fourth consecutive year.
CRN’s 2020 Tech Innovator Award. HE150 won for Edge Infrastructure.
TrustRadius Customer Satisfaction Awards. Scale Computing took first place for 2021 Best Feature Set, Best Usability, and Best Customer Support.
GigaOm Radar Report for Hyperconverged Infrastructure: Small-to-Medium Enterprises and Edge: Scale Computing was named a “Leader” and “Outperformer.”
The Storage Magazine 2020 Products of the Year Awards recognizes winners in five categories: Backup and DR Hardware/Software/Services, Cloud Storage, Disk and Disk Subsystems, Hyper-converged and Composable Infrastructures, and Storage System and Application Software. All enterprise storage products were judged based on technological innovation, performance, ease of integration, ease of use and manageability, functionality and value. Winners will be announced in February on SearchStorage.com and will also be published in the February issue of Storage Magazine.
