INDIANAPOLIS - August 16, 2021 - Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named it a winner of the 2021 CRN Annual Report (ARC) Awards in both the Edge Computing category and the Hyperconverged Infrastructure category. This is the third consecutive year Scale Computing has been recognized as a CRN ARC Award winner. The company also swept all of the subcategories including Product Innovation, Support, Partnership, and Managed & Cloud Services in both Edge Computing and Hyperconverged Infrastructure.
As one of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry, the CRN ARC Awards have been recognizing and honoring best-in-class vendors that are committed to driving channel growth through innovation and outstanding channel performance for the past 36 years.
“We are proud to be recognized as a leader in both Edge Computing and HyperConverged Infrastructure,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder, Scale Computing. “This recognition by CRN, and ringing endorsement from our partners, is a testament to the fact that we are dedicated to the channel and continue to deliver innovative, highly available, scalable, and simple solutions that enable customers to overcome IT challenges and meet business goals, while providing fast and generous revenue opportunities for the channel.”
Today’s complex infrastructure environments -- both in the datacenter and at the edge -- require simple, affordable, and easy-to-deploy infrastructure solutions. Earlier this year Scale Computing expanded its Edge Computing offerings by introducing HC3 video surveillance and security solutions, optimized to consolidate video storage, video management and analytics workloads. Scale Computing’s video surveillance offers autonomous self healing, providing both hands-off resiliency to keep VMS record and access to recorded data even when hardware components fail.
Scale Computing’s award winning HC3 Edge series brings on-premises edge computing with high availability and disaster recovery to remote locations at an affordable entry level cost. All edge models can be deployed quickly, managed locally or remotely, and can self-heal almost instantly. Customers enjoy affordable edge computing infrastructure that is reliable, easy to deploy, and easy to use.
Scale Computing has combined servers, storage, and virtualization into a single solution to make IT infrastructure easier for organizations of every size. Whether organizations have one IT administrator or hundreds, Scale Computing’s HC3 hyperconverged infrastructure eliminates complexity, lowers costs, and frees up management time. Using an appliance-based approach to virtualization, Scale Computing’s HC3 infrastructure solution is faster to deploy, easier to manage, and allows organizations to scale seamlessly as they grow.
This invitation-only survey of each vendor’s top channel partners, conducted by The Channel Company’s research team, included over 3,000 solution providers across North America. Survey participants were asked to rate their satisfaction with 66 vendor partners. Scores were given in 25 major product categories, based on performance across four criteria: product innovation, support, partnership, and managed and cloud services.
"We are thrilled to recognize these vendors who continue to go above and beyond to develop and nurture successful vendor-channel partner relationships by delivering best-in-class product and service offerings,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s Annual Report Card Awards go further than just highlighting our winners, they also offer deep insights into channel opinions and provide vendors with actionable feedback to implement into their channel strategies going forward. Congratulations to all our award winners. We look forward to honoring them at this year’s XChange+ 2021 conference in August.”
Winners will be featured throughout The Channel Company’s XChange+ 2021 conference, taking place August 15-17 in San Antonio, TX. Additional coverage of the CRN 2021 ARC results can be viewed online at www.CRN.com/ARC and will be featured in the October 2021 issue of CRN Magazine.
