HyperCore Software

Scale Computing’s HyperCore Software

The uniqueness of the Scale Computing solution is its patented HyperCore Software. HyperCore is preloaded onto all HC3 nodes, ready deploy straight out-of-the-box, fine-tuned for each HC3 node type with nothing additional to license or install. HyperCore continuously monitors all virtual machines, software and hardware components to detect and automatically respond to common infrastructure events, maintain application availability and simplify datacenter management.

Scale Computing’s HC3 and the HyperCore architecture were designed to provide highly available, scalable compute and storage services while maintaining operational simplicity through highly intelligent software automation and architecture simplification. HyperCore puts intelligence and automation in the software layer and was designed to take advantage of low cost, easily replaceable and upgradable “commodity” hardware components including the virtualization capabilities built into modern CPU architectures. By clustering these components together into a single unified and redundant system, these attributes combine to create a flexible and complete “datacenter in a box” that operates as a redundant and elastic “private cloud” with additional nodes being automatically “incorporated” into the cluster and failed hardware being expected, and easily replaced with minimal effort or disruption.
