Scale Computing Honored as Winner of Three Industry-Ranking XCellence Awards at the 2019 Midsize Enterprise Summit: Fall Conference

INDIANAPOLIS - Oct. 1 - Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged solutions, today announced that it has been honored with three XCellence Awards in the “Best Midmarket Solution: Hardware,” “Best Boardroom: Premier” and “Best in Show: Premier” categories at The Channel Company’s 2019 Midsize Enterprise Summit®: Fall Conference. This is the second time this year that Scale Computing has received awards in these three categories.

The XCellence Awards winners are determined by the midmarket CIOs and senior IT executives who attend the annual event. Voting is held to determine the most distinguished midmarket products, services, programs and presentations. Having won this award twice in one year, Scale Computing continues to demonstrate its commitment to understanding the unique IT technology and business needs of the midmarket. 

Scale Computing has a history of being recognized at MES conferences and has received the following XCellence Awards at previous MES conferences:

  • At the MES Spring 2019 conference, Scale Computing was named “Best Midmarket Solution: Hardware,” “Best Boardroom: Premier Sponsor,” and “Best of Show: Premier Sponsor”. 
  • At the MES Spring 2018 conference, Scale Computing was named “Best Midmarket Solution: Hardware” and “Best of Show: Premier Sponsor.”
  • At the MES Fall 2017 conference, Scale Computing was named "Best Midmarket Solution: Hardware," "Best Boardroom" and "Best of Show."

This is another honor for Scale Computing this year, as the company was also recognized as a winner in the Converged/Hyperconverged Infrastructure and Desktop/Server Virtualization categories of the CRN® 2019 Annual Report Card (ARC) awards program, as well as winning all all subcategories for both categories including: Product Innovation, Support, Partnership, and Managed/Cloud Services.

At MES, Scale Computing demonstrated HE500 series, which have been designed to replace traditional complex and expensive on-premises infrastructure with a modern solution optimized for environments where application uptime is critical, yet on-premises IT resources are highly limited. Scale Computing’s HE500 series delivers reliable, easy to deploy, and affordable infrastructure at the edge of the network in a highly available, self-healing and simple to operate solution. The solution is highly suited for remote multi-site deployments across industries, including healthcare, retail and manufacturing.

"We are extremely honored to have won these three awards for a second time this year. It is amazing to have the attendees vote for Scale Computing and displays the continued confidence the industry has in us. Knowing that CIOs and IT executives attend MES to spend time with all of the participating vendors, and then vote on who they consider are the best companies per category, we are thrilled to have won three awards this year," said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. "With Scale Computing HC3, we are dedicated to continuing to enable businesses of all sizes to succeed with an easy to use, highly available, cost-effective solution for IT professionals, that grows and expands as their organization does.”
