Scale Computing Launches Scale Legion Community for Hyperconvergence Users

Scale Computing, the market leader in hyperconverged storage, server and virtualization solutions for midsized companies, announced today a new user community, Scale Legion, for IT professionals in small to midsized environments. Scale Legion is open to any IT professional who manages a hyperconverged infrastructure, regardless of virtualization platform(s), in addition to employees of the more than 1500 organizations using Scale Computing products and Scale’s solution provider partners.

Members of Scale Legion will have access to web-based and in-person opportunities to network with peers, educational resources, including talks, meetings, conferences, road shows, webinars, training, technical materials, and other content to help create efficient, flexible SMB data centers. Scale Computing also intends to give community members an active voice in product direction.

The Scale Legion concept was born out of the end user community at Spiceworks, the social and professional network for tech workers, and nurtured by Shane Weinbrecht, who was president of the VMware Users Group (VMUG) for more than four years. Weinbrecht, a longtime expert in SMB virtualization technologies and platforms, now serves as Scale Computing’s Senior Systems Engineer and Community Manager, North America, working directly with customers and resellers to build data center solutions using Scale’s HC3 product line.

“IT administrators in these organizations are often generalists, who must have a wide variety of skills, from servers to data protection to iSCSI to website development,” said Weinbrecht. “Scale Legion is a community of peers who are facing the same complexities and demands, so we can collaborate, commiserate, and learn from each other. This is a community for technologists who aren’t afraid to go against the status quo and build new things.”
