Edge Computing And IoT
Winner: Scale Computing SC//Fleet Manager
Available as part of the Scale Computing Platform, SC//Fleet Manager consolidates real-time conditions for cluster fleets, including storage and compute resources, for edge computing deployments and MSPs. It quickly identifies concerns using a single pane of glass, scaling from one to over 50,000 clusters. In February 2023, Scale Computing unveiled a zero-touch provisioning (ZTP) feature, simplifying the task of centrally configuring clusters of edge computing infrastructure in SC//Fleet Manager prior to nodes arriving on-premises and decreasing installation time by 90 percent or more. Nodes and clusters no longer require manual initialization with ZTP and can be easily installed with non-IT resources.
