CEO Jeff Ready On Scale Computing Vs. VMware’s vTax And Nutanix

‘The cost of vTax is big, but the real cost is in the ongoing administration of those systems. Over 50 percent of every IT budget is humans. That’s the real cost. To that extent, Nutanix doesn’t solve that problem,’ says Scale Computing CEO Jeff Ready.

What’s coming down the innovation pipeline for Scale?

We’ve started doing some things already, but we’ll have more throughout the year around what I would call non-traditional form factors for the gear. So the Scale platform will run on traditional servers that you put in a rack, but when you get into some of these environments you see that traditional servers kind of don’t make any sense. The reason that servers are measured by 1U, 2U, 4U and have rack mount screws and all of that is because it goes into the data center. By definition, when you’re out at the edge you’re probably not in a data center. You think about a fast-food restaurant, for example, are they really going to stand up a rack of gear? No. … Some of these new technologies, whether it’s an Intel NUC or a Lenovo tiny server as a form factor make more sense. They consume less power, generate less heat and are far less expensive. As long as you have a software layer which can turn those things into a true highly available clustered environment, which is what we do, then that’s all you need.
