The 10 Hottest Hyperconverged Systems Of 2019
CRN breaks down the ten coolest and most popular hyperconverged systems in the world in 2019.
Scale Computing HC3
Scale Computing’s flagship HC3 virtualization platform leverages its own KVM-based hypervisor together with its management, compute, storage pooling and network virtualization capabilities.
This year, Scale Computing launched its new HE500 family of hyperconverged appliances for HC3, looking to take cost-efficient edge HCI to the next level with a starting price of $16,000. Designed for easy to deploy and affordable hyperconverged infrastructure at the edge, the series of appliances provide enterprise-class features to remote locations and boost edge computing capabilities with disaster recovery.
Scale Computing CEO Jeff Ready told CRN that its market differentiation from competitors lies in its automation and edge strategy. “All of our stuff is wrapped around automation, meaning that it can be deployed and when stuff breaks, it self-heals,” said Ready. “[That’s] why we apply very well to edge computing and that’s why we have such a niche there. We have a very strong play at the edge. It’s a challenge for the vendors who are linked to the hip to VMware-only.”
