2020 Annual Report Card Winners: Solution Providers Give Top Grades To Key Vendors
For the 35th year, solution providers scored vendors in 24 technology categories based on their performance in product innovation, support, partnership, and managed and cloud services.
Edge Computing: Scale Computing
Channel Chief: Scott Mann, Director, North American Channel
Technology innovator Scale Computing has been making a name for itself in edge computing with its HC3 Hypercore software, HE150 and HE500 appliances, and HC3 Edge Solutions. In March, as the COVID-19 pandemic forced many to work from home, Scale Computing leveraged virtual desktop infrastructure technology from its alliance with Leostream to allow users to log directly into desktops running in their offices.
Scale Computing made a clean sweep of this category with an overall ARC score of 92.4. Partners gave the company high scores of 96.2 for product innovation (including 105.6 for product quality and reliability, the second-highest grade on this year’s ARC, and 100.1 for product technical innovation), 93.2 for support, 94.4 for partnership and 85.2 for managed and cloud services.
