Niche Player: Scale Computing

Indianapolis-based Scale Computing ranks ahead of all the other Niche Players on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for both vision and execution, almost ranking as a “visionary” compared to Niche Player. The company began shipping its flagship hyperconverged infrastructure HC3 product in 2012. Last month, Scale Computing put its full HC3 solution into ultra-small Lenovo M90n Nano and Intel NUC products to run full mission-critical apps at the edge.

This year, Scale Computing introduced the HE500 model for edge computing environments, with cost-competitive pricing per node. The company also introduced Intel Cascade Lake processors in the HC1000 and HC5000 product series for improved VDI performance. HC3 is used primarily in edge and remote office/branch office deployments and the primary data centers of small and medium enterprises for business-critical and consolidation workloads. On the OEM front, Scale Computig established an agreement with Acronis to provide on-premises or cloud backup and bare-metal restore to non-HC3 systems, and ransomware protection of backups.

Strength: Scale Computing provides extremely low-cost offerings that require limited hardware investment for edge locations.

Weakness: Gartner said the company is not a fit for large organizations seeking a standardized core-to-edge-to-cloud strategy.
