Scale Computing integrates storage, servers, and virtualization software into an all-in-one appliance based system that is scalable, self-healing and as easy to manage as a single server. Using industry standard components, the HC3™ appliances install in under an hour, and can be expanded and upgraded with no downtime. High availability insulates the user from any disk or server failure and a unified management capability driven by the patented HyperCore Software™, efficiently integrates all functionality. The result is a data center solution that reduces operational complexity, allows a faster response to business issues, and dramatically reduces costs.
Scale have now added hybrid storage including SSD and spinning disk with HyperCore Enhanced Automated Tiering (HEAT). Scale’s HEAT technology uses a combination of built-in intelligence, data access patterns, and workload priority to automatically optimize data across disparate storage tiers within the cluster.
A pioneer of hyper convergence, and although their solutions do not (yet) deliver the very highest 'screaming edge' performance, we are hooked right up on the latest IT trend – that the combination of great performance but exceptional reliability and simplicity of ownership, is what IT departments are looking for, not overly expensive and complicated VM / SAN / Server setups - which may perhaps be able to squeeze out a few 1,000 more IOPS. Does that really matter?
We think that many IT people have just got used to the ‘stress overhead’ of managing what we call the ‘infrastructure spaghetti’ of traditional VM solutions. If we are ever working on server racks and break out in sarcastic Italian song, this is why. VM ala Vongele? O SANo mio? No thanks. Migrating your subscription and support expense heavy, overly complicated VM setup to Scale Computing’s HC3 system will ultimately mean you get to spend time on what’s really important. What's running in the VMs, not the stuff that’s running under them.
