Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, today announced that it is a finalist for the Hyperconvergence Innovation of the Year in the 2022 SDC Awards for its work with ship management and marine services provider Northern Marine Group. The award recognizes single and multi-vendor solutions that deliver an architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking, and virtualization resources for the end-user.
“We’re thrilled to be shortlisted as a finalist for our work with customers like Northern Marine, which is successfully deploying our innovative edge computing and hyperconverged solutions,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder, Scale Computing. “Increasingly, IT leaders must run applications outside the cloud or traditional data center, close to where the data is actually being used. Scale Computing meets the complex and dynamic infrastructure demands of those industries that require 24×7 availability and full redundancy, and is backed by human experts who understand the unique conditions that exist at the edge.”
Northern Marine’s vessels rely on a host of critical applications — if their onboard internet is intermittent, their navigation will fail, making it impossible for a ship’s navigator to chart a course. Northern Marine’s business leaders needed to upgrade existing deployed IT infrastructure onboard their vessels, address intermittent internet connectivity (including satellite connectivity and latency), ensure servers remain online and operational with minimal downtime, reduce exposure to expensive en-route repairs, and comply with regulatory requirements, all while dealing with a lack of onboard IT personnel. Northern Marine deployed Scale Computing SC//HyperCore clusters to run their operations smoothly while at sea and realized immediate benefits from enhanced performance and simplified management.
Scale Computing Platform brings simplicity, high availability, and scalability together, replacing the existing infrastructure and running applications in a single, easy-to-manage platform. SC//HyperCore saves time and valuable resources because the software, servers, and storage are all in one fully integrated platform. The same innovative software and simple user interface power a user’s infrastructure, regardless of their hardware configuration. Using patented HyperCore™ technology, the award-winning, self-healing platform identifies, reduces, and corrects problems in real-time. SC//HyperCore makes ensuring application uptime easier for IT to manage and for customers to afford. In the aforementioned use case, maritime providers were able to run their critical onboard IT applications with self-healing, automated infrastructure.
The SDC Awards, now in its 13th year, will announce its winners at an awards ceremony in London on Thursday, Nov. 24, 2022. The SDC Awards are firmly focused on recognizing and rewarding success in the products and services that are the foundation for digital transformation.
