“Scale Computing’s award-winning edge computing capabilities set us apart from our competitors in the HCI market.

Scale Computing HC3 : Where Have You Been All My Career?
“Scale’s HC3 Virtualization Platform is the Hypervisor that I’ve been waiting for and didn’t know it. Everything that you love about virtualized environments is here, and everything that you found unnecessary & cumbersome is gone! It is a very streamlined approach to virtualization with a single pane of glass that is incredibly easy to navigate. Manipulating of systems, setting backup & replication schedules, snapshots & recovery procedures are so easy to do that even the most novice of administrators or technicians can easily perform these tasks. Spinning up new servers or importing servers from another environment is also very easy with detailed instructions provided. Scaling out (pun intended) for future growth is as easy as plugging in and introducing another node to an existing environment. Sizing is very easy to determine, and the support is top notch! There is always a technician readily available and the online portal is very easy to use. Thank you Scale Computing for bringing us into the wonderful world of hyper-converged technologies!”
-Infrastructure and Operations leader in the government sector
