Scale Computing recognized by CRN as a 2015 Emerging Vendor

INDIANAPOLIS – Scale Computing, the leading provider of hyperconverged solutions, today announced today it has been named to The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.

Scale Computing’s HC3 platform brings storage, servers, virtualization and management together in a single, comprehensive system. With no virtualization software to license and no external storage to buy, HC3 products lower out-of-pocket costs and radically simplify the infrastructure needed to keep applications running. HC3 products make the deployment and management of a highly available and scalable infrastructure as easy to manage as a single server.

Solution providers and resellers are a critical piece of the company’s go-to-market strategy, with Scale Computing selling all of its products through channel partners rather than through direct sales. With competitive margins, marketing support and award-winning technology, Scale Computing’s Platinum Partners have the opportunities to deliver a solution that has been specifically built for easy deployment and managed by IT administrators who want to spend more time focused on business needs and applications rather than troubleshooting infrastructure and hardware issues.

“Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year’s Emerging Vendors List don’t disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel.”

“We greatly appreciate the recognition by The Channel Company in being named one of this year’s CRN Emerging Vendors,” saidJeff Ready, CEO at Scale Computing. “With no direct sales, our channel partners are a critical component to our company’s success. We strive to provide them with the opportunities, support and game-changing technology they need to be successful. It’s a symbiotic relationship, to be sure, and we are thrilled to be partnered with so many great solutions providers and resellers to bring hyperconvergence to the midmarket.”

Companies included in CRN’s 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2015 issue and will be available online at www.crn.com.
