Scale Computing Wins Vendor Excellence Award at Midmarket CIO Forum

INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Scale Computing, the leader in hyperconverged storage, server, and virtualization solutions for midsized users, today announced it has won the Vendor Excellence Award for Best Midmarket Strategy, presented at the recent Midmarket CIO Forum by Boardroom Events. The awards, judged by a panel of CIOs, recognize vendors and IT teams that are helping to solve both technology and business challenges in midmarket companies.

Boardroom Events’ invitation-only Midmarket CIO Forum is an engaging, informative, and social venue for IT Executives and Solution Providers who are focused on technologies for the midmarket. These organizations require unique and specific technology solutions that are as robust as those for the largest enterprises, but with service levels, pricing schedules, and product features personal enough for smaller companies.

“No other company is as dedicated to extoling the virtues of storage and server virtualization in the midmarket as Scale Computing, so we appreciate this recognition from the very people we do our best to support,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and Co-founder of Scale Computing. “The real honor is that every day, our team works with these customers and their solution providers to help manage complexity, ensure performance and availability, grow on demand, and bring infrastructures up to date.”

Scale Computing is a multi-award winner in this market segment, winning the same Vendor Excellence Award in Spring 2015, as well as Best Emerging Midmarket Solution in Fall 2014. Recently the HC3 was also honored at The Channel Company’s Midsize Enterprise Summit West event with an XCellence Award in the Mid-Market Solution: Hardware category.

Scale Computing’s Hyperconverged Platform (HC3®) enjoys robust adoption from its small-to-midsized business customer base. With no virtualization software to license and no external storage to buy, HC3 products reduce out-of-pocket costs and radically simplify the infrastructure needed to keep applications running. HC3 products make the deployment and management of a virtualized infrastructure as easy to manage as a single server.

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.
