Company Enables Resellers to Further Grow Channel Revenues by Addressing the Rapidly Growing Virtualization Environment and Private Cloud Market Opportunities
INDIANAPOLIS - Scale Computing, the industry leader of hyperconverged solutions that seamlessly combine servers, storage and virtualization into a single platform, today announced it has been named a 2013 Emerging Technology vendor by UBM Tech Channel's CRN Magazine. The annual list highlights hot tech startups making an impact on the channel and an impression on the tech industry as a whole. These up-and-coming technology vendors have recently introduced a new product or technology that is not only innovative, but generates the high margins solution providers require in today's competitive marketplace.
Scale Computing's Platinum Partner Program provides resellers with unique revenue opportunities in the midsized enterprise market. The program delivers a complete end-to-end support program of sales, marketing and technical enablement in offering the industry's leading midsized enterprise hyperconverged solution for rolling out virtualization and private cloud environments, and other value-added services. Scale Computing partners receive competitive margins while bringing Scale Computing's innovative, cutting-edge solutions to their midmarket customers to help them simplify their infrastructure.
"Any technology vendor can claim to offer innovative products and groundbreaking technology, but only a select group can truly impact the marketplace with their offerings," said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. "The companies named to the 2013 Emerging Vendor list offer solutions that deliver as promised while creating the high margins that solution providers demand. We congratulate all the vendors for their commitment to delivering technological innovations that map to the needs of the dynamic channel market."
Scale Computing has pioneered hyperconverged solutions, and has built its HC3™ solution from the ground up, specifically for virtualization. HC3 seamlessly integrates servers, storage and virtualization into a single platform that delivers simplicity, availability and scalability all in one, at an affordable price for midmarket businesses. HC3 meets the needs of midmarket businesses looking to achieve the efficiencies of virtualization and private clouds without the complexities and cost of traditional virtualization solutions. With server, storage and virtualization integrated into a single platform, HC3 eliminates software licenses and additional hardware required. Scale Computing lowers TCO and its integrated approach radically simplifies the infrastructure needed to keep applications running in virtualization and private cloud environments. With built-in redundancy and high availability, deployment and management of a highly available and scalable infrastructure is as easy to manage as a single server.
"CRN is the industry's leading resource for valuable information on channel news, research and events, and it's rewarding to be included on its top emerging technology vendor list," said Doug Howell, Scale Computing Channel Director. "Our goal on the channel side is to help partners deliver the right solution to the multi-billion dollar midmarket. This industry honor validates our successful efforts -- recognizing not only the traction we've seen with our Platinum Partner Program, but also our HC3 solution as an innovative solution that is channel friendly and enables many avenues of channel services revenue, while providing attractive margins."
