Scale Computing, the industry leading developer of hyperconverged solutions that seamlessly combine servers, storage and virtualization into a single platform, today announced the Scale Computing Platinum Partner Program, a new program to provide resellers with unique revenue opportunities in the midsized enterprise market. Scale Computing partners gain the ability to offer the industry’s leading midsized enterprise hyperconverged solution for rolling out virtualization and private cloud environments, and other value-added services.
Scale Computing (scalecomputing.com) 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 VMware. 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.
“Scale Computing’s hyperconverged HC3 family of products makes it much easier for our midsized customers to deploy virtualization and private clouds, and in turn this brings real, tangible value to us by giving us a solution for this market,” said Mike Strohl, CEO of Entisys Solutions Inc. “HC3 is a very easy concept to sell, and has been an easy solution to incorporate into our solution mix. It helps us keep our services bench fully utilized, and makes us our customers’ trusted supplier as their growth requirements scale. Our sales cycles are much shorter because of the simplicity of the solution and the overall acquisition cost.”
The Scale Computing Platinum Partner Program’s mission is to empower all partners to leverage Scale Computing’s products and expert team, and enable them to grow and strengthen their businesses. The program provides resellers with a complete end-to-end support program of sales, marketing and technical enablement. Scale Computing partners also receive competitive margins while bringing Scale Computing’s innovative, cutting-edge solutions to their midmarket customers to help them simplify their infrastructure.
