Scale Computing is out with a new class of HC3 appliances that target database analytics and high-density virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments.

The vendor, which historically targets infrastructure for SMBs, and more recently edge computing, launched the new HC3250DF HCI appliance. It is designed for performance computing for enterprises and SMBs, from the core data center to the edge.

Craig Theriac is director of product management at Scale Computing.

“HC3 brings together four pillars. Those are simplicity, availability, scalability and affordability,” Theriac told Channel Futures.

Scale says the latest device can get up and running quickly. The integrated platform includes software, servers and storage. The HC3250DF is an all-NVMe device, the first in Scale Computing’s product line. And users don’t have to worry about VMware. The company relies on a KVM-based HyperCore hypervisor.

Expanding Portfolio

Like all Scale Computing HC3 appliances, the HC3250DF features intelligent automation for self-healing and high availability. This keeps clusters running through component and appliance failures. It also features integrated disaster recovery capabilities that protect data and workloads at remote sites for fast failover and recovery.

Scale says the HC3250DF is an ideal application platform for core data center and edge computing use cases where IoT, ease-of-use, high availability and TCO matter. This includes retail, industrial, finance, remote office/back office and mobile platforms.

“This device becomes a differentiator for our partners,” said Scott Mann, director North America channel at Scale Computing. “It is an exciting new technology with all-flash NVMe, offered at an affordable price point.”

Scale Computing is a channel-led company with more than 1,000 global partners.

The vendor recently rolled out a new partner portal and launched new training certification courses. The first phase of training is for a technical and sales certification. A second phase will begin next quarter. This will include more advanced technical and sales training.

The HC3250DF will be available next quarter.

Last June, Scale Computing announced the HE500 series of edge appliances. The company says that new edge family helps companies looking for reliable, easy-to-deploy and affordable infrastructure at the network’s edge.
