Edge computing provides mini-data centers that can deliver enterprise
IT services at the edge, but in a small footprint
INDIANAPOLIS & BARCELONA, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization and
hyperconverged solutions today announced the availability of the Scale
Computing HC3 Edge Solution for distributed enterprises. The solution
will be demonstrated at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona.
The solution, which was announced in October
2018, enables distributed enterprises to deploy mini data centers
that offer enterprise-class IT infrastructure at the edge of their
A central theme at this year’s MWC is internet connectivity across
multiple locations within a distributed enterprise. 5G, IoT and smart
cities are driving disruptive innovation, which is accelerating the need
for superior infrastructure at the edge to run critical applications.
Initially driven by the retail space, distributed enterprises now
include many vertical markets, which are increasingly relying on edge
infrastructure to support customers’ connectivity and other business
needs. However, the resilience, scale, security, high-availability and
human IT resources that exist in centralized data centers do not
inherently exist at the edge.
Scale Computing has addressed this market need by providing edge
infrastructure with the capacity to run IT and IoT workloads, detect and
correct infrastructure errors to maximize application uptime, and is
easily managed either remotely or at each individual location by non IT
teams. This reduces the time and budget spent managing technology and
allows companies to focus more on growing their business and serving
“We extensively evaluated the market and wanted to take the time to
ensure any new IT environment could effectively support our applications
and future demands. We continually look to deliver exceptional customer
service internationally and edge computing has a critical role to play
in supporting this,” said Rolf Vanden Eynde, Manager of Strategic
Infrastructure Planning at Delhaize. “Scale Computing HC3 Edge delivered
the stability, support and simplicity we needed to modernize our stores
with IoT for optimizing freezing, heating and the customer experience.
Their solution also outclassed the competition on total cost of
ownership and simplicity.”
Scale Computing is providing an easier way to scale infrastructure, both
up and down as needed, with lighter hardware while maintaining
enterprise redundancy, efficiency, and simplicity at unmatched prices.
The HC3 Edge solution is available today.
“Whether it’s IoT, the digitization of everything, or consumer
experience expectations, we are seeing an explosion in the demand for IT
resources at the edge. However, existing infrastructure in distributed
locations are woefully inadequate for running mission-critical
workloads,” commented Jeff Ready, CEO, Scale Computing. “It’s a
performance and service gap that needs a solution as organizations rise
to the opportunity presented by global edge computing trends, such as
Internet of Things. The work we have been doing has generated a lot of
interest globally and it is exciting to see results from our early edge
