Scale Computing Recognized on the 2021 CRN Edge Computing 100 List

INDIANAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#HCIScale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Scale Computing to its 2021 Edge Computing 100 list.

With the rising importance of business intelligence and data analytics, the ability to quickly collect and process that data is becoming a key differentiator for businesses of all sizes. At the same time, the need to expand corporate networks to encompass larger numbers of remote and hybrid workers makes securing the edge even more critical.

“IT leaders require the ability to run applications and process data outside centralized data centers or public cloud, at the edge of their network, closest to where that data is created and utilized. We understand these needs and have created solutions to centrally monitor and manage hundreds or even thousands of distributed edge deployments in today’s complex infrastructure environments,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “We are very proud of the innovations we’ve made in technology, products, and partnerships that have positioned us as a leader. This recognition by CRN is a testament to the fact that we are dedicated to the channel and continue to deliver innovative, highly available, highly scalable, and simple solutions.”

Today’s companies require simple, affordable and easy-to-deploy IT infrastructure solutions to meet complex infrastructure environments and support a wide range of modern and legacy applications — both in the datacenter and at the edge. Scale Computing expanded its Edge Computing offerings earlier this year by introducing HC3 video surveillance and security solutions, optimized to consolidate video storage, video management, access control and analytics workloads. Scale Computing’s video surveillance offers autonomous self healing, providing hands-off resiliency to keep VMS recorders running and maintain access to previously recorded data even when hardware components fail.

Scale Computing’s award-winning HC3 Edge series enables on-premises edge computing with high availability and disaster recovery at remote locations at an affordable entry level cost. All edge models can be deployed quickly, managed locally or remotely, and can self-heal almost instantly.

The second-annual CRN Edge Computing 100 list spotlights the vendors leading the way in providing channel partners with the technology needed to build next-generation, intelligent edge solutions that ultimately bring data collection and processing closer to users. The categories include Edge Hardware, Software and Services; IoT and 5G Edge Services; and Security.

“CRN’s 2021 Edge Computing 100 list returns this year to recognize the leaders bringing the technology required for channel partners to build unique edge solutions that empower businesses to work better and smarter,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The contributions of these innovators continue to pave the way for the IT channel to deliver bold, progressive, and trusted offerings to its customers.”

CRN editors compiled the 2021 Edge Computing 100 list based on a variety of criteria, including feedback from solution providers during the year regarding the company’s impact on the market, the company’s overall influence on the channel, and the types of technology and services it makes available to partners. This recognition follows the ARC awards Scale Computing won this summer from CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in both the Edge Computing category and the Hyperconverged Infrastructure category. The company also swept all of the subcategories including Product Innovation, Support, Partnership, and Managed & Cloud Services in both Edge Computing and Hyperconverged Infrastructure.

The 2021 Edge Computing 100 list will be featured in a special November issue of CRN Magazine and online at
