Scale Computing Launches New HC3 Product at VMworld 2012

“After five years in the scale-out storage business, we’re expanding our role in the datacenter with HC3,” said Jeff Ready, CEO of Scale Computing. “This was our vision for Scale Computing from the very beginning. From our roots as midmarket IT guys ourselves, we understand the frustrations of complexity, management and costs associated with a virtualization deployment – and why less than one-third of these 1.5 million midmarket companies have virtualized. HC3 removes all of the complexity of managing a virtualized environment, eases the challenges of working with multiple vendors, and enables IT departments to actually focus their time on the applications making their companies profitable. We built our company, our culture, and HC3 specifically to solve the problems these customers have.”
