“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.”

A few months ago I wrote about how we were preparing to launch a new product at my company, one that was built around the idea of radical innovation – the kind of innovation that changes industries by changing the very foundation of the industries themselves. Not all innovations are like this, nor should they be. They are high-risk propositions but they are the kinds of innovations I like best because, success or failure, they are rooted in a core vision. And, I am a “vision” kind of guy.
Right now, I am sitting on a flight en route to the tradeshow at which we will launch this new product. The product is called the HC3. My company is Scale Computing. It’s a product that plays in the world of information technology infrastructure – the blinking lights and humming of a server room that is full of stuff. It’s a world that most of you probably don’t give two hoots about. But to me, it’s the world I grew up in.

Scale Computing is very excited about the release of HC3 , the world’s first truly hyper-converged infrastructure for midsize companies. While the product brings fundamental changes in the way IT managers will forever architect their infrastructure, it also creates a new variety of alliance partnership opportunities that can quickly and efficiently bring value to IT consumers.
