The Shortest Distance to Virtualization Excellence
When it comes to virtualization technology, you have more options than you probably realize. With the number of options available, you can choose an IT infrastructure platform that offers a simplified, highly automated infrastructure that keeps your applications and organization running efficiently. Many of today’s virtualization solutions are comprised of multiple vendor products—one for the hypervisor, servers, and storage hardware—making it more complicated and expensive than it needs to be.

Why Migrating to Scale Computing's Virtualization Solution is the Smart Choice

Introduction

When it comes to virtualization technology, you have more options than you probably realize. With the number of options available, you can choose an IT infrastructure platform that offers a simplified, highly automated infrastructure that keeps your applications and organization running efficiently.

Many of today’s virtualization solutions are comprised of multiple vendor products—one for the hypervisor, servers, and storage hardware—making it more complicated and expensive than it needs to be. Configuring those disparate server and storage components just the right way wastes valuable time.

Then you have to install and configure the hypervisor and add time to test for compatibility and performance, further delaying deployment. To succeed, you need expertise in all those different platforms, some of which are so complicated that you’re expected to be certified in them.

Once you’ve got it all up and running, it can be hard to scale out when you need more resources, especially if you’re not able to add the exact same components. You may need to bring in more expertise and conduct more testing. Then you have the ongoing cost of licensing renewals, support, and maintenance for multiple pieces from multiple vendors, including different licenses for different features. Add disaster recovery—an additional piece of the puzzle that can add yet another vendor, requiring more expertise and further complicating matters. There goes more time and more money.

Whether you’re considering migrating from your existing virtualization platform or are virtualizing from scratch for the first time, there’s a better way to do it. Whether you are looking at a single location or implementing an edge computing platform across hundreds of sites, Scale Computing’s hyperconverged approach is the shortest path to affordable virtualization that’s easy to deploy, easy to manage, and easy to scale.

Scale Computing’s virtualization software and appliances are based on patented technologies designed from the ground up to minimize infrastructure complexity and cost. Scale Computing Platform has helped IT organizations across all industries deploy robust virtualization solutions.

Get a Grip on Your Local IT with Edge Computing
Edge computing provides a reliable, easy-to-manage, and affordable infrastructure for your remote locations. New technologies are constantly changing the IT landscape. These developments force organizations to critically review their technical architecture. This is particularly true for businesses with remote locations. In this white paper, you will learn what edge computing is, how it helps you modernize your infrastructure, and how it enables you to get a grip on your remote IT resources.

Edge computing provides a reliable, easy-to-manage, and affordable infrastructure for your remote locations.

New technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), are changing the IT landscape. IoT deployments enable businesses to make more intelligent decisions, help streamline business processes, and improve the customer experience. These developments force organizations to critically review their technical architecture. This is particularly true for businesses with various remote locations. For these organizations, IoT technology requires local data processing, as direct-to-cloud communication may not be reliable or fast enough to process vast amounts of time-sensitive data. Therefore, the local IT infrastructure is becoming just as critical as the IT resources located at central locations or in the data center.

Unfortunately, the resiliency, scalability, security, and availability at central locations do not inherently exist remotely. In addition, remote locations often lack skilled IT staff.

To innovate, local infrastructures need to evolve to match the criticality of the new workloads.

Regardless of size, businesses need a solid and simple infrastructure that is scalable and easy to manage, both remotely and locally.

Edge computing can make this happen. In this white paper, you will learn what edge computing is, how it helps you modernize your infrastructure, and how it enables you to get a grip on your remote IT resources.

What is Edge Computing?

Edge computing is a physical computing infrastructure intentionally located outside the four walls of the data center. Therefore, storage compute resources can be placed where they are needed.

Running on a small hardware footprint, an edge computing infrastructure collects and processes vast quantities of data, which can then be uploaded to a centralized data center or the cloud. Edge computing acts as a high-performance bridge from local compute to both private and public clouds.
