Jeff Ready of Scale Computing Honored on CRN’s 2020 Top 100 Executives List and named a Top 25 Disruptor

INDIANAPOLIS, August 12, 2020 – Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing, to its 2020 list of Top 100 Executives, specifically ranking among the “Top 25 Disruptors.” This annual list recognizes the trailblazing technology executives who are shaping, transforming, and disrupting the IT channel.

Despite a challenging global environment, under Ready’s leadership Scale Computing delivered record revenue in Q1, achieving a growth rate of over 30% year-over-year. This included a quick pivot by the company in March to assist customers with a solution that enabled employees to work remotely, leveraging virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) technology with partner Leostream. In Q2, Scale Computing launched the HC3250DF, a new performance tier of HC3 appliances for databases and VDI, and delivered a Business Resilience Solution to ensure organizations can keep data, applications and workers online when the unexpected threatens operations.

“We strive to deliver products and services that disrupt the IT market by being innovative, easy-to-use and cost-efficient. But it takes more than great products to be truly successful at those things,” said Ready. “That’s why Scale Computing has worked closely with a variety of partners over the years — MSPs, VARs, distributors, OEMs and technology partners — to enable better sales, delivery, deployment, services and solutions to benefit our customers. Scale Computing’s success would not be possible without the incredible support from our partners, and we thank them for that.”

The 2020 CRN Top 100 Executives list honors the tech visionaries who power the IT channel. It is broken down into four sub-lists: The 25 Most Influential Executives, Top 25 Channel Sales Leaders, Top 25 Innovators, and Top 25 Disrupters.

The Top 100 Executives being recognized have demonstrated exemplary leadership and innovative ideas for the IT channel. In doing so, they help vendors, solution providers, and technology suppliers thrive in an IT marketplace that is both fast-changing and ever more complicated.

“As the IT channel becomes increasingly complex, especially when companies have had to shift to an all-remote workforce, it has presented new challenges for solution providers and technology suppliers alike,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The technology executives on CRN’s 2020 Top 100 Executives list have been able to adapt their channel strategies and continue to provide exemplary leadership to keep their businesses running seamlessly, regardless of today’s challenges.”

The Top 100 Executives list will be featured in the August 2020 issue of CRN Magazine and online at
