INDIANAPOLIS – November 8, 2021 – Scale 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 as a winner for the 2021 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. Scale Computing is being recognized for its HC3 Video Surveillance in the Edge Computing category.
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. HC3 Video Surveillance offers autonomous self healing, providing both hands-off resiliency to keep VMS records and access to recorded data even when hardware components fail.
Video surveillance implementations are critical to organizational security and monitoring, as traditional video management systems, monitoring, and new IoT technologies for video analytics and artificial intelligence continue to be a major challenge for organizations. Today’s complex infrastructure environments – both in the data center and at the edge – require simpler deployments with affordable and easy-to-deploy infrastructure solutions.
“As technology further pushes its way into every part of the business, the need for edge computing to support an application-driven world is expanding,“ said Jeff Ready, CEO, and co-founder of Scale Computing. “We are honored to be recognized by CRN and remain dedicated to delivering innovative solutions, like HC3 Edge technology, to bring simple, available, and affordable infrastructure for applications in places where IT resources are impossible.”
