A single cost-effective hyperconverged solution

Scale Computing

The HC3 Virtualization Platform is Simply Better

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions like the HC3 Virtualisation Platform combine servers, storage, and virtualisation into a single appliance that can be deployed quickly, managed easily, and scaled out seamlessly. With hyperconverged infrastructure, SAN and NAS storage is no longer required for highly available infrastructure.

We combined servers, storage, and virtualisation into a single solution to make IT infrastructure easier for organisations of every size. Whether you have one IT administrator or hundreds, our HC3 hyperconverged infrastructure eliminates complexity, lowers costs, and frees up management time.

Using an appliance-based approach to virtualization, our HC3 infrastructure solution is faster to deploy, easier to manage, and allows you to scale seamlessly as your organization grows. Even in an emergency with the failure of hardware components or entire appliances, HC3 infrastructure lets you keep critical apps – and your entire organization – up and running.

HC3 Cloud Unity

For on-prem infrastructure, no solution is easier to implement and manage than HC3 hyperconverged infrastructure. The automated management of server resources and storage means that the management interface is as simple as any public or private cloud environment.

Partnering with Google, we’ve extended the reach of HC3 hyperconvergence to the cloud. Nested virtualization in Google Cloud Platform allows Scale Computing to run HC3 in the cloud and replicate data between cloud and on-prem HC3 systems. Connecting HC3 systems between on-prem and cloud opened the way for the built-in data protection features to be used for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

Now, with HC3 Cloud Unity, your on-prem HC3 system can be connected to, and protected by, the cloud. By deploying a virtual HC3 appliance on Google Cloud Platform, VMs can be replicated securely and protected for failover and disaster recovery.
