Scale Computing, a market leader in hyperconverged solutions, today announced that the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) has selected Scale Computing’s HC3 platform to underpin its IT infrastructure. The HC3 cluster provides a cost effective and simple-to-manage solution that has helped modernize the organization and cater to future capacity demands.

Looking to simplify IT management while remaining cost effective, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra decided to pursue a hyperconverged platform and opted for Scale Computing’s HC3 cluster.

In addition, the HC3 solution is built in a scale-out architecture, where nodes can be added, allowing for future growth and capacity demands.
The Scale Computing HC3 cluster integrates server, storage and virtualization into a single appliance that delivers simplicity, availability and scalability.
