Scale Computing Announces Two New Hyperconverged Appliances Maximizing Speed and Capacity

July 18, 2017 Off By Hoofer

Scale Computing today announced the availability of two new hyperconverged appliances, HC1150DF and HC5150D. The new appliances are designed for storage hungry data centers and for organizations of all sizes looking to maximize storage speed and capacity. By combining storage, virtualization and servers capabilities, the two new hyperconverged appliances offer the performance and capacity needed by large enterprise environments for a simple and agile IT infrastructure allowing them to focus on the business. 

The HC1150DF provides all-flash storage, while the HC5150D provides raw hybrid flash storage per cluster that retains the simplicity and ease of use that are now synonymous with the HC3 family.

"We needed a simple yet powerful IT infrastructure solution for our Indiana facility, and Scale’s hyperconverged systems are a perfect fit. The scalability, high availability and redundancy give me confidence in delivering service to a 24x7x365 high demand environment," said Karl Paulius, IT infrastructure lead at Steel Dynamics, Inc.’s Pittsboro, Indiana facility. "These latest appliances provide greatly improved capacity and flexibility. I’m confident Scale will deliver the same high performance for other areas of Steel Dynamics."

With 3x the capacity of Scale’s popular, award winning HC1150 system, the HC5150D is capable of efficiently and seamlessly supporting resource intensive workloads such as data warehousing and large file storage from sources such as computer-aided design (CAD) and mapping or medical imaging. For the first time, organizations can now leverage 77TB of hybrid flash storage per node to gain speed, efficiency and competitive advantage.

"As adoption of hyperconverged solutions continues to expand with SMBs and into the enterprise, Scale Computing’s new appliances are addressing this market opportunity with additional speed and capacity at an affordable price," said Terri McClure, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "With more than a decade in the hyperconverged industry, Scale continues to fill a clear need by removing the complexity of traditional virtualized deployments."

Scale Computing’s HC3 platform brings storage, servers, virtualization and management together in a single, comprehensive system. With no virtualization software to license and no external storage to buy, HC3 products lower out-of-pocket costs and simplify the infrastructure needed to keep applications running.

"Scale Computing is continuing to expand its product offerings based on customer feedback to support tomorrow’s storage and compute needs," said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. "The HC5150D and HC1150DF are new powerful options for running HC3 with greater storage capacity and speed while running a single appliance, adding resources to an existing HC3 cluster or adding a single appliance for backup/DR. Whether customers are storing large image files or an abundance of really small files, the HC5150D provides the capacity they need in a hyperconverged system."

The HC1150DF and HC5150D are available for purchase now. To learn more, visit
