INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - September 20, 2016) - Scale Computing, the market leader in hyperconverged storage, server and virtualization solutions for midsized companies, today announced that CEO and company co-founder Jeff Ready has been named to The Channel Company's Top Midmarket IT Executives list. This annual list honors influential vendor and solution provider executives who have demonstrated an exceptionally strong commitment to the midmarket.
Ready has not only proven himself as a leader but as a negotiator, fundraiser, technologist, marketer and trusted advisor, having started numerous companies and raising more than $50 million in investment capital. He leads Scale Computing's concerted efforts to bring storage, servers, virtualization and management together in a single, comprehensive system to the mid-market space. With no virtualization software to license and no external storage to buy, HC3 products lower out-of-pocket costs and radically simplify the infrastructure needed to keep applications running. HC3 products make the deployment and management of a highly available and scalable infrastructure as easy to manage as a single server.
"The midmarket can be an easily overlooked and underserved space from vendors who focus on delivering monolithic systems to the enterprise or producing mass market devices without needed functionality at the low end," said Ready. "Our philosophy has always been to deliver the highest quality solutions with the highest levels of functionality at the best price available. This approach has served both us and our customers well. I sincerely appreciate that the efforts of myself and the Scale Computing team were recognized with this honor by The Channel Company at this year's Midsize Enterprise Summit"
"The Channel Company and Midsize Enterprise Summit are proud to recognize these individuals and the companies they represent for their remarkable efforts to meet the unique IT needs of this fast-growing industry," said Robert C. DeMarzo, Senior Vice President of Event Content and Strategy, The Channel Company. "The winners will be honored at this year's Midsize Enterprise Summit West event this month in Austin, Texas, the nation's largest gathering of midmarket senior IT executives and the ideal venue in which to honor these deserving leaders. We congratulate each of the honorees and look forward to their continued success."
The Top Midmarket IT Executives List was announced at the 2016 Midsize Enterprise Summit West, held at the JW Marriott Hotel in Austin, Texas, Sept. 18-20. The executives will also be featured on CRN.com, a leading source for IT industry news.
