Scale Computing Launches Scale Legion Community for Hyperconvergence Users

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - June 13, 2016) - Scale Computing, the market leader in hyperconverged storage, server and virtualization solutions for midsized companies, announced today a new user community, Scale Legion, for IT professionals in small to midsized environments. Scale Legion is open to any IT professional who manages a hyperconverged infrastructure, regardless of virtualization platform(s), in addition to employees of the more than 1300 organizations using Scale Computing products and Scale's solution provider partners.

Members of Scale Legion will have access to web-based and in-person opportunities to network with peers, educational resources, including talks, meetings, conferences, road shows, webinars, training, technical materials, and other content to help create efficient, flexible SMB data centers. Scale Computing also intends to give community members an active voice in product direction.

The Scale Legion concept was born out of the end user community at Spiceworks, the social and professional network for tech workers, and nurtured by Shane Weinbrecht, who was president of the VMware Users Group (VMUG) for more than four years. Weinbrecht, a longtime expert in SMB virtualization technologies and platforms, now serves as Scale Computing's Senior Systems Engineer and Community Manager, North America, working directly with customers and resellers to build data center solutions using Scale's HC3 product line.

"IT administrators in these organizations are often generalists, who must have a wide variety of skills, from servers to data protection to iSCSI to website development," said Weinbrecht. "Scale Legion is a community of peers who are facing the same complexities and demands, so we can collaborate, commiserate, and learn from each other. This is a community for technologists who aren't afraid to go against the status quo and build new things."

The Scale Legion's official launch event will be held in New York City at The Grand Havana Room, (http://grandhavana.com/) on June 15. For more information or to register, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/scale-legion-nyc-tickets-25589469793.

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 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. Scale's updated storage architecture supports hybrid storage including SSD and spinning disk with HyperCore Enhanced Automated Tiering (HEAT) without the need for VSAs, SAN protocols, or file system overhead.

About Scale Computing
Scale Computing integrates storage, servers, and virtualization software into an all-in-one appliance based system that is scalable, self-healing, and as easy to manage as a single server. Using industry standard components, the HC3 appliances install in under an hour, and can be expanded and upgraded with no downtime. High availability insulates the user from any disk or server failure and a unified management capability driven by the patented HyperCore Software™, efficiently integrates all functionality. The result is a data center solution that reduces operational complexity, allows a faster response to business issues, and dramatically reduces costs.
