LONDON, December 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Scale Computing, the leading vendor of hyperconverged solutions, has won Virtualisation Company of the Year at the Storage, Virtualisation, Cloud (SVC) Awards 2013.
Judging at the SVC Awards is based solely on public votes and therefore is voted for by customers and partners who value the products and services delivered by companies. The awards reward products, projects and services, as well as honouring companies and teams operating in the cloud, virtualisation and storage sectors.
Scale Computing simplifies the costly and complex IT infrastructure in small and medium businesses by delivering a hyperconverged platform designed specifically for virtualisation. Scale Computing has increased its customer base by 45 per cent in Europe in the last year alone. In Europe, Scale Computing lists Safran Power UK and Breedon Agreggates, who were shortlisted for Private Sector Virtualisation Project of the Year, as well as Stoke Park School, Weston Homes and Merida Bicycles as its clients.
"Winning Virtualisation Company of the Year at the SVC Awards is great recognition for the impact that our flagship product, HC3, has had since launching a year ago," says Patrick Conte, EVP and GM, Worldwide Field Operations, Scale Computing. "As these awards are based purely on public voting, it just goes to show the need for a hyperconvergence virtualisation platform designed for simplicity, availability and scalability."
Rob Titley, IT Manager, Breedon Aggregates, reinforces this sentiment: "We needed something simple and scalable, as we don't know how much we're growing from year to year. With HC3, we are able to scale as and when it is needed. With high availability built in, it allows us to not worry about downtime and focus on the business. It delivers everything we need at an affordable cost. The support and expertise provided by Scale Computing has also been invaluable in supporting our virtualisation strategy."
