INDIANAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Scale Computing, a magazine on edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, announced today that Data Center Dynamics has named the partnership’s work with Northern Marine Group as a finalist in the Edge Data Center Project of the Year category of the 2022 DCD>Awards.
According to DCD, the edge is driven by greater connectivity and the growing sophistication of systems, devices and tools management, and is now maturing as mainstream IT delivery options for companies seeking more immediate and location-sensitive reach. The Edge Data Center Project of the Year Award category recognizes projects that demonstrate a unique and strategic approach to how edge deployment success is designed, built, and operated, and demonstrates how the edge creates opportunities in IT delivery and business objectives.
The Navy’s Northern Fleet ships rely on a number of critical applications — if the Internet on the ship is interrupted, navigation will fail, as it will not be possible for the navigator to chart the ship’s course. North Sea business leaders wanted to upgrade the existing IT infrastructure to load ships, electronic internet connectivity (including satellite connectivity and latency), ensure servers remain online and operational with minimal downtime, reduce exposure to costly repairs en-route and comply with controls. requirements, all while handling limited onboard IT personnel. The North Sea Scale Computing Cluster deployed HyperCore SC// for its operations at sea and realized immediate benefits from increased performance and easier management.
“With today’s complex IT infrastructure environment, it is increasingly important to have edge computing applications anytime, anywhere,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and Co-founder of Scale Computing. “Edge computing plays a critical role in driving industry innovation and digital transformation, and in this case, Scale Computing enabled Northern Marine to implement their critical transport applications with self-healing, automated infrastructure. We are thrilled to be named a finalist in the DCD>Awards for our work with Marine Northern, which has successfully deployed our innovative computing and hyperconverged solutions.”
Cloud computing brings simplicity, availability, and scale together by replacing existing infrastructure and applications in a single, easy-to-deploy platform. SC// HyperCore saves valuable time and resources because software, servers, and storage are all fully integrated into one platform. The same innovative software and simple user interface control the infrastructure of the user, regardless of the hardware configuration. Using patented HyperCore technology, the award-winning, self-healing platform identifies, mitigates, and corrects problems in real-time.
The awards announcement comes on the heels of other recent industry recognition, including:
SC//Class Manager has been named a winner for the 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Awards in the Edge Computing category.
Scale Computing named to CRN’s 2022 Edge Computing 100 list.
