Scale Computing

Contributor(s): Sarah Wilson

Scale Computing is a data storage vendor whose flagship product is the hyper-converged infrastructure HC3.

Scale Computing's original data storage product, Intelligent Clustered Storage (ICS) began shipping in June 2009, the same time the vendor came out of stealth. ICS was a clustered storage system that was built around IBM's General Parallel File System.

In August 2012, Scale Computing launched its HC3 scale-out converged storage system. The HC3 combines compute, storage server virtualization and networking into ready-to-install nodes. It uses Red Hat's KVM hypervisor and either Windows Server or Linux operating systems. The HC3 comes in three models with varying specifications: the HC1000, HC2000 and HC4000. They are available in three, four six or eight node configurations.
