Scale Computing Customer Edge Data Center Project Named a Finalist in 2022 DCD>Awards


According to DCD, Edge is being driven by greater connectivity and increasing sophistication of systems, devices and management tools, and is now evolving into a mainstream IT deployment option for organizations looking for a more immediate and location-based reach. The Edge Data Center Project of the Year category recognizes projects that demonstrate a unique and strategic approach to designing, building and operating a successful Edge deployment and how Edge creates opportunities to achieve IT and business goals.

Northern Marine’s fleet of ships rely on a multitude of critical applications – when the onboard internet goes down intermittently, their navigation fails, making it impossible for a ship’s navigator to track its course. Northern Marine’s corporate leaders wanted to upgrade the existing IT infrastructure onboard their vessels, address intermittent internet connections (including satellite connectivity and latency), ensure servers stay online and operational with minimal downtime, reduce the risk of expensive repairs en route, and comply with regulatory requirements , and all with limited IT staff on board. Northern Marine deployed Scale Computing’s SC//HyperCore clusters to run its marine operations smoothly and realized immediate benefits through improved performance and simplified management.

“In today’s complex IT infrastructure environments, it is increasingly important that edge computing can support applications anytime, anywhere,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “Edge computing plays a critical role in every industry’s IT innovation and digital transformation strategy, and in this case, Scale Computing enabled Northern Marine to run their critical onboard IT applications with a self-healing, automated infrastructure. We are delighted to have been recognized as a DCD>Awards finalist for our work with Northern Marine, who have successfully deployed our innovative edge computing and hyperconverged solutions.”

Scale Computing Platform combines simplicity, high availability and scalability, replacing existing infrastructure and running applications on a single, easy-to-manage platform. SC//HyperCore saves time and valuable resources by having software, servers and storage on one fully integrated platform. The same innovative software and simple user interface supports a user’s infrastructure, regardless of their hardware configuration. Using patented HyperCore™ technology, the award-winning, self-healing platform identifies, reduces and fixes problems in real time.
