Scale Computing Adds Acronis to Growing Technology Alliance Program

Scale Computing, developers of HC3, the industry’s leading hyperconverged solution built for midmarket companies that seamlessly combines servers, storage and virtualization into a single system, announced today a partnership with Acronis, a leading provider of data protection and disaster recovery solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments. Acronis joins Scale Computing’s Technology Alliance Program extending the growing ecosystem of trusted, reliable application providers surrounding Scale Computing’s HC3 product.

“We are excited to expand our feature set through this partnership with Acronis,” said Patrick Conte, EVP and GM of Worldwide Field Operations for Scale Computing. “We are currently building an HC3 ecosystem of top application providers which our VARs and customers can trust for quality, value-added features that are necessary to their business operations.”

The partnership provides Scale Computing’s HC3 customers with a best-in-class solution for data protection and disaster recovery with secure data migration, using Acronis Backup & Recovery® 11.5 Virtual Edition, a comprehensive and flexible solution that supports all major hypervisors.

Scale Computing has transformed their affordable scale-out storage cluster into a hyperconverged solution that combines servers, storage, and virtualization into the industry’s first product that delivers virtualized infrastructure-as-an-appliance.

HC3 makes the deployment and management of a highly available and scalable infrastructure as easy to manage as a single server. HC3 removes all of the complexity of managing a virtualized environment, eases the challenges of working with multiple vendors, and enables IT departments to actually focus their time on the applications making their companies profitable.

“HC3 is an advanced hyperconverged virtualization solution that opens a new market of SMB users who could otherwise not afford or maintain a virtualized environment due to the complexity of traditional architecture,” said Steve Erdman, Senior Vice President, Global Business Development, Acronis. “HC3 will help us reach new midsize businesses and provide them with uncomplicated enterprise-class data protection solutions that enable them to maintain data availability efficiently.”

Acronis Backup & Recovery® 11.5 Virtual Edition complements HC3 in providing agent-based backup of virtual machines, bare metal recovery of an entire image, and physical to virtual data migration. With integrated file, system, machine and granular application backup and recovery, Acronis offers a flexible and comprehensive solution that can evolve with an the needs of the HC3 customer. Acronis Backup & Recovery® 11.5 Virtual Edition supports all major hypervisors, and also offers automated staging to the cloud as an option for off-premise storage, and added layer of redundancy.

Ideal for first-time virtualizers and small IT departments, a complete 3-node HC3 cluster capable of 15 – 30 virtual workloads starts at under $25,500 and includes all necessary servers, storage and virtualization, along with 24x7 premium support.
