Scale Computing And IBM Have Teamed Together To Provide Enterprise Clients With Large-scale Edge Computing Solutions

Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyper-converged solutions, announced today a collaboration with IBM that will help organizations adopt an edge computing strategy designed to enable them to move data and applications seamlessly across hybrid cloud environments.

Scale Computing's edge computing solutions are designed to be flexible and intelligent to help address high availability and resilience. According to a recent IBM Institute for Business Value report, "Why organizations are betting on edge computing: Insights from the edge," 91% of the 1,500 executives surveyed indicated that their organizations plan to implement edge computing strategies within five years.

IBM Edge Application Manager, which runs on Red Hat OpenShift, enables the secured deployment, continuous operations, and remote management of artificial intelligence, analytics, and the internet of things enterprise workloads to deliver real-time analysis and insights at scale.

Over the last 18 months, storage and compute have undergone transformational changes, from employee and customer health and safety, supply chain challenges, to shifting product demands, to being an increasing target of cyber-attacks.

"We believe that Edge computing is critical for the future of many organizations, and organizations of all sizes across all industries can take steps now to help simplify the deployment and management of localized compute infrastructure in a secure and resilient manner."

We are excited to team our Edge Computing solutions with IBM Edge Application Manager in an effort to help organizations maximize their operations across the globe with infrastructure designed to be self-healing and automated, as well as added containerized application management that can help them grow into the new reality of edge computing.

Customers can run modern containerized applications alongside legacy applications as virtual machines with Scale Computing's Edge Computing solutions.

This can help users centrally monitor and manage their fleet of distributed infrastructure and applications through the entire lifecycle. IBM will be collaborating with Scale Computing to help clients deploy, operate and manage thousands of endpoints throughout their operations with IBM Edge Application Manager.

"We can help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation by acting on insights closer to where their data is being created, at the edge."

More than 30 equipment manufacturers, networking, IT, and software providers are part of IBM's partner network that implement open standards-based cloud-native solutions that can autonomously manage edge applications at scale.

Red Hat OpenShift, the industry's leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, is powered by IBM's partner ecosystem, which helps clients manage and modernize workloads from bare-metal to multi-cloud and everything in between.
