Scale Computing, a clustered storage vendor has announced upgrades to its storage cluster which now includes compute resources and delivers easier management and allocation of storage and memory along with reduction in costs. These compute resources are dedicated to apps and a hypervisor component. The new HC3 update is being promoted as infrastructure in a box. The company states that this appliance can do away with the need to buy shared storage, virtualization software and external servers. This also reduces the complexity of the virtualization ecosystem. The HC3 also has a virtualization tab which can be found in the management console.
This tab empowers administrators to select computing, memory and storage functions from a pool. Scale Computing is keeping pace with the industry which is increasingly turning towards products that promise more than one function.
This class of products helps in reducing the need to buy different products and reduces the complexity involved in the management of virtual machine ecosystems.
