INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - September 26, 2016) - Scale Computing, the market leader in hyperconverged storage, server and virtualization solutions for midsized companies, announced today that it has been honored with three XCellence Awards for Best in Show, Best Hardware, and Best Boardroom Presentation categories during The Channel Company's Midsize Enterprise Summit® (MES) West 2016 Conference. Determined by CIOs and senior IT executives attending the event, the MES XCellence awards highlight the best midmarket products, services, programs, and presentations. By winning these awards year after year, Scale Computing continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing innovative solutions designed to accelerate ROI for the midmarket.

Scale Computing's HC3® platform brings storage, servers, virtualization and management together in a single, comprehensive system. With no virtualization software to license and no external storage to buy, HC3 products lower out-of-pocket costs and radically simplify the infrastructure needed to keep applications running. HC3 products make the deployment and management of a highly available and scalable infrastructure as easy to manage as a single server.

"The MES West XCellence Awards recognize IT vendors that understand the unique challenges and opportunities facing the midmarket," said Lisa MacKenzie, Senior Vice President of Events, The Channel Company. "We congratulate the winning companies for their commitment and innovation to the midmarket and look forward to their continued success."

"Being recognized for these awards at this venue is a tremendous honor as the midmarket is often such an overlooked business segment in today's IT discussions," said Jeff Ready, CEO, and co-founder of Scale Computing. "This is a market where IT departments are spread thin or have only generalist supporting the infrastructure and the critical applications running those environments in addition to the day-to-day help desk support. To be named Best for these three awards continues to validate that our approach to bringing the benefits of simplicity, availability and scalability through our HC3 hyperconverged architecture to satisfy the requirements of this market is spot on. We are grateful for this honor and look forward to continuing our efforts helping those in the midmarket overcome their IT challenges."

The Channel Company hosted the Midsize Enterprise Summit West Conference at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas, from September 18-20. Hundreds of midmarket CIOs and senior-level IT decision-makers gathered to meet with top technology vendors and Gartner industry analysts to forge new contacts and discuss technology's role in the midmarket landscape. Midmarket executives leave this event with the latest research, technology advancements and business-building strategies that will help them exceed their organizations' IT goals.
