Scale Computing, an edge computing and hyperconvergence specialist, is partnering with Wasabi Technologies, a cloud storage company.

The partnership will facilitate a fast and reliable solution for hybrid cloud storage, archiving, and backup that allows organisations to deploy and manage hundreds of locations with cloud-like orchestration.

Wasabi intends to offer low-cost cloud storage for mass data collection on Scale Computing’s infrastructure software platform so companies can collect and retain data when needed.

Scott Mann, VP of sales at Scale Computing, said: “Data collection is increasing exponentially every year across every industry. Video surveillance, IoT sensors, and even legacy applications have the ability to collect more real-time data.

“This has led to an ever-increasing number of business requirements surrounding data retention and with it, unmanageable data storage costs. This partnership empowers enterprises to run their business-critical applications on Scale Computing alongside the cost-effective public cloud offering from Wasabi. As an enterprise grows, the new solution offers capacity scalability, plus the performance benefits of a hybrid cloud.”

Scale Computing software provides an IT infrastructure solution designed for on-premises applications.

With the addition of Wasabi hot cloud storage as a data retention and archival target, both traditional data centre and edge computing environments running on Scale Computing will benefit from additional storage options.

“By combining industry-leading, on-premises edge computing with easy-to-use cloud data retention and archival, we’re creating the ideal, agile hybrid cloud environment that today’s organisations need.

“Wasabi’s solution is eighty percent less expensive and is faster than first-generation cloud vendors, while Scale Computing has a strong reputation for delivering results to leading businesses around the world. We’re thrilled to be partnering with them,” noted David Boland, VP of cloud strategy at Wasabi Technologies.
