INDIANAPOLIS — Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, with a prestigious 5-Star Award in its 2024 Partner Program Guide. The annual guide provides essential information to solution providers exploring technology vendor partner programs that offer high value and align with their business needs and goals. The 5-star rating is awarded to the companies that have built their partner programs to go above and beyond in their commitment to nurturing strong, profitable, and successful channel partnerships.

“We take great pride in the Scale Computing Partner Community, as we have always been a channel-first company,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “Receiving a 5-star rating for the sixth year in a row is a great achievement and a testament to our ongoing commitment to providing our partners and customers with innovative and resilient IT solutions. We look forward to continuing to invest heavily in our partner community as we help our partners navigate the uncertainty in today’s market.”

Scale Computing Platform (SC//Platform) brings faster time to value in the data center, distributed enterprise, and edge. It brings simplicity, high availability, and scalability together, replacing the existing infrastructure and offering the ability to run VMs on a single, easy-to-manage platform. As the industry-leading VMware alternative, SC//Platform reduces downtime by up to 90% and reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by 40%.

Scale Computing also recently announced two exclusive promotions for VMware partners and customers looking for a new virtualization solution. Current and new partners looking to switch customers to Scale Computing can participate in the VMware Rip & Replace promotion and receive a 25% discount on Scale Computing software and services for each new customer implementation. VMware customers looking for an alternative with no-cost coverage for their remaining contract terms can participate in the Seamless Switch Program.
