Scale Computing Brings Fleet Management to the Edge


Scale Computing has announced a new management and monitoring solution geared toward MSPs and and organizations using edge computing. The Scale Computing Fleet Manager is designed to simplify management of distributed IT architectures and is available through the company's new Scale Computing Platform.

The new offering consolidates real-time conditions for a fleet of clusters, which includes storage and compute resources. IT managers may use the Fleet Manager to quickly pinpoint areas of concern through a holistic unified pane of class, with scaling capabilities from one to more than 50,000 clusters.

Fleet Manager works by giving users the tools to view and manage their entire fleet from a single, intuitive cloud-based console. Features include the ability to view connectivity and cluster health as well as automatic highlighting of any problems across the fleet. This enables administrators to easily drill down into problematic clusters to diagnose and fix issues.

“The emergence of cloud computing significantly accelerated the digitization of business," said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. "It gave us better availability and scalability without the burden of managing infrastructure. However, not all applications can or should run from the cloud. The promise of edge computing is to bring applications closer to the people and things interacting with them without sacrificing cloud-like ease of use, scalability, and high availability.”

Scale Computing also announced improvements to its HyperCore software, which provides the foundation of the Scale Computing platform. The software bundles a variety of open source as well as proprietary, intelligent software to form a simplified operating system for managing clusters. The software is custom-built on the KVM architecture and integrates with the Scale Computing Reliable Independent Block Engine (SCRIBE) storage layer to simplify virtualization and software automation.

The update also adds REST-APIs to HyperCore to enhance speed and ease of deployment for VMS and containers at scale using the open-source Cloud-init technology.

“Our customers tell us they cannot be successful with edge computing without the best fleet management," said Scott Loughmiller, chief product officer and xo-founder of Scale Computing. "If you are deploying applications outside of centralized data centers, at the edge of your network closest to where that data is created and utilized, we can help you manage hundreds or thousands of distributed edge infrastructure deployments with few or no on-site IT personnel.”

The Edge of the network is quickly becoming the critical home of Intelligence as well as data collection. Be part of the conversation at Intelligent Edge Expo, part of the IoT Evolution Expo experience.  Intelligent Edge Expo delivers education and networking opportunity around sensors, gateways, endpoints, network connections, and ever more importantly, Intelligence that helps IoT-enable organizations become ever more efficient, sustainable and profitable.
