Ottawa, Canada (September 27, 2010)—Interwork Technologies, a top, service-oriented distributor of data security and IP communication products in North America announces today its partnership with Scale Computing to offer their unified, scale-out storage solutions to the mid-market. Based on its Intelligent Clustered Storage™ (ICS) technology, Scale’s portfolio of storage solutions can help businesses reduce costs, increase control and make storage management more convenient for IT administrators.
“Resellers who sell storage need to take a close look at Scale Computing. Ranked as one of America’s most promising companies by Forbes, Scale offers low-price, high-performance solutions are ideal for resellers that want to meet their customers’ virtualization, archiving and SMB storage needs,” said Ken Lewis, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Interwork Technologies. “Resellers can also take advantage of Scale’s 100 percent channel commitment and deal registration program to win deals and make high margins,” added Lewis. “It’s great to work with a vendor like Scale and I’m confident resellers will generate a lot of new storage business with the company’s solutions.”
Because its ICS technology is clustered rather than a controller-based architecture, Scale’s Starter Cluster contains three nodes to provide the redundancy and data protection companies need in the rare event of a drive or node failure. This inherent functionality allows companies to take advantage of high-performance, flexible storage solutions that scale as business needs dictate—and without experiencing downtime to valuable services or information.
With Scale ICS technology, companies can add storage hardware, or nodes, as their needs dictate, without interrupting critical services or migrating data. As a unified storage platform, Scale’s Starter Cluster line of products enables simultaneous storage area network (SAN) and network attached storage (NAS) services from a single pool of storage to provide enterprise-class, truly clustered and highly scalable storage.
“We are pleased and excited to be working with Interwork Technologies,” said Jeff Ready, CEO of Scale Computing. “Interwork’s focus on high margin solutions and personalized customer service is an ideal match for us. As a 100 percent channel organization, we’re looking forward to working with them to help their network close deals and generate leads.”
