Scale Computing Positioned in Leading Analyst Firm’s Magic Quadrant for Midrange and High-End NAS Solutions

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Scale Computing, a developer and manufacturer of intelligent, clustered storage solutions tailored to the virtualization and archiving needs of the small and medium-sized enterprise (SME), today announced that Gartner, Inc. has recognized Scale in its 2011 Magic Quadrant for Midrange and High-End NAS Solutions report*.  Scale is positioned in the Niche Players quadrant.

According to Gartner, “Vendors in the Niche Players quadrant are often narrowly focused on specific market or vertical segments, such as SMBs or high-performance computing (HPC), that are generally underpenetrated by the larger midrange and high-end NAS vendors. This quadrant may also include vendors that may have products that address the broad market but are still ramping up their overall go-to-market efforts and have yet to develop the vision or the execution to break out of the Niche Players quadrant.”

“We are focused on delivering scale-out storage solutions that offer the features needed by SMEs, and at a price that fits within their budget,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder, Scale Computing.  “Our intelligent storage solution is perfectly suited for virtualization implementations, providing an affordable storage solution that is able to scale with both capacity and performance.  As our traditional competitors push non-unified, non-scalable Generation 2.0 technology not ideal for virtual strategies, demand for our offering positions Scale Computing for continued growth.”
