NEC Launches New Easy-to-Deploy, Highly Efficient Hyperconverged Infrastructure Solution

Sponsored by Businesswire

NEC Corporation of America and NEC Enterprise Solutions (EMEA), today
announced a new hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution powered by
Scale Computing’s HC3 software. The new platform, NEC HCI, provides a
complete virtualized solution in a single appliance, designed for rapid
deployment, ease-of-use, seamless scaling, high performance and cost

“As the HCI market continues to expand significantly, we wanted to offer
a competitive solution that provides value to our partners and
customers,” said Ram Menghani, Senior Vice President, NEC Enterprise
Communications Technologies, Inc. “Due to Scale Computing’s knowledge
and current success in the HCI market, NEC is proud to partner with them
to provide a competitive HCI solution that complements our existing
technology offerings.”

“We’re excited about this partnership and the launch of NEC HCI in North
America and EMEA,” said Dan Pierce, Vice President of Strategic Sales,
Scale Computing. “NEC Hyperconverged Infrastructure, powered by Scale
HC3 software, is the ideal solution for customers requiring
ease-of-use and high availability with a low TCO.”

Scalability and Availability

NEC HCI is ideal for small-to-medium sized enterprises and remote or
branch offices that must support mission critical applications. By using
NEC’s D120h high-density server, the platform has the capability of
hosting four individual server nodes. This results in a smaller
datacenter footprint, meaning greater efficiency and reduced
infrastructure costs.

One of the most challenging tasks for IT can be adding capacity to
existing infrastructure. With NEC HCI, new appliances can be added into
a running cluster seamlessly and within minutes. To scale out resources
as needed, different models and capacities can be used together in
various combinations. Appliances are also pre-configured with three
levels of configurations to meet specific workloads–base, mid-range and
power–but can be customized if pre-packed models don’t meet the needs of
a customer.

Simplicity and Virtualization

NEC’s HCI is designed to provide operational simplicity through highly
intelligent automation and architecture. Since the software is
pre-installed, the customer can simply add networking information to
deploy rapidly, supporting NEC’s commitment to excellent customer
experience. Additionally, the platform includes the hypervisor with no
additional third-party costs or licensing fees, giving customers the
ability to lower overall IT management and costs.

NEC’s HCI solution, powered by Scale Computing, will be available within
calendar Q2 through NEC’s channel partners. For more information about
